BOOK LAUNCH – Cristian Chironi. Broken English | My house is a Le Corbusier at MAMbo in Bologna
NERO is pleased to announce the launch of the volume Cristian Chironi. Broken English | My house is a Le Corbusier at MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna on the occasion of Arte Fiera/Art City. Published by NERO, the two-sided book contains different projects by the artist. Intersecting and diverging, both projects raise questions surrounding communication, reading and interpretation and concomitant linguistic and socio-political implications.
The project called My House is a Le Corbusier is a work in progress that the artist himself defines as “a crucible of ideas, research and exhibition” and a sort of living experience that is intended to grow over time. Indeed, it is an evolving performance, or cacophony of experiences, undergone by the artist whilst living for variable periods in houses designed by Le Corbusier. On the other hand, Broken English began in 2012 as a performance, before developing into a multilayered exhibition with performative elements. It superimposes linguistic and socio-economic issues through the transformation of uncertain variants of the English language into images, objects, sounds, videos, texts and installations.
At MAMbo Chironi will be in dialogue with Silvia Fanti (direction and coordination, XING), Lorenzo Giusti (Director, MAN) and Giuliano Gresleri, (architect, member of the Scientific Committe for the Cataloging of Le Corbusier works, Fondation Le Corbusier).
