Blue skies becoming almost black, score for cello
This score transforms the CACC into a space for exhibition as well as production and invites outside figures to bring this infinite artwork to life with the artists. At the invitation of the duo Petra Koehle and Nicolas Vermot-Petit-Outhenin, the cellist Deborah Walker offers a musical interpretation of their photographic work on the occasion of two performances that open and conclude the exhibition.
