For the Palazzo della Ragione in Bergamo, the artist of Albanian origin Anri Sala (1974) designs a contextualized re-adaptation of his last major production: The time is gone. The computer-generated imagery installation will connect visitors with a magnified image of a record player floating in a space station, playing a new arrangement by Olivier Messiaen Quartet for the end of time for clarinet and saxophone. Its notes propagating throughout the hall in conjunction with flashes of light that follow the rhythm of the music will reveal the architectural lines and frescoes contained in the ancient hall, thus extending to the origins of local public history the bridge between the past and the present, between memory and projection into the future.
