Ye Shanghai (2012)
On the occasion of the vernissage and the opening night of SH Contemporary -- Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair -- celebrated respectively on the 6th and 7th of September, the visual artist and composer Roberto Paci Dalò presents a new live performance linked to the history of Shanghai before 1949.
上海当代艺术博览会的开幕之夜,将会在上海展览中心举办。意大利视觉艺术家/作曲家Roberto Paci Dalò(大鲁),9月6日和7日,会展现一场与1949年前的上海历史相关的表演。
At the core of his music-visual work is the story of the Shanghai Ghetto, an area of approximately one square mile, located in the Hongkou district of Japanese-occupied Shanghai housing about 20,000 Jewish refugees, escaping from Europe.
The performance is based on visual and audio materials from the years between 1933 and 1949. This database of historical media has been converted into a live artwork. The seminal song 'Nights of Shanghai' interpreted by the star Zhou Xuan in 1949, is used as a point of departure. Through a process of decomposition, recomposition and sampling, represents the aural and sonic environment of the piece, becoming a texture -- made out of instrumental and electronic sounds, voices, soundscapes, archive materials -- that embraces the entire performance
The projected home movies and travelogues were filmed in China between 1900 and 1939 by European travelers. Entirely sourced from the historical archive of the British Film Institute, these rare materials are shown in such a context for the first time, being screened in the gigantic main hall of the Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Together with the films are involved photographs, portraits taken by the Jewish photographer Sam Sanzetti, active in Shanghai between 1921 and 1957. These rediscovered images are also part of "Shanghai Ark", an exhibition included in the frame of the 9th Shanghai Biennale 2012.

上海当代艺术展参展艺术家Roberto Paci Dalò之夜上海

值此上海当代艺术展博览会-上海当代艺术展开幕日与开幕之夜,视觉艺术家、作曲家Roberto Paci Dalò将在9月6日、7日奉献主题为“老上海”的全新现场表演。
其视听作品的核心是“上海隔都”的故事,当时坐落在虹口日军占领地区,占地约一平方英里,居住了共20000名从欧洲来的犹太逃难者。
表演取材自1933-1949年间的视听资料。这些历史资料被转换成了现场的艺术作品,以周璇在1
949年演唱的那首广为人知的歌曲“夜上海”为起点。在解构,重构与取样的过程中,声音与声波成为了纹理,它们由乐器,电子音乐,人声,音景,录音组成,涵盖在整个表演过程中。
投影影片与影片中的资料来自于英国电影协会,是1900-1939年间由欧洲的旅行者在中国录制,将被第一次公开展示在上海展览中心大厅的巨大屏幕上。另外还会有一些照片呈现,其中的肖像照是由1921-1957年间活跃在上海的犹太摄影家Sam Sanzetti所摄。这些再发现亦是正在筹备中的2012上海第九届双年展“上海方舟”项目的一部分。
Roberto Paci Dalò'的作品一直关注声音描写和绘画,将相关元素转换为雕塑,装置、音乐、电影、表演。他的表演也与当地的城市探秘与空间表演相合作。身为一名作曲家、音乐家、视觉艺术家及导演,其创作获得了国际上的广泛肯定,其中包括John Cage 和 Aleksandr Sokurov.。作为 Giardini Pensili公司和紫罗兰工厂(Rimini))的建立者与指导者的他,同样在利用数码技术展现现场媒体表演方面表现出一位领航者的风范,许许多多重要的世界电子表演场所中都舞动着他活跃的身影,不凡之作曾呈现于世界范围内的场馆,例如维也纳艺术馆,威尼斯双年展,巴塞罗那米罗美术馆,哥本哈根夏洛特堡,维也纳歌剧厅,柏林MaerzMusik音乐节……。作品目前由Galerie Mario Mazzoli Berlin出品。
