Arts and performances
10 May 2020 On Sunday night, I went for a few hours visiting Central London, from Piccadilly Circus, to Covent Garden, Chinatown, Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Trafalgar Square. Despite not being a fan of the crowded streets in this area, filled with shopping goers, tourists, business people, seeing these streets so empty, silent, felt really lonely, and abandoned, as they were never lived in. I took advantage of the kindness of Nine Inch Nails who released their Ghost I-IV album under a Creative Commons licence. I used their song number 9, which perfectly conveys this melancholia. As per the song also my video is then under Creative Commons licence. "You are free to share and remix the work provided you attribute the author and do not use the work for commercial purposes.

Feel free to share!
05 May 2020 A stroll around Camden Town, usually packed with people, tourists, and shops. Now completely empty, during lockdown. I took advantage of the kindness of Nine Inch Nails who released their Ghost I-IV album under a Creative Commons licence. I used their song number 1, which perfectly conveys this melancholia. As per the song also my video is then under Creative Commons licence. "You are free to share and remix the work provided you attribute the author and do not use the work for commercial purposes.

Once Upon Us : project documentary
Once Upon Us is a composite art project by Immuto in collaboration with sound artist Alessandro Baldessari, choreographer Riccardo Buscarini, Professor Vardhman Rakyan and Queen Mary University of London. Inspired by the latest medical research on how our environment influences our genetic expression and how memories could move across generations through DNA coding, Once Upon Us launches as part of the London Festival of Architecture of June 2019 and explores the blurring boundaries of our individuality across space and time. From 26 June to 7 July, a participatory and sensory installation transmits memories gathered from across the world. The interaction of sound, reflections and changing light becomes a metaphor for the dance that involves the present we are, the past we contain and the future we are creating. On 27 June, audience and leading experts from different fields (from epigenetics to psychology and wisdom traditions) engage in a thought-provoking conversation about the interplay of ancient and new theories on the theme of ancestral memory. On 2 July and as part of the New Horizons in Genomics week at Queen Mary University, artists and scientists come together in a playful evening to build a sculptural installation that questions how our choices shape our relationship with ourselves and the world around us. Where and when do we start? Where and when do we end? Are the boundaries of who we are really as defined in time and space as we think? Concept by Alessandro Baldessari, Francesca Lando, Riccardo Buscarini. Choreography by Riccardo Buscarini. Sound by Alessandro Baldessari. Space by Francesca Lando. Video by Alessandro Mariscalco

Manolo Valdés at Berkeley Square, London
Opera Gallery are delighted to reveal the brand new public sculpture "Butterflies" by Spanish artist Manolo Valdés. The colossal sculpture was installed at Berkeley Square in London, and is one of six sculptures included in London’s City of Westminster's 'City of Sculpture' initiative. 'City of Sculpture' launched in 2010 to promote public art ahead of London 2012. It is now a rolling programme in collaboration with many of London's galleries as well as international galleries and artists to commission and showcase pieces of art. Weighing over five tonnes, the giant aluminium sculpture will be residing at its Mayfair location for the next six months. "One day, while strolling in Central Park, I saw butterflies fluttering over a person's head. That inspired me! From that moment, I saw butterflies everywhere!" Manolo Valdés. Film: DANIELE BANZATO
