Audio visual Installation
09 June - 24 July 2011
When Bernard Tschumi designed Le Fresnoy, he conceived of a building without a centre, a new structure wrapped around another already existing development. What now exists is a sense of the in-between, a place between past and present, beginning and closing conversations between different times and places.
This installation finally gives Le Fresnoy a heart, a central motif, a living breathing physical heart discovered beneath the ground. An unsettling animation can be viewed through the torn up floorboards, through a protective screen. A soundtrack of the beating heart can be heard around the space, born from the vibrations and sonic debris of the building itself.
A CD edition wasfreely available in the gallery during the show.
