Ron Arad has designed a curtain consisting of 5 600 silicon rods, suspended from an 18 metre diameter ring, creating a canvas for films live performance and audience interaction.
Aptly titled “Curtain Call”, this major installation can be seen at the Roundhouse in London from 9 to 29 August 2011.
Arad invited his favourite artists, musicians and friends, among them Javier Mariscal, Babis Alexiadas and students from the Royal College of Art, to design a unique work for the 360° canvas.
The setting for Curtain Call, the Roundhouse Main Space, has over the years displayed a number of influential art works. Combining experimental design with live performance, Arad’s project brings a new physical scale and creative scope to the space.
Curtain Call at the Roundhouse is part of Bloomberg Summer, which also includes various art and music events.
