Anri Sala – du 3 mai au 6 août 2012 par centrepompidou
Designed for the Pompidou Centre, the new installation conceived by Anri Sala is a symphony composed of objects, photographs and four new films – activated by a “time code” preset, forming a loop of one hour. The images lead the viewer in different parts of the world: Sarajevo, spoke during the siege of 1992 to 1995 (1395 Days without Red, 2011), in Berlin with the geodesic dome of Buckminster Fuller (Answer Me, 2008), Bordeaux a deserted ballroom (The Clash, 2010) to the famous site of Tlatelolco in Mexico City (Tlatelolco Clash, 2011). With an original sound spatialization through film, the artist makes the space a music box, broadcasting in turns a symphony of Tchaikovsky, a new version of Should I Stay or Should I Go by The Clash and the rhythm of ten drums (Doldrums, 2008) which come to life intermittently. The exhibition also plays with the space that visually communicates with the street and surrounding area.
Anri Sala’s exhibition runs until August 6
