From November 6 to December 14, 2021, the Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle presented the 16th edition of its International Digital Miniprint Exhibition. The exhibition took place at the gallery as well as on social media.
Curated by Dominique Laurent, Racines quantiques (Quantum Roots) brought together the artworks of 43 artists inspired by the quantum theory, which concerns the interaction of matter and radiation. The works, from Belgium, Canada, Greece, Hungary, India, Japan, the Netherlands, Romania and Ukraine, bear an energy signature independent of the creative process, which introduced viewers to the ultimate connection of the Self to the Universe.
The opening of the exhibition took place on Thursday, November 11, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Centre d’artistes Voix Visuelle. It should be noted that in order to respect health measures and social distancing, those who wished to attend the opening had to register here, where 25 minutes visit slots could be reserved. A proof of full vaccination against COVID (two doses) also needed to be provided. This was only in place for the opening. For the rest of the exhibition, visits happened the way they normally do.
Cash prizes were awarded to the artists of the deserving works. The winners were announced on December 14 on social media and the Voix Visuelle website.
