An Artistic Journey At Submarine Wharf
Paris-Based Artist Sarkis is Opening Hıs Gıant Installatıon, Ballads, At Rotterdam’s Submarıne Wharf On June 2.
Known for his installations that combine personal and social history in found objects, Sarkis is taking visitors on an imaginary and spiritual journey in an installation covering 5,000 square meters at Rotterdam’s docklands. Background music for the project, which includes light, music, videos, sculptures, carillons and a library, is composer John Cage’s Litany for the Whale, which makes a reference to the venue’s former function. Also illustrated in the installation is the relationship between space on the one hand and time and memory on the other, which are so central to the artist’s work.
Sponsors of the exhibition, organized in the 400th year of diplomatic relations between Turkey and the Netherlands, are the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and the Port of Rotterdam. Curator of the exhibition is Nicolette Gast, who also curated the exhibition, The One & The Many, which was held in the same venue in 2010. Ballads will be open to visitors through September 30.
Source Of Inspiration
Sarkis was inspired by the church interiors of 17th century Dutch painter Pieter Saenradam as he put together his exhibition.
