Italian artist Piero Mottola combines visual arts and sound in Cuba

Havana, May 14 (Prensa Latina) Entitled "Voices of Life," Italian artist Piero Mottola is rediscovering the connections between visual arts and sound with an exhibition included in the program of the 14th Havana Biennial on Thursday.

Open to the public at the National Museum of Fine Arts, the project has been supported by students and professors from the Faculty of Music of the University of the Arts (ISA).

According to Museum Director Jorge Fernandez, the participants will form a choir on the steps of the Universal Art building as an introduction to this sound proposal, which has an algorithm that works with moods and emotions.

Fernandez recalled that the creator has returned to Cuba with this exhibition, as he participated in the Havana Biennial in 2012 as part of a collective project developed on Italia Avenue, also known as Galiano Street.

This time, Mottola is experimenting with a software designed by himself to influence the spectator as he goes through the piece, “feeling all these nuances and interpreting the expressions of each one of the young people who are participating in this game,” the museum director explained.

He pointed out that the installation and video lead to an experience, as in slow motion, which instead of being based on body movements, presents sound as an agent that can set the rhythm of that state of mind.

Cuba’s main visual arts event will be held until April 30 at different venues in this capital, with 18 special projects such as “Detrás del Muro,” (Behind the Wall), “Disonancias,” (Dissonances) and “Farmacia,” (Pharmacy), which involve 100 national and foreign artists.
