Joanie Lemercier

April 19 – May 26, 2013

Well-regarded in Europe for his video mapping projects in Public spaces or UNESCO protected sites, Joanie Lemercier presents unique light performances and installations that question one's perception of space.

Stepping away from standard setups and techniques, Lemercier animates his own drawings and sculptural work using video mapping technology- a new technology that he has used since its inception and that he still contributes to develop. Lemercier’ abstractive works dwells on the objective details of his subjects: light, organic forms, geometrical shapes and colors. In this new piece, static surfaces of an origami wall sculpture installation transform into animated movements. With light wandering through the surface of the installation and at times being projected at precise points and places of the wall, the viewer is plunged into a hypnotizing experience of minimalist beauty.

Expanding the visuals from the restrictions of flat, rectangular surfaces and moving into a three-dimensional world, Lemercier transforms a unique wall sculpture installation into a virtual realm.
