The pluridisciplinary artist Manuel Chantre presents his new installation MEMORSION at Eastern Bloc from June 3rd to June 19th.
From June 3rd to June 19th 2010
Opening on Thursday, June 3rd, from 6 to 9 pm.
MEMORSION is a tridimensional audiovisual project by new media artist and composer Manuel Chantre known for his performances with such projects as Popcore Duo, Taxi Nouveau and his installation Dispergere Maiz exploring various forms of music, audio art, video art, computer programming and electronics. The installation is made up of twenty cloth canvases assembled to create a unique maze of video projections.
Images of urban structures, vast concrete spaces, abandoned buildings and spray-painted walls are displayed and transformed. Forgotten spaces, either out of service or altered by time, are arranged and assembled within the installation, carving out a new singular environment.
The piece offers a striking experience through its vivid use of video projections and a tension-filled musical score. The public, by moving within the environment, modifies the video content displayed: the experience becomes different from one visit to another.
MEMORSION is the second immersive audiovisual project created by Manuel Chantre. Dispergere Maiz, an installation dealing with the cultivation of corn and its associated symbolisms, was profited from a residence at the SAT during 2009 summer.
