Bruno Billio Installation
On September 4th, 2016, right after ArtYard’s Hatching, we opened Bruno Billio’s Tri-Mirror Sculpture in our main gallery as part of our inauguration. The installation is an interactive artwork consisting of a maze of ten eight-foot-tall mirrored pillars. A parade of birds from our egg hatching walked through the maze and led the crowd behind them.
In keeping with Bruno’s invitation to find different means of activating the sensory dislocation of the piece, we added inverted text to the floor and invited participants to consider points of view and differences in perception. The Tri-Mirrors provoked a wide range of responses, from paralyzed self-consciousness to joyful hide-and-seek improvisations.
