Galaxy Print, 2012
Scenography of a performance by Fanette Mellier
Confetti has an eventful Franco-Italian history: although harmless, its use, throughout history, has been severely restricted, sometimes forbidden. On the occasion of an exhibition of the work of the residents of the Villa Medici, Fanette Mellier created oversized confetti based on the planets of the solar system.
The scenographic device, conceived by Olivier Vadrot, consisted of shooting large white balloons inflated with helium with a rifle, thus projecting the confetti into the air. This festive and ephemeral printed galaxy was launched during the concert of Andrew Sharpley, who played a music conceived from printing sounds.
