Descripción de la Exposición

Quetzal Art Center is proud to present Susan Philipsz’s site-specific sound installations Tomorrow’s Sky (2019) and Sleep Close and Fast (2019). The works have been commissioned by Cees and Inge de Bruin-Heijn to support Artangel’s Artists for Artangel fund for future projects. Over the past two decades, Turner Prize-Winning artist Susan Philipsz has explored the psychological and sculptural potential of sound. Using recordings, predominantly of her own voice, the artist creates immersive environments of architecture and song that heighten the visitor’s engagement with their surroundings while inspiring thoughtful introspection. The music Philipsz selects – which has ranged from sixteenth century ballads and Irish folk tunes to David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust – responds specifically to the space in which the work is installed. While each piece is unique, the storylines and references are often recognizable, exploring familiar themes of loss, longing, hope, and return. These universal narratives trigger personal reactions while also temporarily bridging the gaps between the individual and the collective, as well as interior and exterior spaces.
