Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller The Paradise Institute A unique sound experience

28 Jun 2002 - ?

Last year Janet Cardiff's unique sound sculpture, Forty-Part Motet, earned her the National Gallery of Canada's Millennium Prize. Cardiff returns to the National Gallery this year with the multimedia installation she created with her husband, George Bures Miller, which received international recognition at the 2001 Venice Biennale and was awarded one of the jury's Special Prizes. Janet Cardiff, George Bures Miller and the National Gallery of Canada invite visitors to experience The Paradise Institute from June 28 to September 2, 2002. Over the past fifteen years, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have created, separately and together, sound pieces and visual installations of increasing sophistication that change the way we relate to our immediate surroundings. Their characteristic, disturbing manipula-tions of reality in personalized spaces are rapidly earning these two artists a significant reputation both in and outside the arts community.
