Renaissance paintings + astrophysics with Luca Pozzi’s ‘Blazing Quasi-Stellar Object’ at CERN

, 11 April 2017

Luca Pozzi presented Blazing Quasi-Stellar Object at Geneva’s CERN on March 29, 2017.

Curated by Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, the lecture-performance was part of the program Fermi LAT (Large Area Telescope) 2017 Spring Meeting, which runs under the umbrella of the Internet Saga project at CERN.

The Fermi programme is an all-day event fostering cultural collaboration between the arts and sciences and is centred around LAT, one of the instruments used at the centre. ‘Blazing Quasi-Stellar Object’ was a multi-media performance bringing together the format of a lecture with visual accompaniments to look at the renaissance painter Tiziano’s ‘Bacco e Arianna,’ focussing on “the complex stratifications connecting this painting to the frontiers of multimessenger astrophysics.”

The artist also had a number of other interventions around the area, including a sound installation outdoors, a 3D screensaver entitled ‘The Big Jump Theory’ given to each member of the audience, and a series of ‘anodized aluminum panel’ sculptures ‘Fingers Crossed.’**
