MOIS MULTI

Mois Multi invites you at L'espace 400e for an unforgettable experience. A dozen of installation pieces are are presented in the Espace 400e premises, including a digital playground.

Tele-Present Wind

At first glance, the tele-present wind installation (2018) could be perceived as a plant-like oddity composed of 126 dried plant branches mounted on metal rods. This undulating symphony is actually orchestrated by the wind’s blow, the intensity of which is captured via anemometers located in Minnesota, USA. This reconstituted mini-forest, acting as the promise of a somewhat disturbing mechanical future, rises and sways in unison, giving the scene a strange aura: that of a still life yet very much alive. The sound of the moving metal rods, like leaves caressed by the breeze, reinforces the organic spirit of the installation. tele-present wind is in fact a shifted representation of fluid dynamics, the main subject here being the observation of the movement of wind.

Sming, Superbe

With its interactive Sming installation, the Superbe team offers you the chance to be both conductor and full choir, simultaneously. By recording your voice and processing it with software custom-designed for the installation, it becomes possible to control and modulate your vocal flow. You can take control of the rhythm and intensity of our self-supporting choir. This intimate and surprising technological experience will allow you to dive into your own vocal vibrations and harmonies; to play and experiment with music in a whole new way.

LA BANDE VIDÉO

Staring at the sun, Annie Briard

Exhibition presented as part of Manif d’art 10 – La biennale de Québec : Les illusions sont réelles

Refering to the saying that staring directly at the sun will cause blindness, Staring at the Sun invites us to break this rule and gaze. Briard uses a frequency discovered by NASA often associated with paranormal apparitions, since it is said to cause a vibration of the iris which can cause visual hallucinations. In addition, a sound used in neurological research to activate the organic functions of visualization resonates in space and contributes to the immersive experience. The device therefore causes afterimages, illusions of movement and fanciful colors to appear in the viewer's head.

La montée des eaux, Dgino Cantin

Exhibition presented as part of Manif d’art 10 – La biennale de Québec : Les illusions sont réelles

Following a research and production residency at Engramme, Cantin proposes an installation where ways of expression and materials intertwine. He creates polymorphic sculptures that occupies the space in organic proliferations. Resulting from superpositions and juxtapositions, Cantin's prints evoke the fragmentary nature of dreams and unconsciousness.



AVATAR

Bellona Times, Ronald Kuivila

After a production residency at Avatar, Ronald Kuivila will present Bellona Times at the 23rd edition of Mois Multi.

Bellona Times is a sound installation that originates from the novel Dhalgren, published in 1975 by the American author Samuel R. Delany. In this story, Bellona is a city where the sky is grey and the light is always the same. The local newspaper appears at irregular intervals, never at the same time.
