Le Cube

Christian Delécluse’s Inner Space

21 January 2013

One of our quickies… and this is a highly recommended one for next Thursday & Friday @ the nearly-Parisian digital arts venue Le Cube.

For a couple of days Christian Delécluse’s installation “Inner Space” will be hosted at one of Le Cube’s many rooms willing to challenge us on the process of how we build our perceptions, for that matter he’s built this ever-changing space within a spacious 12 squared meter – room.

This expert of controversial sensitive experiences will be presenting the new version of his work (presented last year @ Montreal’s BIAN & co-produced by Arcadi & Le Cube) which proposes a beam-lights installation that may generate a hypnotic trance…. an uncertain experience that will be presented by the artist himself this Thursday @ 19h. More info of the event this way.

Drive to Abstraction

Christobal de Oliveira did not set himself an easy task when he decided to present a “polymorphous universe at the crossroads of digital and more traditional techniques.” Instead of taking on the whole of Creation one technique at a time, in his debut exhibition @ Le Cube, the artist uses a range of media to expose his concept under different conditions.

Exhibition space Le Cube, built just outside Paris’ city centre, was a risky venture eleven years ago. But now,  this centre has made its mark as the first entirely digital arts and creativity centre in France… perfect for a multi-disciplinary artist like de Oliveira.

Described as an immersion into a “landscape of the mind” the exhibition centres on the short film “Aalternate”. Small but mighty, it has already been selected by 19 festivals, winning 6 awards as well as the Beaumarchais-SACD Award and its feature-length film writing grant. The film follows the subconscious of a woman in a state of reverie or coma as pieces of her memory collide with her psyche. Twisted shapes creep from her body creating organic shoots that in turn produce their own elements, spreading in all directions like spores. A car plunges into deep water, and is set upon by the mysterious and threatening forms that exist at the bottom of the ocean, slowly being crushed by glowing eels and finger-like tentacles. Meanwhile the motif – a contour that is picked up everywhere – is that of the woman’s body falling in a fetal position. Continue reading Drive to Abstraction
