|SIMULACRA is an optophysical experimental. At its heart are four LCD monitor panels, which are assembled in the form of a hollow square, and installed at eye level in the middle of the room. The ensemble appears internally gutted, overgrown and embraced. A tangle of cables and control devices pours out of the middle of the square. All around it several magnifying lenses dangle from chains. The imageless glaring ray of the monitors looks as if the images had fallen out of them. What remains is the essence of the medium: Light.
But the images are still in the screens. It requires only a small visual aid to recognise them. more
In 2016, the MAC will celebrate the 23rd year of its annual international EXIT festival a celebratory exploration of the use of avant-garde digital technologies in the arts. A curated exhibition featuring interactive, multi-media installations is at the heart of each festival, which also provides tailored visits for families, school groups and community organizations. The 2015 exhibition, co-produced with lille3000 and the Manège in Maubeuge, attracted more than 150 000 unique visitors across the three sites. Previous EXIT festival exhibitions have toured internationally in countries such as Korea, China, Belgium and Holland.
