From secret to sacred between yesterday and today.

Hildegard Von Bingen (1098 – 1179) / Zad Moultaka (1967-)

Hildegard’s ecstatic song stimulates the language of today. Zad Moultaka inlays the very depths of his cultural inheritance with flashes of light, diamonds, mortar fire and passages of sound-bearing light. Linking these pieces together, crossing the layers of memory and of time as one crosses walls, he cuts a path into our imaginations.
