Eastern Bloc presents SIGHT and SOUND: an immersive video experience, over 2 nights (May 29 + 30), incorporating the work of 20 artists from Canada and the United States. Combining various forms of digital arts, these artists will collaborate in a manipulation of the space at the Eastern Bloc through the use of six projection screens, encapsulating the audience in waves of sound and video. The artists’ works will travel from one screen to the other, in random sequences, creating an onslaught of sensory stimuli.
Part I (May 29) is co-curated by Eliane Ellbogen (artistic director, Eastern Bloc) and Marie-Helene Parant (Share MTL – www.sharemtl.com). Part II (May 30) is curated by Eliane Ellbogen.
SIGHTandSOUND: Part I will captivate its audience with 2 hours of experimental audiovisual explorations. The works presented will encompass an interactive, ambient, and minimal approach to audio and visual collaborations amongst the following artists:
Katherine Liberovskaya and Eric Létourneau;
Marie-Hélène Parant, Angela di Lauro, and François Giroux;
Chris Jordan and Maxime Rioux;
Chika Iijima and Jim Bell;
Eric Filion – Nokami and Michael Trommer
Doors open at 8pm. Performances start at 9pm both nights.
