Bruno Billio & Joseph Clement | Second Floor, Room 209

The vast scale and intense scope of nature is often diminished by the complex, world created by humans. Our removal from the natural process disguises the far-reaching impacts of these actions. We are consequently transformed by and transforming nature around us with dramatic affect. The installation, Calving, Cutting, and Striking by artists Bruno Billio and Joseph Clement uses light, sound and space to create an evocative and theatrical experience that envelops the viewer. The installation delivers a powerful reflection on this relationship through the juxtaposition of the real of urban interior with the represented reality of process and nature removed from its context.
