A multi-sensory exploration of light and sound.
The Store X The Vinyl Factory presents a new exhibition by UVA called Other Spaces at 180 The Strand in collaboration with the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris.
Other Spaces features three large-scale installations by the multi-disciplinary collective UVA – Our Time, The Great Animal Orchestra and Vanishing Point.
Vanishing Point is an immersive laser installation that uses perspective as a way to reshape and redefine a space. Inspired by Renaissance drawings by Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo Da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer, it features beams of white light that are projected into the space from an invisible vanishing point.
Making its UK premiere, The Great Animal Orchestra – presented in collaboration with Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris – is a soundscape of animal recordings, captured in their natural habitats around the world by seminal bioacoustician Bernie Krause. UVA have imagined an accompanying visuals featuring colourful abstract spectrogram landscapes of the environments where the animals live.
Featuring newly composed music by Mira Calix, Our Time is a site-specific evolution of the UVA’s 2013 commission for the Barbican called Momentum. The installation features kinetic structures swinging in and out of phase, while light and sound is projected throughout.
