In the picturesque, serene Swiss Alps, Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember’s As close as you can for as long as it lasts is a temporary art installation produced for the biennial event Elevation 1049, supported by the LUMA Foundation. Using fire, smoke, and sound, the piece is a call-and-response between two artists, a vague allusion to the regional tradition of yodeling. Tschiember’s circular fire works with Gordon’s installed sound piece, which is based on our primal fears of unforeseen animals and the dark, under the narrative of a lonely traveler being lured through the woods surrounding Gstaad, by the reassuring smoke and warm fire, as well as the potential of companionship in this setting.

As close as you can for as long as it lasts is on view as a part of Elevation 1049 through March 19, 2017.
