Gagosian Quarterly

douglas gordon andMorgane Tschiember

Set in the mountainous region of Gstaad, Switzerland, the exhibition Elevation 1049: Avalanche showcases the alpine landscape with site-specific sculpture, performance, video, and sound installations. Douglas Gordon, with French artist Morgane Tschiember, contributed As close as you can for as long as it lasts. The work originated as a live performance: Tschiember built a fire—the only thing that can help you survive in this harsh environment—and Gordon responded by installing a sound piece based on our primal fears—unknown animals, the dark—driving us toward Tschiember’s fire.
