Station to Station: A 30 Day Happenning

The Barbican is currently holding a “living exhibition” of numerous multi-media events spread over a 30 day period.  It is a fascinating project which builds on Doug Aitken’s 2013 venture Station to Station and really does offer something for everyone.

I started my visit off with Light Echoes by Aaron Koblin and Ben Tricklebank, an immersive installation of laser beams and atmospheric music, which encourages the spectator to move in time with the light.  I then sampled the delights of cactus omelette based on Ed Ruscha’s recipe whilst watching his bizarrely entertaining short film, Premium. After wandering around the gallery space, I sat down to witness Abraham Brody’s Soul Alchemy II. Brody, a classically trained violinist, encouraged interaction between members of the public and performed very emotive music whilst looking into the eyes  of any willing participant.  It was incredibly moving.
