Within the framework of the Manif d’art 6 under the theme of Machines – The shapes of movement, la chambre blanche welcomes the Berlin artist Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag. The artist will show the installation « GAMMAvert – a X-SEA-SCAPES », an artwork that presents a poetic and scientific confluence in which a photography of the Baltic Sea, a place near the artist’s childhood home, is manifested in the form of high-pitched chirps and pulses of light. Referencing the ocean waves in the photograph, the room is awash in « standing waves ». These sound waves are so low that they can be both heard and felt as the viewer wades through the gallery space bathed in a monochrome green glow formed by a single frequency of light. Besides the presentation of this exhibition, Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag will realize a residency in la chambre blanche during which he wishes to deepen his researches about the phenomenon of auroras borealis, Thulé and the Inuit culture. Finally, the artist will give a master class on May 31st at 5 pm. to our artists-run centre.
