FROM APRIL 8, 2021
Curator: Isabelle Van Grimde.
From 2015 to 2019, Van Grimde Corps Secrets shared the scientific research documents underlying the creation of the EVE 2050 triptych with its collaborating artists. The Embodiment exhibitions served to disseminate the works stemming from this research, and to create a dialogue among them.
Embodiment 2 sets up another dialogue between Eve 2050: The Web Series and the works of Brad Necyk and Gary James Joynes, constructed in part with rushes from the series and motion captures made last March for the virtual reality prototype.
Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in the world of this virtual exhibition, to witness the dialogue between these works. The new formative link between them is thus highlighted, allowing a deeper understanding of the circumstances of their creation, as well as the scientific and artistic reflections underlying them.
