Helzer Gallery features 'TILT Export' by Kartz Ucci
Photos and Story by James Hill
This month in the Helzer Art Gallery at the Rock Creek Campus:
“TILT Export: Kartz Ucci”
Kartz Ucci is an installation artist working with relationships of theory, material and concept within an expanded field of visual exploration that will be on display until the end of October. In Ucci’s piece an opera for one, the artist hired the young Canadian opera soprano, Deanna Pauletto to sing a capella, Pablo Neruda’s book of poetry, "Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair". The piece was recorded in a cement-encased stairwell, 16 stories high. A colour coded score was composed based on Ucci’s interpretation of the relation between colour and its emotional vibration. The resulting installation is a hauntingly romantic response to this effort.
