An installation by Chantale Laplante

Chantale Laplante’s sound installation Nothing Specific is set in the Goethe-Institut’s library, creating unexpected sonic encounters while inviting the public to come closer to the documents, to hold and consult them.Although we usually go to the library with a specific idea in mind, there are times when we wander about, scanning the shelves, not exactly knowing what there is to discover.The sound installation Nothing Specific explores these random encounters, when we suddenly access an unknown subject, where the document, a space of knowledge, is transformed into a small sonic space gradually opening up as we approach.
