Stéphane Cauchy – Cascade

July 9, 2011

Last night I popped down to Fabrica for the private view of Stéphane Cauchy’s exhibition, Cascade. The piece is an installation of suspended buckets, gradually filling up with a constant trickle of water until the final point comes, and the bucket tips into a large pool beneath.

Seeing this piece in the dimly lit evening was just magical; there was a presence and importance about the work, almost as though it were performance art. As each bucket finally empties and the pulley system drags the bucket to a different level, you eagerly await the next bucket to tip.

The cycle which the mechanism takes is seemingly endless, and it is this cycle which I find so interesting; it isn’t quick but at the same time it is always subtly moving and working together. My work has always centered around the part which the audience play in the work; their connection to the piece, what they take from it and what they understand about it. This is essentially why I find this piece so interesting; the connection between the constant movement of life, the liquid connections which our bodies make everyday to keep moving.
