“Spoon” Clarissa Baumann

The fruition of a collaboration between the artist Clarissa Baumann, the composer Olavo Vianna and the cellist Louise Leverd, Cuillère (‘Spoon’) is the gestural and sonic activation of the work of the same name produced by Clarissa Baumann in 2015, during her residency with the goldsmiths of the Puiforcat workshop.

While thinking through the metamorphosis of materials, language and gestures, the three artists are joining together for the exhibition “Les Mains sans sommeil”, so as to find a shared vocabulary around this work. By exchanging a score of actions and sounds, the production process of the work is evoked, through performances, in the form of an archive and a memory in constant reconstruction.
