About the exposition:

 

J’entends les trains depuis toujours / I keep hearing the trains for ever, is a three-part video exhibition by French artist Tania Mouraud. The project, presented by the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA), will be on display in April and May 2011 and is curated by Marie-Claire Groeninck and Jean-Michel Rabaté. The three exhibitions are being presented by the Philadelphia Art Alliance, Slought Foundation and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.

The exhibition J’entends les trains depuis toujours concentrates on Tania Mouraud’s videos and video installations, a medium that she has tackled for the last decade. These pieces further address the sensory concerns she began to explore in the earlier stages of her career. The choreography of the moving images and the sound composition pit their strength against the walls. The viewer’s perception is dissected into the volume of the exhibition space, as the borderline between figuration and abstraction is at stake.
