Re-encodings assembles installation and videographic works that evoke the world of birds in a contemporary and experimental manner. Each in its own way, the works integrate a fragment of nature and put in perspective the gap between the real and its reproduction, the natural and the constructed. Using modern technologies, they humorously explore this fictional space, sometimes by inserting interactive electronic modules in the gallery who evoque strange birds, or by multiplying translation exercises of birdcalls with the human voice. Whether taking aural or visual form, the figure of the bird is re-encoded, reinterpreted, and simulated, becoming a poetic object that the spectator can reconsider in their own imagination.
