Points de suspension

Nady Larchet

Installation / 2023

During her creative residency at Avatar, Nady Larchet began making Points de suspension, a generative, sound, and kinetic installation.

Points de suspension is a project in development that poetically and metaphorically examines the complexity of human relations and their potential digressions, particularly in couples and families. A sound composition directs the impulse currents connected to communities of electromagnetic spoons, whose kinetic movements are created through the attraction and repulsion between the components. Collisions between certain “individuals” alter the algorithm of the sound composition, therefore altering it, which also changes the dynamics of the series of electrical currents. The mechanics and sonority of the work slowly metamorphose throughout its transmission.

Generative, sound, and kinetic installation activated by electromagnetism.
Prototype made during a creation residency at Avatar.

This residency is made possible through a collaboration between Avatar and EISODE. The work will be presented at EISODE (Montreal) in 2024.

Originally from the Côte-Nord and living in Chaudière-Appalaches since 2016, Nady Larchet is a multidisciplinary artist who specializes in sound, digital, and electronic art. She holds a bachelor’s degree in visual and media arts from UQAM and a master’s degree in visual and media arts from Université Laval, for which she received the Prix d’excellence René-Richard for her research. She has presented her work in several exhibitions in Quebec and has collaborated with many other artists. Using her teaching experience and technical expertise, she started giving workshops in sound and electronic art several years ago. In addition to her artistic practice, Larchet has worked in cultural organization management and has sat on several boards of directors for about a decade. In 2021, she co-founded EXEcentrer, an organization dedicated to the production, dissemination, and cultural mediation of media art.
