Curated by Sharsten Plenge and Paul Young, it is the first US solo show by the Montreal-based artist who’s ongoing video practice generates virtual environments through analogue means. For Lieux-Dits, Ratté takes the French word for unregistered spaces, like regions or villages with no official name, to explore “the nature of the electronic image as physical space, residing in both tangible and virtual expanses.”
The site-specific installation and video environment, created by the artist working between “realms of interference”, will feature works including a sprawling room-sized four-channel installation called ‘Common Areas’, an aluminum print with video augmentation called ‘Immeuble-Villas’ as well as other things.
There will be a catalogue essay written by David Jager and a soundscape composed by ongoing collaborator Roger Tellier-Craig.
