Period & Style
David Lang and Ian Berry discuss the ideas behind the exhibition I was a double.
I was a double brings together visual artists who, like composers, create a set of rules as a basis to make their art. In addition to visual art, the exhibition includes a soundtrack composed by David Lang. Lang asked each artist to write a sentence about their artistic practice that begins with the word "I." He then set those sentences to music, and they are streamed from 23 speakers hanging in the gallery.
