Witness a field of sound, light and motion. Human movement on a grand cosmic scale.

PENDULUM

A pendulum’s graceful arc—the simple swing of a weight on its tether—contains centuries of scientific discovery. It’s a measure of time, gravity, earthquakes and music.

PENDULUM is an expansive performance installation created by percussive artist Matthias Schack-Arnott and acclaimed Australian choreographer Lucy Guerin. On an upper floor of the National Gallery of Victoria, dancers perform with dozens of suspended bells—each of which tolls, pulses and hums as it swings through space in unison with the dancers’ movements.

This immersive and hypnotic work places the human body in a state of flux, increasingly in command of, but still beholden to, the ebb and flow of time.
