micro silence | a visual orchestration
From July 6th to July 29th 2017
Gallery des Grands Bains Douches de la Plaine
Taking its distance from a modern world where the profusion of noise is produced by the technological development, micro silence imagines a landscape devoided of the saturation and permanent filling that surrounds us.
The Gallery des Grands Bains Douches de la Plaine has a specific acoustic. Installations are orchestrated between them, as in a musical composition. The familiar substance of the world, recorded, treated, amplified and purified, is embodied in the space. Subtle nuances and pulsations create a vibrating microcosm, made up of reliefs and echos.
Curated by Constance Meffre
