Hexagram grants winners 2019

Elastic Spaces is happy to announce that among the recipients of this year’s Hexagram Research-Creation Grant is Anastasia Ferguson and duo-collective, Sonya Ivanov & Dimo Stoeva.

AWARDED PROJECTS

Anastasia Ferguson – Conjuring Optics is an audio/visual installation and artist book looking at the cinematic apparatus of modernity and its relationship to the illusions produced by the stage magic of 19th century Europe, as well as the sociological impact of illusions on perception.

Sonya Ivanov & Dimo Stoeva – Le projet Light-scape formation consiste dans une installation cinétique, qui utilise l’illusion comme technique, pour la construction des environnements paysagère par l’entre mise de la lumière et la matière. Le projet explore le rapport humain vers le paysage naturel en évoquant les notions du sublime dans l’art.

DETAILS ON THE HEXAGRAM GRANTS

With the help of student grants, Hexagram wishes to provide concrete support to the research of its student members. Added to this is access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and equipment, integration into the governance of its network, and training.

This year again, about fifty projects were analyzed by a jury of members-researchers and an external expert. We thank the many candidates who submitted a project and we also thank the members of the 2019 jury: Jean-François Renaud, Lynn Hughes et Katharina Meissner, responsable développement stratégique du festival MUTEK.

Closing Night: Outer Worlds – Images Festival, Toronto

This program presents five original IMAX commissions, giving artists a unique opportunity to experiment with the large screen format. In keeping with the cinematic genre typical of IMAX films—the larger-than-life landscape that forms an outer world beyond the limits of the human sensorium—each of the films explores expanded cinema through different ecologies of the non-human: the forest, lichen, snails, water, and sky. The works propose different worlds of experience and distinct grammars of immersion through a meeting with the camera.

The invited artists in this program, Oliver Husain, Lisa Jackson, Kelly Richardson, Michael Snow, and Leila Sujir, imagine common worlds by reflecting upon the exigencies of intercultural and interspecies communication. This task has taken on great urgency in the 21st century as we grapple with how to adapt to the ecological realities brought about by anthropogenic climate change.

The Outer Worlds world premiere is on April 18, 2019 at Cinesphere, in Toronto, Canada part of the closing night of the Images Festival. Images festival runs from April 11-18, 2019
