Ground Level, Federation Court
4 Aug 15 – 22 Nov 15
Renowned Mexican artist Carlos Amorales presents a dynamic, interactive sculpture as part of the NGV’s ongoing series of contemporary installations in the foyer of NGV International. Recalling the mid-century modernist forms of Alexander Calder, We’ll see how all reverberates 2012 takes the form of three suspended mobile sculptures balanced by copper Zildjian cymbals. Visitors are invited to create and perform experimental percussive compositions through musical gongs, producing sound and movement within the space. Reflecting the artist’s interest in the chance poetics of Dada and the inter-disciplinary happenings of the Fluxus movement, We’ll see how all reverberates invokes a democratic, playful and anarchic impulse, encouraging audience members to become actors and performers.
The work has been recently acquired by the NGV and travels to Australia following presentations in major exhibitions in Shanghai, New York, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates) and Mexico City.
Carlos Amorales’ We’ll see how all reverberates 2012 is presented as part of the NGV’s ongoing series of Federation Court commissions and made possible with generous support from the Loti & Victor Smorgon Fund.
