Francesca Mizzoni and Roberto Paci Dalò in Residence

Jan 5 — 30, 2005



While in residence at Western Front, Italian artists Francesca Mizzoni (a.k.a FM) and Roberto Paci Dalo (a.k.a WITZ) worked on the Vancouver component of their multi-site work, WITZ FM.

Building on their collection of field recordings in Italy and abroad, the artists collected sounds and images from liminal areas in Vancouver where the city met nature; at the borderline between inside/outside. They were inspired by the novel City of Glass (1985) by Paul Auster, and the graphic novel by David Mazzucchelli and Paul Karasik after the original text.

The artists also contributed to Art’s Birthday programming that coincided during their stay. 
This residency was supported by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, in Vancouver.
