Last few days. DONT MISS!

The Barbican The Curve

Tickets: Free admission
Times: Open daily 11am-8pm
Open late every Thu until 10pm

Trained as a musician and composer, French artist Cleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways. His installation for The Curve will take the form of a walk-though 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.

This gateway installation is as uplifting as it is entertaining Time Out****
