Bruno Billio and Joseph Clement’s room, Cleaving, Cutting, and Striking is about the estranged relationship humans have with the natural world despite their vast role in using and manipulating it. In their installation, the artists will use light, sound and space to create an evocative and theatrical experience that envelops the viewer, and deliver a powerful reflection on this relationship.
