ADA - analog interactive installation / kinetic sculpture / post-digital drawing machine
Named after 19th century English mathematician, Ada Lovelace, ADA is a self-forming artwork and post-industrial “creature”, resembling a molecular hybrid from nano biotechnology. Filled up with helium and spiked with charcoals, the membrane-like globe floats freely in each room it is located and leave marks on the walls, ceilings and floors. It is meant to be a movement to experience visually, like a computer that generates unforeseeable output after receiving a command. > more

Mois Multi
Presented each year in February, Mois Multi is an event produced and organized by Les Productions Recto-Verso. The festival program features innovative works in the fields of multidisciplinary and electronic art. Mois Multi reflects the conceptual and technological changes that have led to unprecedented forms and practices in the “multi arts.” The uniqueness of the event stems from its interactive performances, installations, immersive environments, and works that fuse languages, materials, techniques, forms and artistic procedures of all kinds.> more

Coming together to resist, listen, reflect, play, celebrate, dream, imagine, build…
With a sense of urgency, we are fervently trying to reinvent our relationship with the world. But to do so, we must first reach out to others, to relearn how to share our time, space, territory. For this midway edition of a cycle launched in 2016, revolving around the re-enchantment of the world, I therefore wanted the social being and the notion of the footprint to be at the heart of the experience. The new artistic forms, in both their nature and processes, provide particularly fertile soil when it comes to interaction, commitment, participation. Art thus becomes an extraordinary means for us to become aware of the power of the community, of strength in numbers.
Over the course of my explorations, when thinking about re-enchantment, I quickly realized it was hard to avoid thinking about disenchantment, the former a necessary counterpart of the latter. Mois Multi 2017 is thus full of paradoxes! Contrasting reality and fiction, movement and immobility, darkness and light, domesticity and wildness, grace and violence, private and social, the selected works and fantastic journeys they offer incite us to rediscover the meaning of the word “community.” Inspired in particular by the notions of the quest, the trace and transformation, I devised a program that stresses the importance of coming together, of uniting, of showing solidarity and, above all, of the need to be together, to work together.
May the 18th Mois Multi provide you with encounters unlike any others, a place of unimagined enchantment!
