Kjersti G Andvig art contemporain Bruxelles

The work is a sound sculpture, which is part of a larger project exploring the musicality of the Qur'an. The sound resonating through the stones is a 21 minutes cello interpretation of a recitation by Ahma Al Ajmy, of sura 23 -The Believers. The sculpture is shaped like a cairn and the island is only accessible during ebb.
