Sophie Bélair Clément (qc/ca)
Choir piece for 24 voices attuned to the spectrum of frequencies of a sodium lamp powered by 60 hertz

Sound installation, 2008

One method of unmasking delusions and getting a trustworthy grip on reality is to mimic the world. For her work Sophie Bélair Clément analysed the acoustic frequency spectrum of the low humming of neon lamps and subsequently commissioned a choir to perform and sing this sound.

This project is presented in cooperation with the Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin and Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

About the artist

Sophie Bélair Clément is interested in exhibition circumstances, in information obtained in the course of the documentation process and in the dissonances that derive from attempts at recreations. Her performances and installations, contextually developed in collaboration with cultural workers and musicians, suggest sustained attention to the immediate and mediated space. Bélair Clément lives in Montreal, Canada. In 2010 she is artist in residence at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin.
