Lab212 is an interdisciplinary art collective, founded in 2008 in Paris. Using new media, the collective creates installations which explore our perceptions of space and sound. These pieces, in which the visitor becomes an actor, provoke a loss of bearings and offer a sensitive interpretation of impalpable phenomena by giving them a materiality, as through light and sound beams in space (Passifolia, 2020), the force of the wind on the landscape (Nebula, 2018), or the weight of the body in atmosphere (Starfield, 2012). Their works were exhibited at the Barbican Centre, MuDA Zurich, Centre Pompidou.
That which lies between the apple and the plate has to be painted as well
How to explore the aesthetic qualities of the void? What does the emptiness carry?
Through spaces of attention, in which the visitor's path is at work, Lab212 questions the visitor's responsibility towards his environment. Nicolas Guichard and Béatrice Lartigue will focus on the possibilities of "emptiness" as a medium through their artistic practice.
