The Ecstasy of the Privileged Moment

The Ecstasy of the Privileged Moment

Between 2001 and 2007, I led new media art laboratories between Montreal, Havana and then Morocco. These lab sessions* were entitled The Ecstasy of the Privileged Moment, for they contributed to develop experiential knowing through an embodiment of transcultural boundaries, with a sensory focus on the notions of immateriality and the gift**. It resulted in a series of collaborations and artworks.

Nuit Blanche Montréal (2010); Research and Creation Artist in Residence, Gésù – Centre de créativité (2007); 100 ans de Rimbaud, Castello di Rivara – Turin Center for Contemporary Art (2005); Mois Multi Vasistas / Théâtre La Chappelle (2004); Festival Internacional de Música Electroacústica “Primavera en La Habana,” in collaboration with the Museo Nacional de Bella Arte de La Habana (2004).
