The Future Tense
Les Réserves du Frac Île-de-France – Fondation Fiminco
Saturday, June 19th to Sunday, June 20th 2021
The Fondation Fiminco is pleased to present The Future Tense, a sound installation by Russell Perkins, artist in residence, on 19 June at 3PM. Created specifically for the Réserves du Frac Île-de-France in Romainville, the piece will be performed for 24 hours.
The Future Tense considers grief and the management of uncertainty. The work is an application that modifies the first movement of Johannes Ockeghem’s requiem, guided by GPS data recorded across the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Artificial intelligence assists in extending the labor of mourning indefinitely, but such that the three voices of the funeral mass never reach harmonic resolution.
The Future Tense was developed in collaboration with researchers at SONY CSL Paris, with support from the European Commission’s S+T+Arts Initiative and the Fondation Fiminco.
