Nico Vascellari's work focuses on the interaction between the contemporary visual and musical cultural scenes, highlighting the more instinctive, gut-level side of art. Produced for the Venice Biennale in 2007, Revenge is an art project consisting of a huge installation, namely a wall of burnt wood seven metres high, packed with amplifiers that echo the sounds in the room using the feedback process, and a performance in the course of which Vascellari stages a deafening and madcap concert, accompanied by other performers and assisted on the mixer by the musician John Wiese. The work is a tribute to the noise punk underground scene – of which the artist is a member in his role as front-man with the With Love group – and literally represents the revenge of an artistic scene that is generally excluded by all the institutional showcases. The video, projected onto a screen made of burnt wood, testifies to the anger and invasive power of that revenge.
