Hive is a site-specific sculpture and sound commission by Nancy Davidson and Lakshmi Ramgopal, two artists with distinctive practices collaborating for the first time at Krannert Art Museum. Hive features two inflatable sculptures by Davidson, each approaching twenty feet tall and lit from within, filling the portico. Ramgopal’s sound installation is housed in the same space, involving a range of vocalizations experimenting with breath—partly composed and partly randomized by a computer algorithm so that the sound never repeats.
