Parallel waves



Hexalab invites the Hungarian artists Gaspar Battha & Andras Nagy for an original audiovisual creation with four hands. This monumental projection takes shape on the 70 meters façade of the Conservatory of Aix-en-Provence.

It reveals this contemporary monument built in 2013 by the architect Kengo Kuma under an original and spectacular angle.

The title Parallel Waves refers to the tensions that the phenomenon of levitation creates on different natural phenomena such as sound or light waves, or the physical forces created by wind and gravity, which the artists play with to animate and transform the façade. In doing so, the artists question our perceptions of reality, often apprehended through a screen rather than through direct sensory experience.
