Anechoic wall

Anechoic Wall is a structure echoing that of anechoic chambers which stifle sound and magnetic waves. In this piece, the reflection of sound is doubled with that of light due to the structure’s glossy, black lacquer finish and its copper composition. Laurent Grasso (re)activates forms that can be identified as part of our society’s systems of control, and distorts the cinematographic techniques and conventions that shape our collective imagination. In doing so, he creates environments with strong narrative potential where universal ancestral fears mingle with threatening contemporary scientific and mythological accounts.
