LI-MA Presents: digital trees and talking machines
Saturday, 24 June, 2023 QUAI10 in Charleroi, Belgium
LI-MA has had the honor to curate a digital art program taking place at arts center Quai10 in Charleroi during the festival Canaux, Pays-Bas x Pays-Noir.
Thanks to communication technologies working at the speed of light, we are everywhere, all the time. We are in constant contact with each other, but what does that mean, and what are the consequences? In this video screening programme, artists ask themselves and us how we are connected to each other and the surrounding landscape in technological times. Curator Sanneke Huisman selected six video works made between 1970 and now, which are each from the LI-MA collection. Together they show a broad palette of new relationships between people, landscape and technology through the lens of video art. A colorful procession of analogy tricks and digital techniques breaks through existing boundaries of the natural and the artificial. Find yourself surprised by early experiments with the video camera, get lost in a dilapidated digitized primeval forest and become familiar with the strangest AI creations. With works by Steina, Broersen & Lukács and Emile Zile, and more!
This event is made possible with the support of ‘Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Belgium’.
