Last June, I was invited to show my new installation “White Roads in the Red Matrix” for the first time, at BIAN (Biennial International Digital Arts), Montreal.
The event, organized by Elektra festival, aims to reveal the effervescence of the digital art in Quebec and the maturity of the discipline internationally. Other artists  such as Carsten Nicolai, Herman Kolgen, Ryoji Ikeda, Robert Lepage, also presented their personal work which was mostly installations.

The piece I presented is a light and sound sculpture whose elements are suspended in mid-airspace, and fragmented in a space. Read more →

EYJAFJALLAJOKULL at Mapping festival 2012

What an intense week.
The mapping festival is pretty much the best and the very unmissable event in Europe if you’re into visual art and interested in the post Vjing culture. They’ve been offering cutting edge content for the past 8 years, and the festival offers a mix of clubbing events, conferences and workshops, installations at the BAC (a contemporary Art gallery), architectural projections and outdoor events. This is also where I met most of my favorite artists, Legoman, 1024 architecture (formerly Exyzt), Quayola, UVA, Sigma6, and you’re likely to bump into many festival curators, who come to find the “next big thing” and upcoming visual artists.
The festival is run by the team behind Modul8 and Madmapper, so you can always expect to get major Read more →

Cityscape 2095

Cityscape 2095 is the results from a collaboration with the illustrator Marc Ferrario aka Mandril. Though using different techniques of expression, our work is heavily influenced by architecture.

This project began shortly after Imandril contacted me via facebook to tell me he like my work and would love to work with me in the future. After this first contact, I visited his website to see his work that I didn’t know before. Read more →

3Destruct at Scopitone 2011

3Destruct, an audio-visual installation by Yannick Jacquet, Jérémie Peeters and Thomas Vaquié was shown at the Lieu Unique October 12-16th 2011 as part of the Scopitone festival.

The 3Destruct project started in 2007, inspired in part by the wide-open yet claustrophobic space of an underground car park that the Biennale of Contemporary Art of Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium had offered. Since then, the project has been presented in other festivals: Mapping Festival in Geneva (2007); Image Radio, Eindhoven (2007), 100% Montpellier (2008); most recently Yota Space in Saint Petersburg (2010).

Live Painting – Shackleton

After loads of travels and events abroad, I had a chance to get some rest for a couple of weeks, and stay a bit around Bristol..  I also realized that I haven’t played ‘at home’ for a while, so I was really pleased when I’ve been asked to do some visuals for a Dubstep night at the Croft, which is the place where I did my very first VJ set when I moved to UK, back in 2004.

The organisers were more after a “stage design” rather than a simple screen setup, so it was the perfect occasion to get further in the “live painting” experiments that I did in June.
