17 - 25 SEPTEMBER 2010


Beyond drawing, Jenny Pickett questions the nude genre with a
crossdisciplinary attitude. Portaits & drawings are developed through
sound and image. Astract forms that become soft furnishings. Reclining Nude is a series of upholstered sound sculptures referring
to the de-constructed body through objectification and/or dehumanisation
by various means – The Body is reconstructed through spacial Sound
drawings or re-materialise as felt vibrations of the viewer when in
contact with certain works.

Jenny Pickett is an interactive video, installation & sound artist –
works at APO33, a Nantes based research lab. She mixes puredata and
other FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software) tools & DIY electronics
with discarded objects & electronic hardware to create installations and
sculptures that often react or interact with an audience or an environment.

APO33, as an interdisciplinary laboratory drawing on the artistic and
technological fields
, fosters various collective projects associating
research, experimentation and social intervention.
In the continuity of the dynamics that has been opened by the free
software movement, apo33 is structured as a modular space, initiating
collaborative projects and creative processes, as well as exploring new
artistic and creative modes of production and diffusion

CONFERENCE – Tuesday, 21st of September
“Les paysage sonore du corps”

Jenny Pickett will give a talk on her installation at Apo33 and concepts

Human Body. What is the most immediate and short meeting between those
two objects? A physical blow.”-
Michel Chion
