A riveder le stelle [The Edge of Things #4]

25 February 2017

Brown&Brí – A riveder le stelle

Saturday 25th February, 12noon – 6pm (with a 15 minute performative talk at 4pm)

 

CCA is delighted to present A riveder le stelle by Brown&Brí.  The exhibition is the fourth of CCA’s Spring programme of one-day exhibitions (The Edge of Things) taking place through February and March 2017.

A riveder le stelle is an interpretive re-staging of Swedish composer Ingvar Lidholm’s 20th century choral work of the same name. E quindi uscimmo a riveder le stelle (“And thence we came forth to see again the stars”) is the final line in Inferno, the first canto in Dante’s epic 14th-century poem that describes the emergence into the night sky after travelling through the Underworld.

Brown&Brí are interested in the synesthetic potential of this work and how inspiration can act as a moment of clarity or lunacy. At CCA – using sculptural installation, audio and text – they will present research into instances of symmetry of thought across time and space.

Brown&Brí is a collaborative curatorial and artistic practice. They work with people across disciplines and are interested in those intersections where it’s possible for new languages to be invented. Brown&Brí are Rachel Brown and Brighdín Farren.


The Edge of Things is a programme of one-day exhibitions taking place at CCA through February and March 2017, selected through an Open Call process by CCA and artist Sean Lynch.
