CYFEST 15: Vulnerability x Art Night Venice

June 22, 2024

8—11 pm

CREA - One Contemporary Art Space, Giudecca 211-b, 30133 Venice

As part of All Forces Balance Program curated by Sara Bizai, Gaia De Santi. Filippo Vane, and Victoria Fadeeva.

We are thrilled to announce our upcoming participation in Art Night Venice, taking place 22 June 2024. 

Art Night Venice is an initiative designed and organized by Ca' Foscari University in collaboration with the Municipality of Venice. With each passing year, this annual cultural event is gaining more recognition, with over a hundred distinguished city institutions joining in. Art Night facilitates short-term and long-standing creative collaborations throughout Venice while strengthening connections between the city and the university.

Our Art Night program features two performances and an installation. Nao Nishihara uses his own body and self-built machines to explore modes of perception of sound, space, and human sensibilities. Take Care of Yourself by Sara Cecconi invites visitors to perform simple actions to remove boundaries and gain freedom so that everything has a right to exist and everyone can be themselves. Irina Korina reunites the decor of late modernist public interiors and her childhood memories in the form of architectural-related installation made of inflatable fabric sculptures and furniture. All three works are in dialogue with the CYFEST 15 ongoing exhibition, exploring the theme of Vulnerability manifested in perception, relation, material, or subjectivity.

Nao Nishihara, Venice, Acoustic Sound Performance

Nao Nishihara is an artist and active practitioner of sound activities, sound art, performance, recording, and instrument production. An object or human body inevitably produces sound. Nao explores these sounds and attempts to show them through their activities using self-built machines and his body.

«My performance is an abstract musical expression in a friendly street performance style, with a drum on my back and a flute in my hand. The music I create is diverse, including contemporary, pop, hardcore punk, and traditional music from around the world. The live acoustic sound and the space prove our existence and sensations.» — Nao Nishihara
