Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller

Fraenkel Gallery

Presenting "The Poetry Machine" and other works, by Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, featuring the pair's interactive tribute to the late Leonard Cohen. Made from a vintage organ, a collection of speakers and hundreds of fragments of Cohen's recorded verse, The Poetry Machine allows viewers to hear and play Cohen's voice and texts as a haunting musical instrument.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller :

Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller frequently collaborate on works engaging sound-Fort Mason recently played majestic host to their sound installation, "The Forty Part Motet." In the current exhibition at Fraenkel Gallery, the artists present two new installations, debuting in the U.S. for the first time, including an interactive tribute to the late Leonard Cohen.
