we want to update you on our activities and give you official communication of the temporary interruption of the Studio Programme that, every year at this time, has been taking place in CRIPTA747's spaces in Turin.
At the core of our work and of the support we want to give to artist's research are openness, close relationships with artists and an intense contact with our territory and its people, through the cultural and productive realities that have always represented it.
As we currently lack these conditions we will not be able to offer artists the necessary support to best develop their projects and, following in-depth evaluations, we have decided to postpone the Studio Programme to a date that is yet to be decided.
We want to thank all who have participated to the open call and, in particular, those who were selected for this edition: Pietro Bonfanti (IT), Hugo de Almeida Pinho& Sara Castelo Branco (PT), Will Handley (NZ), Kornel Janczy (PL), Donglai Meng (CN), MRZB (IT), Federico Pozuelo (ES), Ian Skirvin (NL) and Alan Stefanato (IT).With them, we will be using these days of protracted waiting to start working together and build the foundations of our collaboration.
We hope everything will soon go back to normal and we cannot wait to see you again.
All our very best,Alexandro Tripodi, Elisa Troiano, Marianna Orlotti, Renato Leotta
vi scriviamo per aggiornarvi rispetto alle nostre attività e per comunicare la sospensione temporanea del programma di studi, previsto come ogni anno in questo periodo negli spazi di CRIPTA747 a Torino.
Lo spirito di apertura, il rapporto di vicinanza con gli artisti, lo stretto contatto con il territorio, le persone e le realtà culturali e produttive che lo rappresentano sono alla base del nostro lavoro e del sostegno che dedichiamo alla ricerca artistica. Venendo meno questi presupposti non possiamo offrire agli artisti il supporto necessario per poter sviluppare al meglio i loro progetti e, sulla base di queste valutazioni, abbiamo deciso di posticipare lo Studio Programme a data ancora da definire.
Vogliamo ringraziare tutti coloro che hanno partecipato all'open call e in particolare quelli che sono stati selezionati per questa edizione: Pietro Bonfanti (IT), Hugo de Almeida Pinho & Sara Castelo Branco (PT), Will Handley (NZ), Kornel Janczy (PL), Donglai Meng (CN), MRZB (IT), Federico Pozuelo (ES), Ian Skirvin (NL) e Alan Stefanato (IT). Con loro stiamo approfittando di questi giorni di attesa per iniziare a lavorare insieme e porre le basi della nostra collaborazione.
Ci auguriamo che la situazione torni presto alla normalità e non vediamo l'ora di incontrarvi di nuovo.
Un caro saluto,Alexandro Tripodi, Elisa Troiano, Marianna Orlotti, Renato Leotta
Cripta747 is delighted to host In the spirit of being with, a group show curated by Lisa Andreani and Sonia D'Alto.
In the spirit of being with is a soft deviation from the present time, a decoy where the future acts backwards and the past can’t keep still in its grave. Linear narration melts into the material production process, something weird, almost carnival-like confirms the idea of progress as a mirage.
On the occasion of the first event of our 2020, we invite you to a listening session made of four performances.
Driven by the various attitudes of the artists involved, "KlammKlang Exports" try to stimulate our deepest feelings, exploring the territories included between dream and reality thanks to the use of different tools and different languages.
Amphibia and CRIPTA747 invite you to the presentation of the book "È amore. o è follia? Cocoricò 1991–1992" by Jacopo Lega - Amphibia. The publication wants to pay tribute to a two years long moment, captured through lights and memories of the same protagonists who have contributed to making the Cocoricò Club a free zone able to explore the most diverse forms of entertainment and the innermost manifestations of being.
The event will host a conversation between Ferruccio Belmonte and Roberto Spallacci, moderated by Riccardo Ramello - Club Futuro; together with an exhibition of the original flyers from Ferruccio Belmonte archive.
"Di notte la musica e le stelle sono l'energia vitale di una civiltà che venera un prezioso diamante, di una città costruita sotto una piramide di cristallo, luogo di meraviglia e di paradisiache sensazioni. Fuori dal tempo come in un sogno.”
We are happy to present - together with SØVN and Studio 23.56 - A voice is just a familiar noise.
Official launch of the art book produced by Studio 23.56 at Archivio Tipografico. The book contains images, texts and a cassette with the traces used for the "Sinfonia Meccanica" audiovisual installation, presented on 11 September 2019 during the Graphic Days.

Cripta747, Archive Books and the German Pavilion would like to invite you to a presentation and discussion of the publication “Ankersentrum (surviving in the ruinous ruin)”.

Meet us over for the Open Studio of the third edition of Cripta747 Residency Programme with the works by Lee Fraser and Hilary Galbreaith.
Wednesday 30th of October from 5pm CRIPTA747, Via Quittengo 41/B, Torino.7pm ---> Performance. Hilary Galbreaith with Pietra Tonale.
Trained as a composer at Dartington College of Arts in UK with Frank Denyer, Lee Fraser went on to study electroacoustic music at MA level with Denis Smalley, at City University London and then at the University of Manchester where he got a Phd in electroacoustic composition. His recent work is characterised by its concern with synthesised sound objects and complex auditory experiences, drawing from his interest in digital synthesis, psychoacoustics and acousmatic theory. In his pieces Fraser explores the idea of liminality, working with physical models of recognisable sounds and stretching characteristic features of those sounds to the limit of recognisability.
Having grown up between Southern California and Virginia, Hilary Galbreaith's childhood and adolescence was marked by the DIY and “health” culture of California, the San Diego punk scene, traditional crafts from the American South, and the trompe-l'œil worlds of Disneyland and Hollywood. She draws inspiration from a wide variety of sources: Youtube tutorials and DIY sites, the “hobby” section of arts and crafts stores, post-punk music, bizarre store window displays, comics, medieval frescos, traditional crafts and costumes, B-movies and horror films, and satirical science fiction. Galbreaith creates playfully dark, comedic fictions that address the 21st century body, the way it lives with the ambivalences and contradictions of everyday technologies such as screens, social networks, and digitalized bureaucracy.

