Convolutions by EZ3kiel (FR)
18 Aug to 26 Aug
7.30 PM - 12.00 AM
National Museum of Singapore, Façade
Convolutions is an action to wrap itself within itself or around another body.
The project molds the architectural facade of the National Museum of Singapore. It choreographs every part of the museum in a poetic ballet borrowed from technology where ancient and modern co-exist in great harmony. It proposes a new and contemporary look on the art of mapping by relying on a very precise use of the art of light and laser. The music composed by the French group EZ3kiel comes to illustrate, in a most precise way, the work of the images.
This installation contains strobe and flashing lights. Please exercise caution.
About the artist
Yann Nguema moved into artistic work in 1998 when he obtained a higher national diploma in visual arts with honors. The musician founded the EZ3kiel group in 1992 for which he developed an entire burgeoning visual production, which is now a reference in the industry.
He first gained recognition for his graphic work which has a very personal and poetic feel. He was tasked with the visual direction of the festival Transmusicales of Rennes from 2007 to 2011. His work focuses primarily around the performing arts, with constant research around the music and imagery.
He also introduced an interactive dimension into his creative process and productions by developing his own software. In 2009, he designed an exhibition The Poetic Mechanicals composing of 10 interactive machines combining technology and patrimony. It was displayed at the Palace of Discovery (in Paris, and at the Universal Exhibition in Shanghai. Yann designs many unique interactive installations which uses technology, research and poetry.
He is currently an ambassador artist for the Festival of Lights in Lyon.
