Vitruvio Virtual Reality:
Tributo a Freak Antoni
The artwork will be available within Museo Internazionale e Biblioteca della Musica di Bologna from 4 October to 3 November 2019.
THE EXHIBITION HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTILL 12 JANUARY 2020.
Tributo a Freak Antoni, is the tribute that Vitruvio Virtual Museum made in honor of one of the most subversive and destabilizing artists in Italian music history.
The immersive virtual reality artwork is available through the Oculus Go VR headset and creates an interaction with Daniele Rossi’s sculpture. The sculpture, made in Carrara marble, portrays Freak Antoni inside a toilet equipped with rockets.
Wearing VR headset, the rockets light up and the user makes a journey in the sky above Bologna on the notes of Ludovico Einaudi and the verses of “Le onde leggero”, a delicate and surprising poetry by Antoni himself.
