At each Biennale, an artist's project working in the public space is selected in order to carry out an in situ project in a public place in the 20th arrondissement. The guest artist deploys his project in the architecture of the 20th century, working in conjunction with the inhabitants of the district, and in agreement with the town hall of the district. This work, linked to the diversion of the photographic image, results in an installation in urban space.
From 29 nov to 09 dec
Opening the 30 nov at 20h
Square Reunion Island
A project by Martial Geoffre-Rouland and Benjamin Gaulon, based on Corrupt a software developed on the web Glitch Art Software allowing its user to download and share corrupted images on www.corrupt.recyclism.com. Corrupt damages data on a binary level, resulting in unpredictable results.
The software allows its users to trap videos stored on their computer, videos from their webcam or desktop in real time. When a clip is recorded, a 10-second video and an animated GIF file are saved locally and automatically.
An interactive device is placed in a mini studio set up in a shop in Place de la Réunion, where residents can come and film themselves for a minute by interacting on a device for image corruption. The images filmed by the inhabitants are then projected onto 2 buildings in the square for two weeks after dark.
Benjamin Gaulon aka Recyclism is an artist, researcher, teacher at Parsons Paris The New School for Design. In each of these activities, he strives to develop a creative and critical approach around the technology, the media and the modes of consumption that they generate. He also organizes since 2005 "e-waste workshop" where the public learns circuit bending, hardware hacking, as well as the problems related to the obsolescence programmed: it diverts material apparently obsolete to recompose thus new electronic objects. Pedagogical experimentation, considered as a mode of research, completes the arsenal of tactics of this artist who recycles, hack and hijacks.
Graduate of Elisava Barcelona, School of Design and Engineering, his work focuses on digital art and new technologies. Hands-on, Martial Geoffre-Rouland creates projects that explore areas as different as the web, digital installations or scenography. Since 2009, he works on technical and theoretical topics, helping participants to develop the potential of digital and code language.
