La Gaite Lyrique

La Gaite Lyrique, Paris – You / Me

An installation of sound and silence, darkness and light

Paris

A dark, mysterious chamber swells with a cascading musical score interspersed with randomized patterns of silence that are punctuated by a piercing red glow. The contrast between the absence of sound and the presence of crimson light is jarring, cutting through the tension between anonymity and familiarity that typically emerges during chance encounters between viewers who enter the chamber’s intimate confines.
