Infinite Opera

Barber Home – 30 April

In March we had the pleasure of hosting an event, Nocturnes: Ethereal Science / Constructing Beauty, exploring Cornwall as Crucible.

For this we commissioned Infinite Opera to make a response to the Barber’s recently acquired Constructivist sculpture, Linear Construction in Space No. 1 (1942 – 43), by the Russian artist Naum Gabo. It was a beautiful evening in which we celebrated music and art in the galleries.

Barber Home asked Infinite Opera to look back on their performance and share with us their thoughts on how they composed, researched and reflected on this event.
