360 Transparent is an installation consisting of various instruments and amplifiers that give it the look of a concert stage. The objects are in place, as if ready for use. Everything is plugged in and connected. The installation is accompanied by a 1h20 musical soundtrack that runs in a loop, a device evoking a kind of ghostly concert. Davide Balula composed each piece to represent a work of art. 360 Transparent is thus an exhibition in which the pieces are materially absent, but simply evoked through the music, which serves here to represent works and perpetuate their memory. This installation reflects the artist’s interest in working with sound and technology and his exploration of archives and memories.
