Fabian Marcaccio and Claudio Baroni
Paintball pigments on wall
Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, Canada
Exhibition: Wallworks; Contemporary Artists and Place

Performed with Music Composer Claudio Baroni in George Weston Hall at the Art Gallery of Toronto, May 12, 2005.

Pioneering a new method of painting, New York-based artist Fabian Marcaccio will direct a squad of eight painters using paintball techniques in the rapid execution of a large scale art work that will transform the walls of Weston Hall, the main entrance to the AGO. South American composer Claudio Baroni has written an original score for this event, to be performed by two trumpet and two percussion musicians, as well as the painter-shooters whose firing guns also function as instruments. The performance will be documented in real time by on-site journalists, including Peter Goddard of the Toronto Star whose text will be simultaneously projected on a screen for the audience to witness.

CURATING NOW: An Informal Report

“…Este trabajo es una colaboración entre el compositor Claudio Baroni y el autor de estas lineas. Pulsaciones puede verse como una pintura impresionista tridimensional en todas direcciones, ejecutada por músicos y un peloton de tiradores de “paintball”. Como el interior de una maquina impresora interpretada como evento gestural comunal.

Tanto los musicos como los tiradores se guian por un pentagrama o mapa visual que les informa cuando y donde disparar los colores o notas

La obra no se reduce a su resultado residual en las paredes si no que son los 20 minutos atmosfericos de accion conjunta entre sonido y pintura. La percusion y los disparos de color producen una atmosfera densa de coaccion pictorico musical. Pulsacion, Pixel, ataque, ritmo, duracion y marcas en mutua relacion…”
