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.
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.

The MART Gallery, Rathmines
27 October – 12 November, 2016
Kirby’s sculptural interventions will respond directly to the architecture transforming the physical space of the front gallery with large scale works that draw our attention to colour, scale and presence, while Timoney will exhibit a family of objects manifested through a process of trial and error. These objects relate to the encounter between the manufactured and the handmade and the interaction between body and material. This family will materialize as an installation in MART’s back gallery. This exhibition will be accompanied by a text by Lucy Elvis.
