OttO, an exhibition of works by multidisciplinary artist Laurent Grasso at Perrotin, Paris, explores sacred spaces, mythologies and scientific theories through video, sculpture, painting and installation.
Grasso’s eponymous film is locus of the show. The piece represents the immaterial through hypnotic forms, looking to visualise the unseen forces that occupy the landscape of Yuendumu in Central Australia.
Captured by thermic, hyperspectral cameras and drones, it offers an encounter between cutting-edge video technology and timeless geology. As the artist notes: “I wanted to make a film that visualizes the radiation of these sacred spaces.”
From 6 September. Find out more here.
