What does it mean to belong to the world?
MURAL is a multimedia investigation of the places we occupy in the world: both our domestic and intimate surroundings as well as the vast untamed spaces that extend beyond our immediate walls. The wall becomes the central image of the work – mapping, dividing or encircling a terrain – and its constituent bricks; individual pieces amassing to create a larger enclosing structure.
On entering MURAL the audience is confronted with a fragmented video wall portraying ideas of boundary, interiority and exteriority, while two separated quartets of singers will perform in parallel, surrounding the audience in sound and image. The music articulates a range of quotations ranging from essays of John Cage and poetry of Fernando Pessoa to critiques of the art of Vermeer.
Running time: 1 hour
