12.05 > 20.05.2022 | PRIST exhibition – Dé-réalité Des Réalités #2 | ESA Tourcoing (Fr)

From September 2020 to June 2022, the PRIST research program has set itself the goal of examining the current forms of the plural realities from which our experiences are woven.

This exhibition presents the result of the theoretical and plastic research of more than twenty students whose plastic works intend to reflect on the tangled filiations between humans and technologies. These works are the fruit of a questioning that began when the pandemic demanded that Esä, like other art schools, invent new modes of artistic production, acquisition and transmission of knowledge. It was then necessary to imagine singular pedagogies, themselves crossed by screens, composed of videoconferences, exchanges and digital transmissions. Put in abyme, the reflection on the nature of our contemporary experiences – mixed with virtual, augmented or mixed realities -, then partly took place inside these digital media, being questioned afresh.

During these two years, PRIST students have developed visual and digital writing, accompanied by a reflection on the value of data, the importance of which is growing every day. Mobilized by this digital world which had

taken on an unparalleled scale, they were however able, thanks to certain relaxations, to take part in “face-to-face” activities, in several activities such as conferences, workshops, workshop sessions, visits to scientific laboratories and the Co-operation module. Arts and Sciences creation with the Polytech’Lille engineering school.
