Video Interview: Deirdre Morrissey in Conversation with Yann Beauvais and Pierre Jolivet 

 

MART are proud to present Trouvées Métrage – an exhibition of experimental French digital media artwork in July 2017. Curated by Deirdre Morrissey and supported by directors Matthew Nevin and Ciara Scanlan, the exhibition opens at the MART Gallery, Dublin on Thurs 20th July and runs until 18th August 2017.

For our 2017 programme MART embarks on an ambitious new program curating artists to work under the parameters of risk and political agitation. Trouvees Métrage brings together four artists working in digital media whose practice tests and stretches the material and immaterial and challenge conventions of ‘the norm’. The artwork to be presented has been selected or ‘found’ through the Espace Multimedia Ganter collection of digital media artworks.

Artists selected are Yann Beauvais, Nicolas Montgermont, Antoine Schmitt and Pierre Jolivet.

Renowned experimental filmmaker Yann Beauvais presents three short films: p.a.c.i.f.i.c.a.ç.ã.o reaja ou será morto, which highlights police brutality in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; alongside experimental works ‘entre-deux-mondes’ (2010)  and ‘Hezraelah’ (2006).

Nicolas Montgermont is an artist who works with sound waves through the vibration of materials and their propagation, Radioscape, 2016  was created from radio recordings made in a small farm in Besseuil, a rural area in the East of France. The nearly complete radio spectrum has been recorded methodically during weeks and assembled into one sound installation.

Antoine Schmitt creates artworks in the form of objects, installations and situations to address the processes of movement. Ballets Quantiques (Quantum Ballets) is an infinite generative visual artwork, where a choreography of a crowd of pixels display apparently arbitrary and independent movements, but are actually programmed by the same quantum-type equation

Pierre Jolivet is a visual artist whose work explores the limits of sound and space through multimedia performances. Pierre will also present a dynamic live multimedia interactive performance on the opening night.

‘Dragons of Eden’ featuring work by Aoibheann Greenan {Gallery 1} and Terence Erraught {Gallery2} addresses mythological and real world societal challenges. The curators invited the artists to produce work that can provoke the limitations of the gallery environment, producing informative and experimental new work that can tease out radical ways of viewing and perceiving our culture and society. Greenan and Erraught have responded here with powerful creations that take on alternative perspectives on gender representation via symbols and icons of ancient cultures experienced through a schema of digital means.

Aoibheann Greenan presents The Eighth Seal, an installation and audio piece prompted by the Repeal the 8th movement and the ongoing struggle of Irish Women over the right to bodily autonomy. A radio interview reimagines the origins of Sheela na Gigs, ancient carvings scattered throughout Ireland depicting figures with exposed vulvas. Eschewing the tendency to interpret the Sheela through patriarchal narratives, the work proposes the symbol as both a harbinger of emancipation and metaphor for resistance. Esoteric and posthumanist motifs permeate the work, echoing the historical link between radical speculative fiction and movements for social change. The installation conjures a site for gathering, a space for consciousness raising, for invoking, for conspiring.

Terry Erraught’s work explores the masculine agenda of the contemporary artwork by addressing audiences increasingly desensitization of socio-political heinous events. In an era of instant digital media distribution, brutal violence appears to have become part of our daily routine, with audiences becoming increasingly indifferent. By engaging with mainstream media but using a primitive, ritualistic approach, Erraught attempts to connect with world events as they occur and enter our psyche. ‘Composition’ is a durational digital video painting, rather than an episodic performance, which contains references to multiple catastrophic events in recent times. Through a recognisable mythological and art historical aesthetic, the artist draws on his own personal experiences by physically manifesting into each of the constituent characters and situations in the video work. This can also be seen in Erraught’s second piece Saturn (The world revolves around me) which is a smaller installation or 3D painting recorded from a live performance. It is heavily influenced by Goya’s black paintings which portray Goya’s embittered attitude toward mankind, and struggles with panic, fear and hysteria specifically ‘Saturn Devouring his Son 1820-23’.
