** Private edition, only a handful available. ** Man Leaving Harbour On a Ship (In a Room) is the title of a sound installation (for record player, vinyl record, speakers, found photograph, steel wires) by Vittorio Santoro to be presented in June 2010 at La BF15 Contemporary Art Space in Lyon. For the art installation of this sound piece, side A of the LP record (titled 'Commencement') is played over and over for a whole day. The organizers will take care that the side B (titled 'Conclusion') is played back only the next day. In 'Commencement' the French sound poet, artist and composer Franck Leibovici reads a fragment from the article Das Narrenschiff als Aufklaerer by Gerhard Stadelmaier, published on January 18th, 2009 on the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. 'Conclusion' features a reading by the well-known French artist Pierre Leguillon. Recorded in Paris in March and April 2010, conceived and edited by Vittorio Santoro. The silences at the beginning and at the end of each side are integral parts of the sound work. The silence had been recorded in Paris in the night between April 8th and 9th, 2010. Edition limited to 125 numbered copies. The first 5 copies (numbered 1/125 to 5/125) are reserved for the 5 installation pieces, while the remaining 120 copies have been produced for the private use of the artists. Only a handful of copies available for private distribution through the Alga Marghen network.
