SUNG FROM THE MOUTH OF THE CUMAE

September 24, 2015 - January 1, 2016


This immersive fibre, ceramic and sound installation references the Cumean Sibyl, a Greek oracle who was said to have sung prophecies from the mouth of a cave. Using destructive processes on woven textiles, Grisey evokes the effects of time and decay on landscape, history and mythology.
