Set in the mountainous region of Gstaad, Switzerland, the exhibition "Elevation 1049: Avalanche" showcases the alpine landscape with site-specific sculpture, performance, video, and sound installations. Douglas Gordon, with French artist Morgane Tschiember, contributed with As close as you can for as long as it lasts. Originating as a live performance, Tschiember built a fire—the only thing that can help you survive in this harsh environment—and Gordon responded by installing a sound piece based on our primal fears—unknown animals, the dark—driving us towards Tschiember's fire.
Here, we see a clip of the video documentation of this call and response, which took place on Friday, February 3, from 5–7PM CET.
