Eastern Bloc presents SIGHT and SOUND:Â 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 artistsâ€™ 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 LÃ©tourneau;
Marie-HÃ©lÃ¨ne Parant, Angela di Lauro, and FranÃ§ois 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.
