Online exhibition La Fiac 2012 “The End of a world”
Co-commissariat avec Julien Levesque
from October18, 2012 to December 31, 2012
LaFiac.com is a cybersquatting, the goal is to hijack the attention which arouses the International Fair of Contemporary Art to bring to light the French and international online creation. The presented works are not salable, but are a part of a very present reality. We think, as such, that they deserve the biggest interest. The title of the 2012 exhibition is : The end of a world.
Brueghel’s painting “The Fall of the Rebel Angels” is the interface to this edition. Angels become the avatars of net artists. The visitors discovers artists and works gradually when the cursor passing over the angels. This process refers to the “tagging” images on social networks.
