Bleu Remix, Yann Marussich, with sound performance by Steve Roden and Glenn Bach
Friday, August 24, 7 p.m.
In his spectacle-installationÂ Bleu Remix,Â Yann MarussichÂ returns to a theme originally explored inÂ Bleu ProvisoireÂ (2001), a spectacle in which a mysterious blue liquid oozes through the layers of his skin as though it were the final effect or by-product of his body’s inner processes. InÂ Bleu Remix, the artist once more invites the viewer to experience an intimate journey through the corners of his body. Each time the spectacle is performed, a different (local) musician accompanies Marussich. This unique, singular confrontation establishes a new relationship between the sound and image. The meeting of the two artists brings an element of risk and uniqueness to the event, as if the music explores the spectacle repeatedly, resulting in new ways of perception. â‚¬Â¨Marussich’s spectacle-installation at Grand Central Art Center will be accompanied by live sound performed by artistsÂ Steve RodenÂ andÂ Glenn Bach.
This program is in collaboration withÂ LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), with support forÂ Bleu RemixÂ at both venues generously provided byÂ swissnex San Francisco, theÂ Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, and the City and Canton of Geneva.
