CINEMODERNO Prologue at Careof, Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan

The Prologue to CINEMODERNOSafari: A Sound Performance – will take place at 9pm tomorrow night (25th of October 2016) at Careof, Fabbrica del Vapore.

Continuing its research  – which involves different fields such as cinema, visual and performing arts – Careof launches CINEMODERNO project that alternates live performance and temporary sets where images, sounds and actions interact with each other.

CINEMODERNO hour by hour, and for the duration of 6 weeks, investigates the relationship between the moving image and performance. From the 2nd of November until the 23rd of December 2016 CINEMODERNO alternates four live sessions, each action gives in return its four different sets for 10 days. The artists invited make socio-political considerations/reflections through sound and moving image, they explore the evolution of communication systems and the job issue in the Internet and accelerationism era, contemplating the cinema format as an immersive experience between reality and imaginary.

CINEMODERNO is also composed with some architectural structures thought for the live sessions and realized by Parasite 2.0, a collective.

The whole event looks at how the artists invited express tensions and reflections through a device suspended between bidimension and tridimension. In this configuration CINEMODERNO occurs in two different levels: a performative dimension that lasts the time of an evening, and a second dimension  – a direct outcome  – that leaves a mark in the space. A splinter preserved in the mind in the form of memory or imagination.

Stay tuned and follow CINEMODERNO on an evolving stream on NERO’S BLOG over the next few weeks.
