Brian Eno Blends Sound and Light to Construct an Imaginary Image
The seventh chapter of the Moving Image Department deviates from its course by presenting an imaginary image created by a combination of sound and light. A legend of experimental music, Brian Eno will present his latest solo album The Ship (2016), which is simultaneously a multichannel three-dimensional sound installation.
The sound environment is created by several old speaker boxes on plinths in a softly lit room creating an impressive, yet intimate atmosphere. Eno’s “sound novel” is a free collage of stories inspired by the doom of the Titanic, the Great War, sentences randomly taken out of emails and the author’s own literary attempts.
The exhibition Moving Image Department #7: Brian Eno, The Ship, featuring Jan Nálevka can be seen and experienced from 17 March to 10 September in the Trade Fair Palace of the National Gallery, daily except Mondays from 10 am to 6 pm. The exhibition was created with the support of The Pudil Family Foundation.
The Pudil Family Foundation is an open non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the understanding and appreciation of Czech and international modern and contemporary art through the realization of innovative exhibitions, research and educational projects.
