PERTE DE SIGNAL presents artworks by Sofian Audry, Stephanie Castonguay, Claudette Lemay and Samuel St-Aubin as part of the exhibition Re-encodings at the Centre d’exposition Léo-Ayotte from Mai 28 to September 7 in Shawinigan
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: interactive electronic modules evoke strange birds, a mechanical system of wooden gears recreates the twittering of sparrows, and human voices do some translation exercises. 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.
The artists presented are members of PERTE DE SIGNAL, a center of production, research and development in Digital Art that advocates an experiential approach to its dissemination projects and seeks to rethink their presentation modes.
