Edition 2015

ART RESEARCHES #4

This fourth edition of The search for Art, carried out in partnership with the Institut National de la santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INseRM) and the eNsP, fits within the thinking developed by the school around medical operation photography, one of the main focuses of the newly created research unit created within the institution. This year, during their residencies at the INseRM laboratories, florian da silva, célia honoré, Margot Laurens and Vincent Marcq, were able to discover and explore imaging equipment linked to computer technology and digital sciences. each of their works question this image taken as a ‘procedure’, ‘operation’ or ‘system’ and how said image is perceived, making us become aware of the strange paradox of no longer being able to decode and interpret these images of the body, which is and remains surprisingly unknown to us.
