The Unplayed Notes Factory

Loris GREAUD – 57e Venice Biennale – Murano, Italy

The Venice Biennale, known as one of the most prestigious artistic event in Europe and in the world is, is an Italian foundation organizing various events such as modern art , dance, music, architecture and cinema exhibitions. The main places where it takes place are the Giardini, very large public gardens.

On the occasion of the 57th Venice Biennale, Loris Gréaud, french conceptual artist , sous le commissariat de Nicolas Bourriaud, under the curating of Nicolas Bourriaud, brings the Campollieto della Pescheria glass furnace, shut down for the last 60 years. The Unplayed Notes Factory  therefore invites visitors to venture out to the island of Murano to discover the awakening of this factory which has been turned into a true “tableau vivant’’.

As partners of this art exhibition, we were applied for the complete technical turn-key realization. Which is composed by the glass roof  lighting, 5.1 sound diffusion, special effects management and integration but  with also the creation of a custom conveyor. The glass blower hooks on it his creation that, thanks to a drop system, sometimes fall on the ground to break. The atmosphere is surrealistic and magic happens.

A project supported by NOIRMONTARTPRODUCTION and the sponsorship of DOTATION EMERIGE with the help of SFX DESIGNER and FONDAZIONE BERENGO.

Artist - The Unplayed Notes Factory

Loris Gréaud is a conceptual installation artist, as well as a filmmaker and architect. His method is characterized by prioritizing the project’s idea over the exhibition. Loris Greaud believes that only the idea and the project itself should be the governing principles, defining in particular the conditions of appearance, display, distribution, and even the length of time and cost. One of the common characteristics among the various projects of Loris Greaud is their scale. By producing work of this magnitude with a global vision, he aims to overwhelm the space and time of the exhibition.
