Sébastien Robert - The Lights Which Can Be Heard
Sébastien Robert is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher studying endangered indigenous rituals and music. He strives to translate sounds and rituals into long-lasting tangible artworks, made from materials that echo the traditions of the communities he encounters. His project for STRP, The Lights Which Can Be Heard originates in Lapland. This is the home of the Sámi, the last indigenous people in Europe, whose transhumance and associated rituals are threatened by the exploitation of rare earth minerals. According to their worldview, the northern lights and quartz crystals that are present in the soil can be heard. The minerals consist of solidified light waves that emit sound frequencies and contain the souls of their ancestors. In the new installation for STRP, light is the central focus to initiate the artistic dialogue between indigenous knowledge and technology. The project questions our relationship to our environment by looking at a more sensitive vision shared by the Sámi people.
