From the 4th to the 7th of May, with a vernissage on May 7th, three A/V installations will occupy the gallery spaces at Eastern Bloc.


Coup d'éclats, 2011 is a new performance/installation created by Danny Perreault with Manuel Chantre, Guillaume Bourassa, Sébastien Gravel and [victortronic]. The installation explores principles of anamorphosis, applied to moving images projected in the performance space. The piece is presented as an installation on May 7, a sneak preview of the full A/V performances, which will occur during Eastern Bloc's Sight & Sound festival from May 11 – 17, 2011.

Titan and Beyond the Infinite, an audio/visual projection by artist Jean-Pierre Aubé, is an interpretation of automated space probe Huygens' "log book.” Using authentic data collected from Huygens by the European Space Agency, the artist conveys a personal interpretation of this key moment in space exploration. sessile, an installation by Steve Daniels proposes a colony of 50 kinetic pods which respond to changes in ambient light levels by opening and closing their limbs. Although individual pods share a common form, each reacts to environmental changes in subtly different and often surprising ways. Titan and Beyond the Infinite and sessile can be experienced during Eastern Bloc's regular gallery hours.
