Thank you.\n\nSala's works frequently invoke the interplay of music, history and architectural environment, whereby location and orientation are called constantly into question by the film techniques they employ.
These characteristics also come to the fore in Anri Sala’s photographs, and in Untitled halves, 2014 form themselves into an image of light that, in the reflections in the mirror ball, serves to evoke movement and music. A dynamic sense of three-dimensional space is conjured solely with the contrasts of black and white, in other words absolute darkness and the full spectrum of light.
