Gaspar Battha – Andras Nagy
For Chroniques, Hexalab invites Hungarian artists Gaspar Battha & Andras Nagy for a new two-person audiovisual creation: Parallel Waves
This monumental mapping will take shape on the 70-meter façade of the Conservatoire. It will reveal this contemporary monument built in 2013 by architect Kengo Kuma from an original and spectacular point of view, inspired by Chroniques’ 2018 theme: levitation. The title, Parallel Waves, makes a reference to the tensions induced by the phenomenon of levitation on various natural phenomena such as sound or light waves, or the physical forces created by the wind and gravity, with which the artists will play to transform and bring the façade to life.
