LABYRINTH - LES LARMES DE MINOS
Sound installation for 8 speakers, 90' (in collaboration with Jules Wysocki) - stroboscopic lights - seats
Lightbox photography, 120 x 80cm
Produced by Labanque / ADAGP
For the exhibition Intériorités, Frédéric D. Oberland surrounds the basement of Labanque art center in Béthune with a large sound installation accompanied by one of his photographs, 'Les Larmes de Minos' / 'The Tears of Minos', which refers to the myth of the Minotaur. 90 minutes of musical strolling divided into eight tableaux and spatialized on a set of eight speakers are building, according to a certain psychogeography, a labyrinthine course. We meet the ghosts of Dante Aliegheri and the Minotaur, stroboscopes and reflections on the river that leads from the known to the unknown. Immersed as if he were in the bowels of the earth, the spectator is invited to experience the murmurings of duration.
