Artist Talk
Thursday, June 9, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Winner of the inaugural Ateliers studios Saguenay-Montréal production/residency grant (digital arts and new media) for artists from Ville de Saguenay and the island of Montreal.

Karine Côté playfully subverts the spectator’s gaze by repurposing the familiar nature of art objects in space and time. During her residency, she will conduct research for a living wall that would allow the exploration of the natural choreography that operates between a viewer and a work of art, where an individual’s movements generate reciprocal audio-visual and physical signals.
