Audio and sound, architecture and cosmos

Thursday 18 20:45 - 1433193300 Sónar by Day

The renowned French artist Joanie Lemercier once again teams up with British musician James Ginzburg to create “Blueprint”, a unique audiovisual installation exclusive to Sónar 2015, which will be launched at the SonarComplex stage. “Blueprint” explains the immateriality of space, architecture and causality, through choreography of structural elements. This story will be projected onto a central monolith flanked by two screens on stage, behind which will be hidden its two creators.

The work of Joanie Lemercier –founder of the reputed Antivj collective– revolves around light projections in space and their influence on perception. The French artist began creating small computer graphic designs at the age of five, and in his later youth was interested in structures, geometry, patterns and minimalist forms. As his work evolved, he began to experiment with these elements in a philosophical and physical way, adding the light element to manipulate the perception of reality. Lemercier has worked with Flying Lotus and Portishead’s Adrian Utley among others, and his work has been exhibited at the Beijing Museum of Digital Art, Art Basel fair and the Sundance Film Festival. James Ginzburg, British musician based in Berlin, has worked on numerous projects as a producer. He is co-founder of the Tectonic label together with Pinch, forms part of the Empyset project, and has performed at numerous events and festivals around the world.
