iMAL aims to support artistic and creative practices using technologies as their medium. We are an Art Centre hosting exhibitions, conferences and performances around arts & cultures in a digital world but also a reflexion centre focused on research and debates around the critical issues of our technological society. Our creative Fablab encourages social inclusion and innovation towards a more sustainable development. With our educational programme, we aim to empower our community and to inspire the next generation to participate in digital culture.
Visits to the exhibition are possible from 17h-22h
18h - 00h

Freeka Tet (FR) presents 'UV101'
AV performance / internet culture / DYI softwares / sensors & face tracking
Freeka Tet is a nomad creative mercenary combining techniques like hacking, coding, audio & video plunderphonics and much more to reinvent his own radical audio and visual language. Each of his performances is playful and intuitive, but also like an attack of epilepsy: convulsive and unpredictable.
Dylan Cote & Incogito (FR) present 'Earthsatz'
AV performance / France/ GoogleEarth / 3D landscapes / photogrammetry
Earthsatz tries to amplify the cold and oppressive poetry created by our Google-generated world, where life doesn't exist and particules are replaced by pixels.
Tarik Barri & Lea Fabrikant (NL/IL) present 'Zo'
AV Performance / digital vs analog / image & sound / 3D audiovisual / Joystick / Voice
Visual musician Tarik Barri expresses himself through his constantly developing self-programmed 3D audiovisual space. Lea Fabrikant creates, destroys and compiles her environments using her voice and various materials to distort her message through the lens of the digital world.
Myriam Bleau & LaTurbo Avedon (CA) present 'Eternity Be Kind'
AV performance /Canada/ Avatar/ AR / hyper-pop
LaTurbo Avedon performs Myriam Bleau’s music in a multiplatform audiovisual performance. Navigating between hyper-pop, mythical symbolism and baroque hints, the artists propose a multilayered experience of collective mise en abyme.
