From Wednesday 1 to Sunday 5 March V2_ is part of the Digital Days, which focus on the increasingly dependent relationship between man and technology. The programme in cooperation with the Kunsthal, SETUP and STRP includes talks, workshops, films, games and interactive installations, all of which will be of interest to both a general and a specialised public.
During the Digital Days V2_ will present the work Jardins d'Été by Quayola. For the program at the Kunsthal visit the following page.
Jardins d'Été by Quayola pays homage to the tradition of french impressionism and the late works of Claude Monet.The second iteration of this series of artworks investigates the ways in which nature is observed, studied and synthesized, becoming a point of departure towards abstraction.
Quayola recreated similar conditions to the classical impressionist landscape paintings, however he engaged with an extensive technological apparatus to capture the sensitive nuances of reality beyond our senses. Here natural landscapes are observed and analysed through the eye of the machine, and re-purposed through new modes of visual synthesis.
Quayola is a visual artist based in London. He investigates dialogues and the unpredictable collisions,tensions and equilibriums between the real and artificial, the figurative and abstract, the old and new. His work explores photography, geometry, time-based digital sculptures and immersive audiovisual installations and performances.
