World renowned artist Hiroshi Sugimoto, who splits his time between New York and Tokyo, will have a solo exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris from April 25th, 2014. Some of his most well known work includes the cover photograph for U2’s “No Line on the Horizon”.
The exhibition is titled “AUJOURD’HUI, LE MONDE EST MORT [LOST HUMAN GENETICARCHIVE]”. The artist has staged a world after human beings have ceased to exist: a personal vision of history, seen from the future. The exhibition consists of around thirty scenarios, narrated by different fictitious characters who choose to preserve (or not to preserve) their individual genetic information for the future.
For three of these scenarios, Keiichiro Shibuya, who is known for his recent Vocaloid opera “THE END”, which was performed in Tokyo and Paris in 2013, has composed music. KORG’s Acoustage virtual surround technology is used in presenting these three music pieces. Enjoy this great multi-faceted artistic experience with the latest audio technology from KORG.
