Hybrid installation

CHRONIQUES Production 2018

This immersive and evolving work is connected in real time with The Crystal & the Blind [part I] which is on display at Fresnoy,Studio des arts national de l’art contemporain, in Tourcoing.

This ecosystem operates on different scales; interactions take place at the microscopic, macroscopic and regional levels. Observing it enables the reordering of memory and imagination, summoned by an artificial intelligence to extrapolate a new narrative. Through it, the present moment crystallizes the memory of this microcosm, as well as its future. The installation transcends time and distance, and enables entry into a state of observation.

As passive spectators, faced with this world in incubation, we contemplate its autonomous ecosystem, continuously writing itself. Through these different reflections, the work raises issues related to agriculture in space: how can life be recreated in confinement?

Hugo Deverchère (FRA)

Born in 1988 in Lyon, Hugo Deverchère is a graduate of ENSAD Paris and the Le Fresnoy Studio National des Arts Contemporains. His work is a collection of experiences which represent so many leads to investigate and assess our relationship with the world. Be it through accounts, collected data, images that have been captured, produced, or simply found, his research has recourse to modelling, transposition or conversion processes which serve as a prism between real and representation.


This installation is a creation of the Chroniques production and distribution platform.
Coproduction Chroniques, 3bisF
