Anri Sala: Ravel Ravel Unrave

This book is published on the occasion of the ‘Ravel Ravel Unravel’ project by Albanian-born video artist Anri Sala for the French Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale. In the work, two interpretations of Maurice Ravel’s ‘Left Hand Concerto for Piano and Orchestra’ are played alongside one another. The respective tempos of each performance were recomposed for Sala’s work, so that they continuously shift in and out of unison, disrupting the listener’s sense of space within the pavilion, which is designed as an anechoic chamber. The book includes an array of analytical texts by Christine Macel, Jean Echenoz, Dana Samuel, Peter Szendy, Laurent Pfister, Anri Sala and others.
