Unforeseen Spaces

Marie Lelouche
Solo show

Alberta Pane Gallery is pleased to present Marie Lelouche's fifth solo exhibition in its Parisian space.

For Unforeseen Spaces, Marie Lelouche continues her exploration of the relationships between the physical and the virtual realities of the space. The exhibition at the gallery is an extension of a research project started during an artist residency at Les Tanneries Contemporary Art Center in Amilly (France), in 2021. During this residency, Marie Lelouche was interested in the birds that inhabit the park of the Art Center, as a means of decentralizing our point of view on this area. Building on this, she created an exhibition that appeals both to hearing and sight, as well as to the movements of visitors and the experience of the space "augmented" by a virtual reality device.

With an interview by Emanuele Quinz:


*This exhibition has been created in partnership with the Centre d'Art Contemporain Les Tanneries located in Amilly, France.

The development of the virtual reality artwork entitled Unforeseen Spaces (2021) benefited from the participation of the DICRéAM, a french program for the support of artistic multimedia and digital creation of the CNC - Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée.

A part of the sound elements of the work Unforeseen Spaces rely on the use of the programs/software for bird song recognition BirdNET and BirdNET-Pi as well as the online collaborative bird sound library XENO CANTO, thanks to recordings by Peter Boesman, Jorich van Arneym, Frank-Udo Tielman, Grzegorz Lorek, Jerome Fischer, Larss Edenius, Jorge Leitano, Tristan Guillebot, Jarek Matusiak, Mateusz, Erik Roels, Sylvan Schnabel, Alin Malengreau, Norbert Uhlhaas, Bodo Sonnenburg, Brickegickel, Toon Jansen, Frederik Fluyt, Hans Matheve, Twan Mols, Florian Kubala,Bernard Bousquet, Fabian Deck), all under Creative Commons License.
