Spore Speakers


Resin, silicone, speakers and light bulb

Variable dimensions

In 2008, Loris Gréaud, then 29, created the installation Spore Speaker as part of Once Is Always Twice, a work in three darkrooms with a floor covered by a carpet of modular, repetitive fractal-shaped patterns. It consists of cables, bulbs, speakers, resin and silicone forming a striking, indefinable whole.

Spore Speakers looks like a cross between a manufactured product and an organic structure, especially because of the dark matter that seems to drip from the lamps. It is consistent with the artist's aim, with unclassifiable works, of blurring the lines we draw between fiction and reality.

Gréaud's installation Spore Speakers, which is in the Pinault Collection, was presented during the 2009 exhibition "Un certain état du monde ?" (“A Certain State of the World?”) at the Garage Center for Contemporary Culture in Moscow.
