7PM PRESENTATION OF THE IN SITU WORK
Fonderie Darling is pleased to invite you to the unveiling of this year’s in situ artwork, on July 16 on Ottawa Street. This year, guest curator, Laurie Cotton Pigeon, presents D.o.t.T.D. (Dance of the Techno-Demon) by Montreal artist duo Anna Eyler and Nicolas Lapointe. The work, presented in the form of a travelling hot dog shop, consists of a performative and interactive augmented reality installation. The artists will also present a Web version of the D.o.t.T.D., allowing the Artificial Intelligence to be activated in real time. For the unveiling of the work, the artists animate the event at Place Publique, providing a commentarial exploration of the work in the form of a "Play-Through", which will be broadcasted live on our Facebook page.
ANNA EYLER & NICOLAS LAPOINTE
The collaborative practice of artists Anna Eyler and Nicolas Lapointe is based on an investigation of the web environments and computer-generated worlds associated with video games and immersive technologies. Combining digital art and sculpture, their interdisciplinary approach is inspired by the similarities and correspondences that can be made between simulated realities and real life. Interested in how digital objects influence daily life and how the technological imaginary is expressed, they explore their communicational and relational potential by appropriating the language of computer programs. In recent years, the duo has participated in local and international residencies such as the artist-run centre Verticale (Laval, 2018) and Bòlit: Centre d’Art Contemporani (Catalonia, 2019). Most recently, their work was presented at Galerie AVE (Montreal, 2019), Re-Envision Film Festival (UK, 2019), and Artist Project (Toronto, 2020).
