DESCRIPTION

The foyer of the Berlinische Galerie will resonate for a year with the sound of an aria. Chamber Music (Vestibule) – a music installation by Ari Benjamin Meyers has been composed by the artist especially for this space. It is sung by Nicole Chevalier (soloist at the Komische Oper Berlin).

Meyers reflects on the transient moment of entering and leaving the museum, playing at the same time with the perceptions of its visitors. How far the work unfolds and whether it can be heard at all depend on the behaviour of each guest and the overall activity in the space.
