QUARANT-iMAL : while we are all stuck at home we want to share some mind-tingling online content with you.
Today, we’re very pleased to announce that we’ll be taking part in this special online exhibition called "We=Link: Ten Easy Pieces".
We=Link is a project initiated by Chronus Art Center (CAC) (Shanghai) in collaboration with 10 international art organisations. The works presented are network native, exploring the potential of mobile technologies, particularly with a creative and critical appropriation of various social media platforms. Through this exhibition, all institutions involved use this opportunity to recapitulate the importance of net art practice.
For this exhibition, iMAL has contributed in proposing a work by French artist Raphaël Bastide, ‘evasive.tech’, an online artwork routine that he is developing throughout the quarantine period.
RAPHAEL BASTIDE – evasive.tech (2020)
For this exhibition, iMAL has contributed in proposing a work by French artist Raphaël Bastide. evasive.tech is an online artwork routine by Raphaël Bastide throughout the quarantine period (starting 17/03/2020, ending ?). Like his previous web-based project otherti.me, evasive.tech is a series of episodes, each being envisioned and coded on a daily basis. evasive.tech develops a narrative through composition and transcripts.
Raphaël Bastide creates works such as transitional musical instruments, fragile web pages, ambiguous computer programs, critical network architectures, revisable and version-controlled sculptures, and quarantine-driven coding performances. He lives in Paris where he teaches and bakes bread.
