Marco Fusinato

'Melbourne in Glasgow'

SWG3, 100 Eastvale Pl, Glasgow G3 8QG

25 April 2012

As part of 'Melbourne in Glasgow', Marco Fusinato occupied Glasgow’s SWG3, for an all-day noise performance that extended the traditional language of the guitar to ‘distressed oblivion…unleashing a tsunami of ecstatic free noise’.

Marco Fusinato (born 1964, Melbourne, Australia) has a long history with both visual arts and experimental music, harnessing a chaotic range of forces and collapsing them into singular pulses of contained energy. Through wide ranging forms of work in gallery contexts and performances, Fusinato foregrounds moments of disruption and impact in which lie the possibility of a shift in perception or change in the course of events.

Projects include ‘Parallel Collisions’, The Adelaide Biennale of Australian Art; ‘The Imminence of Poetics’, 30th Sao Paulo Biennale; ISCP Residency in NYC and a new solo LP, L’Origine/Tema (Penultimate Press, London) (all 2012); ‘Sonic Youth etc. – Sensational Fix’, CA2M, Madrid (2010), Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, and The Museum of Malmo, Sweden; ‘Still Vast Reserves’, Magazzino d’arte Moderna, Rome; ‘NEW 09′, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne; Lo Sguardo di Giano’, American Academy in Rome (all 2009); ‘Underplayed: A Mix-Tape of Music-based Videos’, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; ‘The Unquiet World’, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (both 2006); ‘Sensational: Sight and Sound Installations’, Auckland Art Gallery (2005); ‘ART>MUSIC: Rock, Pop, Techno’, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2001); and Primavera, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (1998).
