Fou Gallery is delighted to invite you to join the closing reception of Fou Gallery’s current exhibition Fernando Villela and Zhe Zhu: Time Flies So First Things First from 3-6pm, on Saturday, March 17, 2018. In this event, you will walk through the exhibition with artist Fernando Villela and curator Echo He to learn about the exhibition concept and creative process.

From 6:30-8pm, Franco-American violinist Elissa Cassini will present program "From Bach to Buenos Aires" in a revised version to connect the theme of the exhibition.

For Time Flies So First Things First , Villela and Zhu creates a presentation that resembles a stream of consciousness, with photographs of natural and built environments, of abstraction and figuration. Pinned directly on the wall, the images travel in a flow along the parallel walls of the gallery, and explode when they reach the final wall space. The exhibition reflects upon many aspects of the human condition in the contemporary world: the rapid dissemination of information, the surplus of materials, the isolation of human beings despite increased connectivity, the blurred boundaries between the organic and the inorganic.

Cassini's revised program spans from classic music by Bach, Eugène Ysaÿe, to contemporay pieces Astor Piazzola. Her music transcends conventional stylistic boundaries on the instrument from Baroque violin to electronically enhanced scores. By combining baroque performance practice all the way to adventurous 21st Century scores, Cassini creates a special dialogue with the special installation at Fou Gallery through music. 

 

3月17日3-6pm,否画廊诚邀您前来参加展览《费尔南多·维利纳和朱喆:先办正事》的闭幕酒会和艺术家对话。在这场活动中,艺术家费尔南多·维利纳和策展人何雨将带您欣赏目前的展览,并解释创作过程和艺术观念。

6:30-8pm,画廊还将举办一场特别的闭幕音乐会,由小提琴演奏家艾丽莎·卡西尼为大家带来《从巴赫到布宜诺斯艾利斯》,该曲目是卡西尼为本次展览特别编制,融合巴赫,易沙意,杰瓦索尼和皮亚佐拉等大师的经典乐章。

在《先办正事》中,维利纳和朱喆以一种意识流的方式呈现关于自然、环境、抽象和形态的摄影作品。未经装裱的相片直接钉在画廊墙面,交汇碰撞,形成一条流动的图像之河,在最后一面墙面突然迸发开来。 展览映射出当代社会中的众生相:迅速膨胀的信息,高度过剩的物质资源,科技发展使人们紧密相连却又空前孤独,有机生命与无机物品之间的界限也日渐模糊。

卡西尼的演奏节目涵盖了巴赫,欧仁·伊萨伊的古典曲目,到阿斯托·皮亚佐拉的当代作品。 她的音乐超越了传统意义的风格边界,从巴洛克式的小提琴演奏到电子音乐。 通过将巴洛克表演与创新的当代曲目相结合,卡西尼通过音乐与两位当代艺术家对话,结合在否画廊的展览,创造出一个跨越音乐和视觉艺术的整体体验。

About the Musician

ElissaCassini-ManhattanShot.jpg

Elissa Cassini is a Franco-American violinist whose concerto appearances span from Beethoven, Bruch, Schumann and Sibelius, to Philip Glass’s “American Four Seasons” with the Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne under Laura Jackson. Her passion for new music was sparked when Pierre Boulez invited her to the Lucerne Festival in 2009. She has since collaborated with internationally acclaimed composers such as Beat Furrer, Georg Friedrich Haas, Alexandre Lunsqui, Tristan Murail and Kaija Saariaho. Seeking to transcend the traditional recital format, Elissa has also created the Duplexity Project, a series of virtuoso duos featuring innovative thematic programming.

小提琴家艾丽莎·卡西尼是一位法裔美国人,她的演出曲目涵盖贝多芬、布鲁赫、舒曼、西贝柳斯等作曲家的作品,并曾与由劳拉•杰克逊执导的布列塔尼交响乐团共同演出菲利普•格拉斯的曲目“美国四季”。2009年,卡西尼受到皮耶.布莱兹的邀请参加了卢塞恩艺术节,并开始了对于新音乐满怀热忱的探索。自此,她曾与多位享誉国际的作曲家合作,其中包括 Beat Furrer, Georg Friedrich Haas, Alexandre Lunsqui, Tristan Murail 和 Kaija Saariaho等。为了在传统的演奏模式之外寻求新的可能性,卡西尼成立了Duplexity Project, 以推广一系列具有创新主题和编曲形式的大师级二重奏。Duplexity Project的演出还结合了舞蹈、戏剧和新媒体等形式,为艺术家和观众之间带来了丰富多样的互动与对话。
