Visual artist Angela Bulloch and composer and musician David Grubbs present their newest collaboration The Wired Salutation. Bulloch sets into motion the process by which images and ideas degrade while expanding to encompass video, live performance, and a composition for theatre lighting, taking the audience on a trip inside the image. David Grubbs stresses and strains an initially coherent piece of music until its constituent parts agree to peacefully disassemble. The live musical component is undertaken by a group featuring Grubbs (electric guitar and voice) and Italian musicians Andrea Belfi (drums and electronics) and Stefano Pilia (electric guitar).

Angela Bulloch's conceptually rigorous works deal with systems and structures that engage the expectations of her audience. Her sculptures often incorporate light, sound or text that address issues of authorship and aspects of temporality. She played bass guitar with the band Big Bottom. New works by the artist will be presented in the solo show Space Fiction Object at Galerie Eva Presenhuber (20.02.-02.04.2016).

David Grubbs is known for his participation in Gastr del Sol and the Red Krayola, as well as for his cross-disciplinary collaborations with Susan Howe and Anthony McCall. He is the author of the forthcoming book Records Ruin the Landscape: John Cage, The Sixties, and Sound Recording.
