Anri Sala. Time no Longer. Bourse de Commerce
Anri Sala explores time and the limits between sound and image. The Albanian artist’s drawings, sculptures and videos, which are often in a documentary vein, question today’s world with a unique approach.
Sala likes to immerse viewers in melancholic worlds where music plays a key role. He depicts buildings undergoing rehabilitation as the raw material of ghostly urban moods where the supernatural always looms. Sala analyses the relationship to the city. “I like placing an idea, a space, under the influence of the world, to ‘put them on the same wavelength’ by way of sound and music, and get them vibrating together,” he says. “I try to make architecture play the same way an instrument does.”
