Martine Frossard The Gaze

Date(s): Sep 1st 2016 to Jun 30th 2017

Residency

F. Bonenfant, 2017

The Gaze is an installation that combines video, sound and interactivity. A young woman faces an empty chair, on which the viewer is invited to sit.

The Gaze explores the emotions that we unconsciously try to decode and normalize in our relation to others, as well as the dynamics of influence and uncertainty between individuals. The installation brings viewers face to face with their feelings in the context of a non-verbal conversation. The work speaks to the instability inherent in interpersonal relationships and to our instinctive desire to interpret the other’s gaze.

The work of multidisciplinary artist Martine Frossard is centred on illustration, animation, and interactive installation. She explores the quest for identity and the way in which individuality gets fragmented and reinvented across time and experience. Going beyond illustration, she uses video animation as a medium to animate the metamorphoses of her characters’ identities. At the same time, she creates participatory installations in which viewers are invited to undertake their own identity quests.
