STRANDGUT & BLUMEN
by Dimitri de Perrot
Museum Tingeuly Basel, 2017
This interactive sound and space installation stages the large hall of the Museum Tinguely Basel as the backdrop of an imaginary play. Sounds and noises specially recorded in the Museum populate the space with new protagonists and merge into an overall composition in which Tinguely's huge Méta-Harmonie machines play an active role.
The floor of Strandgut & Blumen is a collage of elements recycled from earlier exhibition projects at the Museum Tinguely. Like flowers, the spherical loudspeakers grow from them, repeatedly enveloping this island landscape in a carpet of sound. The initial spark for the installation came from the theatre piece MYOUSIC by Dimitri de Perrot.
