Tomás Saraceno @ Palais de Tokyo

Tomás Saraceno, ON AIR. Three dimensional sculptures interwoven by different spider species⁣⁣⁣.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Breathtakingly beautiful. A multi-sensorial choreography of voices belonging to both human and non-human (spiders, cosmic dust and radio waves and entities floating in the air) universes. In this work, Tomás sets the stage and invites man and nature into a dance. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ One doesn’t just see the work, one hears this work, one “participates” in the work through changing air currents and spatial vibrations associated with his/her presence. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Turn the audio on to hear the sonic waves. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Images 1-6 : Webs of At-tent(s)ion, 2018. The glorious display of silky thread woven by different spider spices.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Video 7: Sounding the Air, 2018⁣.⁣⁣⁣ Sounds are produced by the 5 threads of spider silk that drift and resonate in the air. “The Air is restless, forever in motion.”⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Video 8 : Particular Matter(s) Jam Session, 2018.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Video 9: Aerographies, 2018. ⁣ Pens suspended from balloons trace lines and marks with a black ink made of carbon collected from the polluted air of Mumbai, India. ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Video 10: Algo -R(h)i(y)thms, 2018⁣ An on-going jam session where participants are invited to pluck or slide their fingers up and down the strings. ⁣ ⁣ A powerful and absolutely mesmerising presentation.⁣⁣ On at Palais de Tokyo,Paris till Jan 6, 2019. ⁣⁣⁣ #tomássaraceno#palaisdetokyo #contemporaryart #spider
