RESPONSE: ANDREAS GURSKY (MATTHEW HERBERT)
Playing with perspective
Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre
Experience the work of Andreas Gursky from a new perspective, with music by producer, writer and pioneering electronic musician Matthew Herbert. His latest London Sinfonietta commission more, more, more responds to Gursky’s Untitled XIII (2002), a fascinating and un-nerving photograph of a landfill site in Chimalhuacán, Mexico City. A comment on endless consumerism, more, more, more will be made from the contents of rubbish bins on the South Bank, and is a piece for two musicians and electronics.
This first in a series of gallery lates offers a unique experience of Gursky’s work, as the music captures the rhythm, colour and complexity of his photographs.
