Project Description

Daniel González, Disco Le Corbusier, 2010, Arte Fiera OFF

Rizoma, Bologna in collaboration with Cabaret Voltaire

Cabaret Voltaire is pleased to present Disco Le Corbusier, a site specific project by Daniel González for the opening of Rizoma space in Bologna, during Arte Fiera 2010.
After the surprising discovery of sketches and drawings by renowned architect Le Corbusier in the cellars of Unité d’Habitation in Marseille, Argentine artist Daniel González opens a new road into the typological research on this eminent Swiss architect.
The contents of these unearthed drawings show Le Corbusier’s startling and visionary intuition; a project that makes him the forerunner of the modern disco.
Like an archeologist of Le Corbusier’s memory, Daniel González creates the archetype of an architectural fable as a place to live magical experiences. For the opening of Rizoma space in the historical centre of Bologna, the artist creates a visionarry gate and works in Mylar and audio-rhythmical lights that blend architecture with the social needs of the average man, pushing the boundaries of Modernism to a territory of thoughts, emotions and lightness. The artist presents a surreal memory of a project that the architect never realized.
