JULIEN CHAMPAGNE: PIECES FOR INSTRUMENTS

JULIEN CHAMPAGNE: PIECES FOR INSTRUMENTS

Information on the activity

November 10, 2022 to December 17, 2022

From November 10 to December 17, 2022.

"Pieces for instruments" is a video installation articulated around the meeting of sound and landscape. In its three videos, the artist strolls through some breathtaking natural landscapes while pulling musical instruments behind him. Dragged along the ground, the instruments emit sounds that, together, create the soundtrack for the piece.

How does the landscape influence our auditory and musical imagination? What instruments, what rhythms, and what melodies is a given landscape likely to suggest? By what means can a forest floor, a mountain, or a beach play the part of a musical score? The gallery becomes a space of contemplation in which these questions intersect.

Presented in collaboration with Vidéographe.
