Close to Me by Suzan Philipsz

2 June-23 September 2012. Palazzo Reale displays the suggestive sound installations by the Berlin-based Scottish artist Suzan Philipsz, winner of the 2010 Turner Prize. On occasion of the World Family Encounter Philipsz’s installations are placed between the museum’s courtyard and the Church of S. Gottardo in Corte, along a path traversed by Pope Benedict during his recent visit to Milan. Philipsz proposes her sound work, entitled Weep or Mine Eyes, inspired by a madrigal of 1959, as well as the video Susan Barbara Joan and Sarah, created with her six sisters, and a series of registrations, entitled Close to Me. Philipsz started her artistic career as a sculptor, but is famous for her sound installations, in which she records herself singing a cappella versions of songs which are replayed over a public address system in the gallery or other installation.
