NN Contemporary is pleased to announce that the first UK Solo exhibition of Italian duo Invernomuto will be the next exhibition at NN Contemporary. The video installation ‘Vers l’Europa Deserta, Terra Incognita’ will be presented alongside a sculptural and performance component of the critically acclaimed platform ‘Black Med’ (currently part of the Ralph Rugoff performance programme in the 2019 Venice Biennale). The programme launches with a performance event on the 13th of June at NN Contemporary, the full line up to be announced soon.
Simone Bertuzzi (b. 1983) and Simone Trabucchi (b. 1982) have been collaborating as Invernomuto since 2003. Although their work focuses primarily on the moving image and sound, they also integrate sculpture, performance and publishing into their practice
Black Med Performance at NN Contemporary on the 13th of June, 2019 at 8 pm:
Initiated by Invernomuto for Manifesta 12: The Planetary Garden (Palermo, 2018). Following Alessandra Di Maio’s adaptation of Paul Gilroy’s Black Atlantic theory to the Mediterranean, ‘Black Med’ aims at intercepting the trajectories that sounds trace passing through this protean area, with a series of live acts and listening sessions. Divided into three chapters, the listening sessions are based on a live performance lecture containing theoretical texts and backstories referring to the musical pieces. The sessions explore different journeys of sound movement, touching topics such as alternate use of technology, migrations, peripheries and interspecies. The event is free, but strictly by RSVP, please email [email protected] for more information.
