Silvia Bombardini reports on Codalunga and GG Allin's illustrations



Dear Shaded Viewers and Diane,


On October 28th at 9pm, in via martiri 20, Vittorio Veneto (Italy), Codalunga will be delighted to present an exhibition of GG Allin’s illustrations.

Gg Allin was the singer of several bands among which Antiseen and Murder Junkies. He grew into an american rock ‘n’ roll legend thanks to his extreme performances based on self-mutilation, defecation, sex and violence.

When he died from a heroine overdose in 1993 his body wasn’t washed and his funeral became his last memorable show.

Besides the drawings, realized by GG while in prison, the exhibition will feature the shoes he was wearing during his last detention, the portraits dedicated to him by serial killers Danny Rolling and Nicholas Claux, and a series of letter including the letter of condolence John Wayne Gacy sent to Merle Allin few days after her brother death.

On the occasion of the exhibition will be presented the third issue of Pizza Magazine, which features on the cover and in a twelve pages special “Jesus”, a project by Nico Vascellari inspired by the personalities of GG Allin and Klaus Kinski, currently exhibited at Museo Maga after having been shown at Marina Abramovic Institute in S.Francisco (august 2010) and Pinchuk Art Centre in Kiev (october 2010). During the opening it will be possible to purchase Pizza limited edition, a deluxe version of the magazine printed in fine paper with different covers, published in 100 copies numbered and signed by Nico Vascellari.

At 22:00 then, VOM GRILL will perform live again at Codalunga. Already a guest of the third edition of the Three Days Of Struggle, VOM GRILL is the solo project of Dennys Tyfus, the mind behind Ultra Eczema, one of the more active and bright european labels of the moment. From Antwerp a delirious assault of voice and magnetic tapes.

It will be possible to visit on appointment The GG Allin exhibition until November 24th.

From 3 to 6 November the exhibition will move to Turin for Artissima, in which Codalunga takes part in the Lido section curated by Christian Frosi, Renato Leotta e Diego Perrone.
