Exhibition

Martine H. Crispo, 2017

Spectres, ondes et modulations (Spectres, Waves and Modulations) is a collaboration between artist Martine H. Crispo and curator Nicole Gingras. The exhibition Fantaisie optophonique emerges from an exchange between the two women dating back to the artist’s first exploration with visualized sound. It features an original installation by Martine H. Crispo with a selection of films and videos in the adjacent gallery drawing on a range of optic and acoustic  phenomena by artists and filmmakers. The dialogue between these works, instigated by the curator, opens a space of reflection that Martine H. Crispo’s practice occupies, from a historical and thematic perspective.
