This catalogue accompanies a solo exhibition of work by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at the Museum of Contemporary Art, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, October 4–31, 2012.
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot is an internationally acclaimed French artist whose innovative work merges the realms of the musical and the visual. For this exhibition, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot presented works that go beyond his previous sound installations. Although sound is present, the resulting images are not necessarily purely sound-based. What ties all these works together are certain systems the artist sets in motion and then allows to autonomously exist and evolve.
