French artist and composer Céleste Boursier-Mougenot works across disciplines and media to produce large-scale, immersive sound installations. His use of everyday objects within these environments results in non-traditional compositions defined by chance encounters and complex acoustic patterns.
This exhibition features a video of Boursier-Mougenot’s ongoing project, From Here to Ear (1999–present). Filmed in collaboration with artist Ariane Michel, the video documents Boursier-Mougenot’s transformation of a gallery space into an aviary furnished with electric Gibson guitars, basses, and amplifiers. Throughout, zebra finches perch, peck, and pluck on various instruments and musical equipment to create a living and improvisational soundscape.
