INCERTITUDE is an audio-visual performance based on the Heisenberg principle of the same name. The work is a meditation on concepts that continue to baffle scientists, yet are the basis of our perception. An intense hypnotic journey using analog video and audio synthesizers as a source, manipulated and processed in real time by various digital processes, creating a unique experience during each performance.
In partnership with Paradise Art Space, Incheon and Elektra, Montréal.
Commissioned by Paradise Art Space (Incheon KR) for the exhibition Inscape.
Curator: Jay Bang. Coproduction: ELEKTRA.
Curator and Artistic Director in the fields of digital contemporary art, electronic music and sound art, Alain Thibault is also the founder of two major events in Montreal, ELEKTRA – an annual festival showcasing performances in digital art since 1999, and the BIAN, International Digital Art Biennale, oriented towards exhibitions, installations and public art since 2012. As an electronic music composer, his works have been presented throughout the local and international scene in several contexts, namely contemporary music and digital art festivals in North-America (Canada, USA, Mexico), Europe (France, Italy, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Belgium) and Asia (Japan, South-Korea, Taiwan).
Matthew Biederman creates works where light, space and sound reflect on the subtleties of perception. His work has been presented at, among others: Lyon Biennale, Istanbul Design Biennale, Tokyo Museum of Photography, Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris, Montreal International Digital Art Biennale, ELEKTRA, SCAPE Biennale (NZ) and Moscow Biennale.
Biederman is currently represented by Art45 / Sedition (online) and lives and works in Montreal.
