Ejecta is an immersive audio-visual installation which transforms the digital images of every artwork in the Sursock Museum’s permanent collection into vibrating pixel-like fragments which progress through various states; becoming volcanic expulsions of light and later cascading through the frame like water or lava. The artist opposes decay and destruction with an inverted violence, overwhelming the viewer’s senses with the weapons of art, culture, and thought.


Paired with the ceaseless flow of images is the broken, dissonant, noise of a blast which morphs into the resonance of a glass harmonica. Moultaka draws inspiration from the 17th century Leçons des ténèbres (Lessons of darkness), a polyphonic French baroque music composed by Charpentier, as well as from one of his own previous compositions, Exercice de lumières (2017). In Moultaka’s work, the clinking glass refers to the church’s stained-glass windows which give rise to a melodic and consoling hope. The installation invokes catharsis, allowing fragments and ruins to mutate into crystalline sparks. Ejecta –originally defined as volcanic ejected particles– expels the darkness, to form a crater of light.

On the outside walls of the installation, the artist invites viewers to write a sentence and participate into a communal conjuring – a performative gesture to be practiced as a healing ritual.
