TRANSHUMANCE


On show until january 5th


Visitors emerge from Terminal 1 into a tunnel of light formed by eight 4x4-metre illuminated arches evoking mountain peaks. The arches change colour in time with Pierre Marbaix’s downtempo score interrupted by peals of cowbells and footsteps in the snow, a reminder of the nearby Alps. The stylised mountain range flicks from glacial whites and blues to warmer shades of red, purple and orange. The title of the artwork - Transhumance - is a reference to seasonal travel, the time-old tradition of moving livestock up or down the mountains to graze.
