In the context of the exhibition “Sous la Lune/Beneath the Moon”, the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore and Palais de Tokyo (Paris) present Performing the Moon, a special evening of live art events by Paris-based artists Hicham Berrada, Marie-Luce Nadal, and Raphaël Zarka.
Spread across outdoor locations at LASALLE College of the Arts, the events activate processes and ideas from artworks in “Sous la Lune/Beneath the Moon”.
Hicham Berrada, “Présage (Premonition)”
Chemical experiments performed by Hicham Berrada are filmed and projected live on a 4-metre wide screen. Resembling transforming clouds and organic shapes, the projections are accompanied by sound from invited sound artist Mark Wong. The performance draws on Berrada’s ongoing research into chemical processes and biological conditions.
Marie-Luce Nadal, “Cultiver la Brume (Growing Mist)”
Marie-Luce Nadal creates the illusion of mist in this new performance. The work references her research into systems that control and manipulate natural environments. Nadal’s previous projects include Fabrique de Nuages (Cloud Factory), a system that reproduces clouds, and the Fair Weather Foundation, a not-for-profit enterprise that sells rights to air in anticyclones.
“Performing the Moon” is part of Singapore Art Week (January 16–24, 2016).
