for”Happy Hour in A major”

Gea Brown is the author of the sound composition in this exhibitions. She will be at Micamera for a dedicated live performance.

Gea Brown is the stage name of Alessandra Tempesti,  curator and sound artist with a personal approach to djing. Her production is characterized by the recurrent presence of various material like spoken word, theatrical pièce, poetry and interviews –  different registers that she uses to experiment with the possibility of a balance between the narrative and semantic aspect of the spoken language and its intrinsically sonic dimension.
Active since 2010, over the years she has developed various collaborations in the visual and performing arts, creating site-specific sound interventions and soundtracks for theater performances.
Her performances have been presented in contemporary art centers and cultural institutions, including: Villa Romana (Florence), Istituto Svizzero (Rome), Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi (Florence), La Triennale (Milan), Kunstwerk (Cologne), Kunstraum Walcheturm (Zurich).
She has participated to a number of international electronic music festivals, including: Nextech, NODE, Terraforma, Sonic Somatic, FORMA Free Music Impulse, Oscillation Festival, Transart.
She has been artist-in-residence at Hotel Pupik, Schrattenberg, 2016; ON
– Neue Musik Koln, Cologne, 2018; Q-O2, Brussels, 20

 

 

Alessandra Piolotto is an explorer of anonymous photographs. 
The focus of her investigations is an image, the author of which is unknown, as is its context and origin. Piolotto has developed, through an intense exercise of attention, a method for navigating the image, inhabiting it. The practice is slow and precise: she follows clues and collects evidence, from the simple and precious — an inscription on the back, say (a dedication, or the name of a place) — to the microscopic, inaccessible to the untrained eye.

Photography is for me a place of visual and semantic experimentation; it creates connections to other languages, amplifying the possible translations of the perceptible and becoming a bridge to other artistic expressions such as textile, writing, sculpture and sound.
What changes over time is not the act of seeing, but the experience of it.
– A. Piolotto
