Horizon Scander Jeu
Gare du Nord | Nuit Blanche, Paris, France
Oct. 8 - Nov. 8, 2008
Tony Oursler in collaboration with Constance DeJong and Tony Conrad. Larger-than-life teenagers sing and whisper in a film made with the help of forty pupils from Grange aux Belles secondary school and projected onto the towering main facade of the Gare du Nord. Meanwhile, an acoustic installation fills the station's forecourt with the sound of muttering children and other noises straight from the artist's imagination. Working with Constance DeJong and Tony Conrad, Tony Oursler also uses the station announcement system to create an industrial opera of train whistles blowing, some recorded, some live.
