Recently graduated from the prestigious Brussels Art School of La Cambre, where she was noticed and specially awarded by the jury, Alice Pilastre ventures between very ancient techniques and resolutely contemporary forms of art. Tapestry/textile and music are at the base of her work. Her «Ritournelles» are a poetic diversion from the traditional music boxes and invite the visitor to interact with the artwork, generation random or controlled music. A nostalgic leap back in time meanwhile a surprising look into Alice’s world of dreams.
A punched metal band becomes the score of a music box. Every visitor may interact with the creation, using the handle to trigger notes of the magic Erik Satie's gymnopedias. But soon the tune goes the other way around, unveiling what was hidden and unheard.
