Trained as a musician and composer, French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways. His installation for The Curve takes the form of a walkthrough aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other instruments and objects. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.
