Tomás Saraceno’s research sits at the crossroads of art, science and architecture. This Carte Blanche will be his largest project to date, bringing a selection of his major works together with ambitious new productions that will transform Palais de Tokyo into a unique sensory experience.
As in a jam session, (space) time becomes a medium in which the energetic material of the ensemble generates its form, where events extend indefinitely into the past and the future. Voices are reduced into quietude, whilst others, those less heard are magnified.Who is talking now? The exhibition works to build a sensitive infrastructure to extend our cognition on what is lying hidden in plain sight, on what is on air today, physically and virtually, from particular matter to cosmic dust, from radio frequencies to sonic pollution.
The exhibition space will resound as a not-yet-audible hymn for the illegible ties between beings, the unspeakable togetherness of earthly and cosmic phenomena, happening at the intersection of our sensorial environments, something which is impossible to describe, but maybe can be felt.
