Pause Talking / Play Gesture!
In the exhibition “Pause talking / Play gesture”, we propose to interactively explore what is the characteristic of gesture with digital artworks inspired by Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Intelligent Objects. Human gesture raises fascinating questions : How we perceive and understand the movement ? How to make visible and tangible the expression, the behaviors ? And what about the expressivity and the emotions in gesture ?
In his book “Mind’s Eye”, Oliver Sacks explores the fundamental facets of human experience, how we represent the world internally when our eyes are closed, and the remarkable, unpredictable ways that our brains find new ways of perceiving that create worlds as complete and rich as the no-longer-visible world. Maurice Merleau-Ponty in the “Eye & Mind” examines how art, specifically painting, displays the act of viewing the world with openness and immersion that is more truly representative of the continuum of existence.
As humans, we use gesture to both to perceive and to act and real-time technologies now allow to reflect this aspect more and more. The artworks presented in the exhibition “Pause talking / Play gesture” are designed to experiment this reflection, participants are invited to experience, to exchange, to interact and to engage in their inner world of gestures.

The exhibition-performance INTERO/CEPTION explores our relationship to ourselves, to others and to our environment through interactive art installations. The new technologies that connect us make possible to live singular experiences giving sometimes the illusion of isolation, but it also allows to create new participative artistic forms, where the aesthetics emerges from the improvisation of the spectators, whether it is individual or collective.
LET’S INTERROGATE THE ART-TECHNOLOGY MEDIUM
LET’S WONDER ABOUT NEW SPACES
LET’S ASK QUESTIONS IN ACTION
LET’S FEEL TRANSPORTED
LET’S EXPERIMENT FREELY
Six installations by nine artists are presented during one day of events at the UQO gallery. The end of the day will be punctuated by short performance.
