As part of a collaboration with the École d'art de l'Université Laval, the Avatar team is pleased to welcome, since September, the student and artist, Nady Larchet, so that she develops, throughout her master's degree in visual arts, part of her research in audio and electronic art in our spaces.
Recently, Nady Larchet began to create works based on measuring instruments that she designs. The artist's latest works are resolutely focused on the quantifiable invisible elements of our environment such as the waves, the atmospheric components and the chemical and organic particles in the air. "My artistic approach focuses on how to bring to life what the eye can not see. For this project, the issue of composition and air quality will be further explored. Around this research, certain notions such as randomness, the detachment of the artist at work, the flow of direct and the translation of physical impacts will be addressed through sound art. "
During the two years of her studies, Nady will benefit from a very concrete accompaniment at Avatar. She will have access to high-performance equipment, professional workspaces, specialized advice and shared expertise. The artist will be involved in our exchanges, research and will also be involved in our collaborative projects.
Since 2013, thanks to the contribution of the René-Richard Foundation, Avatar, La Bande Vidéo and LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE have collaborated to allow a student from the École d'art de l'Université Laval to undertake a digital arts practice.
About Nady Larchet
Following her Bachelor's degree in Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal, Nady Larchet continued her research at the Master of Visual Arts at the Université Laval. Obtaining the Master's René-Richard Scholarship will allow her to conduct her residency research at the Avatar artist-run center. Sound and electronic art has been ubiquitous in her practice since 2013. Her work has been presented in several group exhibitions, notably at the Maison de la culture Maisonneuve, at the Université du Québec à Montréal and at Maison Lachaîne in Sainte-Thérèse de Blainville.
