Simploring 2019 (64) Binary Radiation at the Gallery La Serre

Sunday, June 9th, I visited the exhibition “Binary Radiation” at the gallery La Serre. The gallery La Serre is located at VeGeTaL PLaNeT. I came across across VeGeTaL PLaNeT during my visit to the latest exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read Simploring 2019 (56) La Maison d’Aneli in May). VeGeTaL PLaNeT is created by Vroum Short, who was one of the artists presented in May at La Maison d’Aneli.

The exhibition “Binary Radiation” opened on Monday, June 10th and I visited before it opened. Aneli Abeyante, owner of La Maison d’Aneli, had sent an invitation for the opening to me. Aneli is also curating the gallery La Serre.

“Binary Radiation” by Nino Vichan at Gallery La Serre (1)

Binary Radiation is an installation by Nino Vichan. The walls of the gallery are covered with integrated circuits. In the center of the room are two projectors sending light beams to the opposite wall. The light beams consist partly of the digits 0 and 1. The silhouettes of humans seem to operate the projectors and they also seem to control a spherical device in each beam that constantly changes it form obviously following fractal rules.

The whole installation is full of light effects and the pictures I took can’t really express what you see when visiting in 3D. You will be caught in a world of 0’s and 1’s, literally diving into a binary world, caught by artificial intelligence? In which way you interpret Nino’s work is up to you. I was impressed by the effects and the countless different forms and circuits I could discover only for seconds before they were replaced again. It is also intriguing to take a closer look at the two silhouettes.

Aneli, who was present during my pre-opening visit, told me that Nino is Italian. He’s not only doing installation with light effect but also creates drawings and other forms of art. She gave me two links, one about “Desert Abstract“, a series of abstract images from 2014 that Nino made inspired by a visit to Nevada. The other link shows some of Nino’s drawings that were exhibited in Second Life in 2012.

Aneli also told me that she is going to move her “La Maison d’Aneli” to VeGeTaL PLaNeT. The first exhibition there will be opened mid of July.

Thank you Nino for this great and inspiring installation. I enjoyed my visit a lot.
Thank you Vroum for providing the gallery La Serre and thank you Aneli for curating the gallery.
