Rudy Decelière explores the capabilities of sound through installations, working both indoors and
in open space. He pays special attention to architectural elements, positioning of objects, and
natural sound landscape. During 15 years of his professional work the artist has been exploring
copper as the source of sound. Working with specifics of producing sound with copper, Rudy
Decelière draws sound into space, he visualizes the creation of sound. Swiss artist’s
installations inhabit the architectural forms, the structure of sound itself shows in them.

installation at the White House (Kyshtym town) and at the final exhibition of the Artist-in-Residence program in cooperation with Kyshtym Electrolytic Copper Plant.
