VERDURES, from weaving to pixels
“The exhibition VERDURES, from weaving to pixels is an unprecedented encounter between the ten tapestries of Anglards-de-Salers (Cantal) created in the 16th century in Aubusson and contemporary digital works that question the themes of greenery and nature. Exceptional because of their quality and rarity, these medieval tapestries question the place of man in his environment. Imbued with the same questions, the digital creations of Naziha Mestaoui, Isabelle Dehay, Anne-Sophie Emard and Scenocosme offer reflections conducive to nourishing the experience of the visitor. This original and sensitive dialogue between heritage pieces and digital creations offers the public an immersive journey through a fantastic universe and gives new keys to understanding the events that agitate our world.”
Endemic plants, protected, symbolic, distant traces of a golden age; in these gardens, a delight where the natural cycles become cinematographic, the project Landscape Dpi places us in front of entropy revealed by time, faced with the emotions that arise from a mental landscape, whose artificiality revisits our sensitive relationship with the world.
Isabelle Dehay is a French artist who develops her composition of the moving image through a visual, sensorial and experimental language. She realizes installations that thwart the linear temporality of the film: random editing, fragmentation or multiplicity of the scenario, scenographic interaction.
She graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Nantes and she has produced numerous 16 mm short films, video works, digital art, and performances. She often works with contemporary musicians and composers. Laureate in 2014 of the French Institute for a creative residency in Acadia, her work in Canada was also exhibited at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax.
