Mechanical Universe: Nocturne
Mary Sherman • USA
Yannick Franck • Belgium

Mechanical Universe: Nocturne was finished while Sherman was a resident at the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, conducting a workshop on collaborative art. About the piece, she says, “I took the idea of a nocturne and used a limited palette of silvers and grey to suggest Whistler’s famous twilight images and his equal interest in the abstract qualities of limited tones. These formal effects have been channeled via Mondrian to create an abstracted choreography between the moving paintings in order to echo the eerie sense of longing in the sounds contributed by the Belgian sound artist Yannick Franck.” This project, in part, is sponsored by the Fulbright Senior Specialist Program and the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts' Artist-in-Residence program.