We are glad to announce the release of a new section of the Instudio archive: a series of video documents that follows the artists’ research hosted by CRIPTA747 through our Studio Programme.
Thanks to this project, Instudio had the chance to experiment out of its usual format, in order to investigate the relationship developed between the artists and the studio during a temporary residency.
The first three videos document the first edition of the CRIPTA747 Studio Programme in 2017, hoping to testify the exchanges, the creative instability and discoveries on the field that come out from the necessity of building a personal work space inside a shared studio plunged in a new city.
GO TO THE VIDEO!

A community of calendars of buds and sparrows needs a post-box. The box or equivalent object will be installed in the smallest possible to buy piece of land in Europe and will function as an official address and home of the community. As a call to relate practical and possible meanings, the call to make a post-box is an invitation to create a sculpture.
I invite you--to make a sculpture
Which will be a measure of a language
Before it is used as an organic and medical
Equivalence of truth
I invite you--to build a house
In the smallest piece of land,
Impossible to buy in Europe
No bigger than a post box would need,
Perhaps up to 0,2 - 0,5 m²?
From the perspective of status quo
And critical legal theory
The sculpture in the smallest piece of land
Will be a home and address
Of a community of calendars of buds
You are now invited to make a sculpture.
Take a note as a line,
The one which would vertically support
Climbing of the weak-stemmed poem
In the making of a legal
Send your sketch of the post-box to email@example.com
A community of calendars of buds and sparrows is a working project, presented by Auridas Gajauskas during his participation at Cripta747 studio program. The project is devoted to transformations of the ethical lows and legal systems from the inside of the language, which produces the planetary (one we live in) vision. Life of the community, also simply called as “A community of calendars”, will be concentrated solely on reflections of changes, consequences and impacts of the non-human nature and its activities.
The second Meet & Crit event will take place on April 17th at the CampoBase spaces where two of the participants selected for CRIPTA747's Studio Program, will present their work. During the event, the artist Chris Rocchegiani and the curator Auridas Gajauskas will share their practice with the public.

Through a series of instructions concerning the challenge to run on the water from different perspectives and multidisciplinary fields, the book is the very basis for a broader discussion about the challenges of transforming anything that appears impossible to accomplish by human beings into something feasible, just by shifting the point of view. When, how and in what way is the image of walking on water in different religions used and expressed at the theological level? What animal species are able to perform this action and in which particular conditions are they forced to do it? What are the physical forces put in place and what are the prerequisites that would allow a person to run on water?
Living today seems to be defined by a constant state of alert and anxiety. Our phones interrupt us with minute-by-minute announcements of bad news, while totalitarian governments weaponize social media feeds to turn public discourse into a site of frenzy and panic. As a growing number of people fall to extremist, reactionary rhetoric, the idea of countering racism and xenophobia with facts or the "truth" seems increasingly useless. Just Say "No" will contextualize our present crisis of discourse by looking at a variety of writers who have sought to examine the ways that language and speech becomes co-opted and manipulated by oppressive regimes.
“Molto spesso nelle opere di Riccardo emerge quest’ombra che è inevitabile all’interno degli esseri umani. E’ come se piegasse questa tradizione fatta di positività in qualcosa di estremamente personale, pervertendola, ovvero mandandola per un altro “verso”, quello storto, diverso dal proprio. Talvolta addirittura è possibile trovare un dettaglio oscuro, in- quietante, cattivo, o legato a una dimensione di pericolo, profondamente disturbante, nonostante l’aspetto superficiale delle sue opere sia spesso mascherato da colori e da un’atmosfera tutto sommato allegra o per lo meno neutra.”Antonio Grulli
“Ritorniamo all’“autoritratto su strati”, melanconico e privo di retorica non ci risponde. Ma essendo fatto su immagine e somiglianza dell’uguale non manca di un tratto sentimentale. L’invito è a vivere con gli occhi aperti, di vedere l’utopia rovesciata per quello che è: un altro degli innumerevoli test.”Lisa Andreani
Cripta747 is delight to present the results of the on going researches developed by the artists Andrew Wagner (New York, 1992) and Gernot Wieland (Horn, 1968) during their time in residence over the past two months.Their investigations have brought them throughout some important institutions, museums, archives and libraries of Turin as, among others, the Lombroso’s Archive located in the same name university’s museum, where both the artists have been able to study some handwritten notes and sketches, a selection of photos and unofficial documents. Then the Library of the Gramsci Institute and the historical complex of the former psychiatric hospital right outside of town, in Collegno. They have also had the opportunity to confront each other and with local and international scholars, curators, artists and editors. Following these encounters their research path has taken on new directions and it has been enriched by reflections and intuitions.
