ABOUT:

In the installation Brève braises, artist Manon Bellet affixes the charred remains of burned paper on the walls of the gallery in the exhibition Bodies of Knowledge. From these tattered remains, she creates a script or musical score that runs across an entire length of a long white wall. Created in collaboration with musicians that Bellet invites to compose an accompanying musical score, these burned fragments of paper have a graphic dynamism and rhythm that resembles that of improvisational music or impromptu speech. Over the course of her installation, she allows these papers gradually drop to the floor, encouraged by movement of air generated by the improvisational energy of bodies and instruments as the move through and activate the installation.

Musician Justin Peake will participate in this activation. He is a New Orleans-based drummer, composer,  technologist, visual artist, researcher, and educator.
