WIP collective – Jérôme Boulanger & Thibaut Drouillon
Hours and dates
- From 10am to 6pm daily
WIP collective is a pair of artists made up of Jérôme Boulanger and Thibaut Drouillon. Using digital technologies to make visual choices, the collective analyses reality as fiction, questioning the status of vectors for constructing collective identity.
Together, they question the impact of the injunctive nature of language and cartographic representation on their relationship with the territory. In so doing, they are attempting to deconstruct the representations and symbols of collective identity and offer them a new perspective.
Using digital technologies to make visual choices, the collective analyses reality as fiction, questioning the status of vectors for constructing collective identity. Digital programming allows them to move away from a total control over the finality of the forms they propose. The pair use algorithms and code to leave the creative process open to chance. In this sense, the images, devices and installations they create highlight a generative and physical process that is constantly evolving.
Their work tries not to be fixed in a stable, permanent form. It is often the consequence of a change of state.
As part of the Capture #2 exhibition to be held at Le Pavillon from 23 September 2023 to 14 January 2024
Cascade is an installation that questions the notion of capturing reality. From the mechanical era to the digital era, the granularity of the modes of capture and display still offers us a limited vision of our reality. By cascading several devices together, imperfections are amplified with each iteration and become the vector of a moiré effect that gives rise to coloured abstractions.
