Title: Shirazeh Houshiary - Breath installation Venice Biennale 2013. YouTube Video


Collection: Venice Biennale 2013 on the Web

Organization: Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute Library

Description: Youtube video. Shirazeh Houshiary presents Breath, a four channel video which was first conceived in 2003, in a remastered version and as part of a new and unique, site-specific installation. In Breath (2013), the evocative chants of Buddhist, Christian, Jewish and Islamic prayers emanate from four video screens. The sound is choreographed with images that capture the expanding and contracting breath of the vocalists. The installation is a rectangular enclosure clad in black felt, and is entered through a narrow passage leading to a dimly lit white interior. There are four screens hung at eye level, from which the chants of the different traditions rise and fall, swell and dissipate in a haunting chorus that fills the room and permeates beyond each of its walls. Where inside there is unity, outside is multiplicity. Venue: Torre di Porta Nuova, Arsenale Nord. Organization: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation
