Artist in Residence 2020.

Born in 1997, Laurine WAGNER is a french contemporary artist who lives and works between Paris and Strasbourg. Whether it is video, photography, sound, installation, performance or writing and poetry, her art allows her to question the world in which we live :

"My art practice is centered on the relationship between arts, sciences and society. Through immersive videography, sound installations and photography, the experience is at the center of my thinking by examining "in-between" states (transitional situations, borderlines). These decisive moments of passage are suspended, thus revealing to our consciousness the memory traces of a process of transformation and mutation which raise environmental, social and mental issues.

My artistic approach seeks to observe, to instantly capture physical and sensitive phenomena to reveal them under a new point of view : I bring together the differences. The origin, the beginning, between sacred and truth, is what science tends to explain and what art engages to glimpse, beyond the tangible world and appearance, it is the elaboration of a state of sublimation in which the ordinary dissolves itself as an unsuspected world.

I depend on processes, chance, the unforeseen and coincidence to reveal a certain permeability of the worlds between visible and invisible.

I mix different spaces, staged and temporal, between consciousness and unconsciousness, to question the beliefs, feelings and experiences of each person." - Laurine WAGNER

ARTIST STATEMENT

Laurine WAGNER thinks that art can change the world : living an experience makes it possible to question, evolve and raise our consciousnesses to take action. From individual and collective memory, traumas or accidents need to be listened, expressed, cared for to transform oneself and transform the world in which we live : a process of observation, understanding and healing to reveal echoes and positive changes.

 

 

FUGITIVE WORLD PROJECT

Sea levels are rising, migration will continue to intensify, a part of our world will maybe disappear.

During the Art House Holland residency, Laurine WAGNER has the opportunity to start her Fugitive World project in Leiderdorp because the Netherlands is a favorable place which is threatened by rising sea levels with a quarter of their territory below sea level. Innovation has always been at the heart of this country, first by building coastal structures to fight against rising waters. The help given to other nations, also victims of floods or natural disasters, seems essential as well as a reflexion to save humanity.

Fugitive World is a research and creation project merging art and science, having the purpose in a few years, to develop a memorial restoring of anticipated memories. It’s about the people interviewed and the recording of places that are and will be brought to disappear due to the rising waters.

So this project will allow me to travel all around the world, establish collaborations and develop my artistic work. Art is a mean of combining science and sensitivity towards innovation, transmission of knowledge and multidisciplinary sharing.

Fugitive World allows to probe consciousness and therefore make as many people as possible aware of the urgency of acting both, individually and collectively.
