Red River Valley, 2013

Installation

This work examines sound’s capacity to organize itself through objects with sculptural qualities while at once proposing an analogy between the geophysical and historical context of Gijón.This set of pieces uncovers a sentient idea of the rugged Atlantic coastline. The crossing by boat between Nantes and Gijón is thus transformed into an evocative form suffused with a phantasmagorical presence. The idea of translation is incarnated in the middle of this real displacement between two points, a western fiction as a way of revisiting its myths and its present. A bridge orchestrated with a song called Red River Valley which Woody Guthrie versioned to speak about the International Brigades.
