Glenn Kaino’s “The Internationale” at Art Basel Miami Beach

Dec. 11, 2015

Featured in the Art Kabinett sector, Glenn Kaino’s enchanting installation The Internationale (2015) at Kavi Gupta’s booth drew inspiration from 19th century automaton Pierrot and the moon, a sculpture of a clown-like figure sitting on the tip of a crescent moon and serenading it with music while it moved its head and the moon moved its eye. For Kaino’s iteration, the moon sings a French socialist song in a new dialect he has created. Step inside this darkened room at the fair and you’ll be transported.
