With the support of the Quebec Ministry of International Relations and Francophonie, and as part of the XV Quebec-Bavaria 2018-2020 Working Group, perte de signal has developed a two-year partnership with the Lab30 organization in Augsburg (Germany) .
In this context, the center is pleased to welcome German artist Alice Strunkmann Meister for a research-creation residency followed by an open lab.
Vibrations and oscillations are a phenomenon that constantly accompanies and surrounds us. Even if we are not always aware of it. In her work “Hertz”, Alice Strunkmann-Meister uses the photographic printing technique of Cyanotype, to visualize different forms of cyclic movement. By collecting them and bringing them together through a standardized visual language, they get connected.
For her art, Alice Strunkmann Meister gets her inspiration from her interest in technology, physics, perception and nature. In her installations (sometimes interactive, sometimes kinetic) she deals with the principles that underlie the world around us. Alice was born in 1986 in Munich. In 2012 she graduated in “Art and Multimedia” at the Munich University, followed by a degree in “Interactive Media Systems” at the University of Applied Sciences Augsburg in 2017. Her work has won several awards, including the Lab30 Award and the Culture Prize of Bavaria.
perte de signal wishes to thank the Quebec Ministry of International Relations and Francophonie, the Quebec delegation in Berlin, the Quebec Council of Arts and Letters, the Montreal Arts Council, and the Canada Council for the Arts, Bayerische Staatskanzlei as well as Lab30.
