"The Great Animal Orchestra" at the Fondation Cartier, Paris
The exhibition, inspired by the work of Bernie Krause,
American musician and bioacousticien, brings together artists from around the world and invites the public to immerse themselves in an aesthetic meditation, both visual and audible around the animal world increasingly threatened. The Bernie Krause’s approach is unique. He contemplates the natural world as a poet, listening to the vocalizations of animals and musician, through his recordings, studies the scientist. Bernie Krause is well mastering the art of revealing the beauty, diversity and complexity of the language of wild animals, increasingly silenced by the din of human activities. He implores us to listen to these voices of non-human living world before a final silence falls upon them.
Until 8 January 2017. www.fondation.cartier.com
