GIOVANNI LAMI > Attraction. Repulsion. Reversion.

Giovanni Lami immerses himself in the phenomenon of magnetism with unrestrained curiosity and regularly wrestles surprising insights out of it. Lami comes from Ravenna, Italy, and in our current era of hyperspecialization, he can truly be called a universal scholar. His qualifications range from photography and visual arts to a PhD in food technology all the way to a wide range of professional experience, including as a UNESCO employee in Ethiopia. All this has sharpened his analytical view, which he has focussed for some time now on the potential of sound. In his performances, he manipulates in real time the sounds that are buried within the metal oxide layers of magnetic tape a million times over and can be teased out time and time again.
