L’eau Qui Dort
Lurking deep below the surface of Ourcq Canal jettisoned objects awaited recovery. Over the years their surfaces gained the complexion of aquatic wreckage. Forty of these ghostly objects mysteriously appeared upright on the surface of the canal water, bathed in aquamarine light. Again visible, these bicycles, shopping trolleys, signs and fridges confronted their owners, demonstrating that society’s desire for the new can only be supported by rendering the old invisible. An eerie composition generated from these objects emanated from spaces around the canal to form an intricate three-dimensional soundscape.
L’eau Qui Dort was commissioned by COAL for La Villette during COP21 in Paris.
