Description of the exhibition:

For the first solo show of the artist Laurine WAGNER, Alice ANDRIEUX presents “Among waters” from June 22nd to 28th 2021 at the ScalaMata & La Storta in Venice.

Are you aware of the rising water levels ? Through video and sound installations or photographs, Laurine WAGNER proposes a memorial of anticipated memories. She combines art, science and society by leading a local and international reflection. Testimonies and observations rhythm the exhibition: which solutions are proposed to contain this phenomenon ? By working with people’s consciences and sensitivities, the artist invites us to reflect on the future and their involvement to help and preserve our nature : are you ready to migrate ?

Laurine WAGNER is a french artist and a researcher based in Paris & Strasbourg. She creates performances, video and sound installations that are both immersive and poetic. Currently, she is a Ph.D. student (Doctoral School 279: Plastic Arts, Aesthetics and Art Science (APESA)), attached to the research unit of the ACTE Institute (Arts – Creations – Theories – Aesthetics) at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. Her thesis is about « Filming the world: a relay art to accompany profound changes » like environmental, social, and mental issues to question the beliefs, feelings, and experiences of each person.
