Activating Rashid Johnson’s installation “Antoine’s Organ”

Music in the atrium

Within the scope of the exhibition Garden of Earthly Delights, Rashid Johnson’s monumental installation Antoine’s Organ in the atrium is acoustically activated every Saturday by varying musicians.

In his installation Antoine’s Organ, Rashid Johnson has organised a multitude of objects and plants in a grid-like structure to form a lush ecosystem. In its interior the plant island houses a piano; through the music the installation becomes both organ and organism. The result is a living garden that can be read as a poetic image of a world in which historical developments and their artefacts are constantly reappraised.
