In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Centre Pompidou and IRCAM, the Japanese artist and fog sculptor Fujiko Nakaya will make the Centre Pompidou disappear. Alongside Stephen O’Malley and Peter Rehberg she transforms the Piazza into an electronic stage. The three artists have worked together on several occasions, particularly on productions by Gisèle Vienne presented in the Centre Pompidou’s Grande salle. Their outdoor work in situ is an electronic scenography that, beginning with the timbre of alpenhorns, spreads out into the public space.
