Moments of encounter, closeness and distance and mechanisms of recognition are important to their work. Their work often has to do with dismantling systems of thought set in place by oppression, colonisation and gender.

Gregoire Rousseau

Gregoire Rousseau moved from France to Finland in 2000, researching and working actively in the field of Open Technology and digital commoning practices in contemporary art. Electricity as a form of energy produces motion, lights, audio, and activates software within a digital platform. His artistic practice stands for material as language, as concept finds form based on knowledge. The algorithmic processes challenge our perception and interpretation of the world and our society. The possibilities manifested by this new field in technology produce both a need in awareness and demands for a new radical approach of research to imagine new models of coming together and forms. Performances on stage operate as a sequence in time to experiment and research how materials and artistic content actually work all together once confronted with the audience. There is no clear demarcation line between live act and installation thought for art gallery space, both contribute in a formal way of expression to develop his work. Study on contradictions generates a field of knowledge and a space for his art practice.
