Undercurrent, Bruges

Undercurrent, Bruges, 2015

Installation for the Triennale Bruges, 2015

"The art collective HeHe drops a massive high-voltage electricity pylon into the canal at Oud Sint-Jan (Old St John’s). A crackling, flashing sculpture that draws the attention to something that - in a self-consciously medieval city like Bruges - would normally be neatly tucked away. This sight of the naked infrastructure of our electricity supply causes a ripple of shock. The ‘foreign body’ in a preserved old city tackles various other metropolitan issues such as noise, light pollution and unsustainable energy use."
