Olga KISSELEVA (Russie)

Double vie

Video Installation

Artists and intellectuals who are unable to make a living with their creations, and find themselves needing to devote part of their energy to working to “pay the rent,” are invited to take part in the Double Life project.

The first part of this diptych shows the artist who is forced by society to lead a kind of double life: a confrontation between his creative mind and his routine work, imposed by need. The second part is a parallel narration starting with elements of his daily environment, based on the artist’s proposals.

 

Olga Kisseleva, born in 1965 in St. Petersburg, is one of the most recognized Russian artists of her generation. She lives and works in St. Petersburg and Paris.

Olga Kisseleva’s work combines actions that take place in urban environments or in a network with interventions in galleries and museums.

SynchroniCity (Interractive Installation)

2011-2012 / production AIRE / association Artefact

PLACE DE JAUDE UNTILL MARCH 18TH

SynchroniCity is a collaborative creation initiated by Marc Blieux. International artists and the audience contribute to its construction. It’s in this realm of possibilities that a multimedia work will be born, whose axis is the relay antenna of our desires and doubts, a Schrödinger box, a passage toward other space-times, other levels of consciousness and energy.


SynchroniCity is :

  • a 3D virtual environment in real-time
  • an interactive installation by body movements
  • a multi-network presence
  • a physical journey in a real environment and augmented reality
  • a feature film

 

Marc Blieux was born in 1970 in Vichy.

He defines himself as a researcher. After studies in plant biology, this research moves into the artistic field. In 2000, he creates the Epsilo center and develops a theory asserting that the flow of subjectivity are transmissions of energy. In his opinion, the contribution of quantum physics in the building of a new thought model can only be effective by understanding its implications in each of our lives.

He is not interested in creating isolated works in a closed system, but carrying out experiments taking into account 3 ecologies: natural, social, and psychological - as Félix Guattari defines it. Marc develops his projects in a school as well as in an art center. With the AIRE project in 2006, the artistic structure with which he works becomes the first French association to set up in the 3D digital platform Second Life. In 2010, a national museum’s project that was launched and developed by Marc Blieux wins an award for innovative cultural service by the Minister of Culture.
