Gallery Activation of Brève braises with artist Manon Bellet
Wed, July 24th, 2019 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
In the installation Brève braises, on view in the exhibition Bodies of Knowledge, artist Manon Bellet affixes the charred remains of burned paper upon the wall of a gallery. From these tattered remains, she creates a script or musical score that runs across an entire length of a long white wall. Created in collaboration with musicians that Bellet invites to compose an accompanying musical score, these burned fragments of paper have a graphic dynamism and rhythm that resembles that of improvisational music or impromptu speech. Over the course of her installation, she allows these papers to gradually drop to the floor, encouraged by movement of air generated by the improvisational energy of bodies and musical performances.
Musicians from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) will perform for this activation.
