Réencodages regroupe des œuvres installatives et vidéographiques qui évoquent l’univers des oiseaux de manière contemporaine et expérimentale. Les œuvres intègrent chacune à leur manière une parcelle de nature et mettent en perspective le décalage entre le réel et sa reproduction, le naturel et le construit. Utilisant des moyens techniques actuels, elles explorent cet espace de fiction avec humour : des modules électroniques interactifs évoquent d’étranges oiseaux, un système mécanique d’engrenages de bois rappelle le gazouillement des moineaux et des voix humaines s’exercent à la traduction. Qu’elle soit sonore ou visuelle, la figure de l’oiseau est ici réencodée, réinterprétée et simulée, devenant un objet poétique que le spectateur peut investir de son propre imaginaire.

Re-encodings assembles installation and videographic works that evoke the world of birds in a contemporary and experimental manner. Each in its own way, the works integrate a fragment of nature and put in perspective the gap between the real and its reproduction, the natural and the constructed. Using modern technologies, they humorously explore this fictional space: interactive electronic modules evoke strange birds, a mechanical system of wooden gears recreates the twittering of sparrows, and human voices do some translation exercises. Whether taking aural or visual form, the figure of the bird is re-encoded, reinterpreted, and simulated, becoming a poetic object that the spectator can reconsider in their own imagination.
