EXHIBITIONS 2020

From July 11, 2020
Curator: Margot Gronnier
Voix Jeunes Talents | Génération Visuelle (Visual Generation)

Voix Visuelle once more held its Voix Jeunes Talents event, seventh edition. With the theme Digital Generation, the exhibition was virtual, for the first time broadcast entirely on social media. The launch took place on June 11 on Instagram, and allowed visitors to enjoy a unique experience. All the works in the exhibition are available anytime and anywhere, offering unlimited sharing.

It is undeniable that we live in an increasingly virtual and digital society, where new technologies are at the heart of our daily lives. This technological renewal is redefining our habits, thus disrupting our way of communicating or of having fun, but also transforming the world of the arts by making accessible to all a huge, inexhaustible range of creative possibilities.

For a whole generation of young people born during this Information Technology revolution, the creation of visual content has become second nature. With the emergence of smartphones with visual applications like Instagram or Snapchat, photography has evolved, becoming an element of everyday life that young people can appropriate, and use to reinvent themselves, every day.

These young artists, proponents of the new methods, will present diptychs, thus guiding us towards a more complex reading of the work. This exhibition will allow you to delve into the heart of their visions, their perceptions, their sensitivities. It can also make us reflect on the similarity, the difference, the evolution or even the duality that two images can maintain between them.

Journal alternatif II, ou les cahiers d’Ishtar

Opening: Thursday, January 23, at 5 p.m.

The artist herself is at the center of the stage as a figure from mythology who travels through times, where objects and symbols belonging to other eras are overlapped to form a playful and enigmatic space. This solitary research work also enables the public to question its own origins and to ask the universal questions: who are we, and where are we from?
