Laurent Grasso, SoundFossil



Paris-based Laurent Grasso was in New York for the opening of his exhibition SoundFossil at Sean Kelly Gallery (through October 23, 2010) and visited the Clocktower for a sit down with host Michael Rush. Grasso likes to really mix it up in videos, sculptures, installations, many of which are inspired by obscure scientific research like the presence of sounds from the Big Bang found infossils. His show includes a neon eclipse, appropriated paintings with wonderfully bizarre additions, and a video of a haunting trip through the woods complete with a horde of swarming bats. But it's the installation, the combination, and the conceptualization that fascinates both men here as they reach to explain and define the intangibles, perceptions, shifting elements in the work.
