NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA

Céleste Boursier- Mougenot:

Clinamen

Céleste Boursier-Mougenot: clinamen build for the National Gallery of Victoria, 2013. One hundred and more white porcelain bowls float on the surface of an expansive, intensely blue pool. The water is heated to optimise the porcelain’s acoustic resonance. Swept along by submarine currents, the floating crockery circulates gently, colliding as percussive instruments which create a resonant, chiming soundscape.
