Water screen and video projection

Stranden at Aker Brygge
Joanie Lemercier has been expanding the possibilities of light as a medium and space as a canvas for the past 10 years. After exploring languages like video mapping, live shows and gallery installations in Constellations he uses an unlikely material to present his meticulous work: water.
This show becomes a gate for the exploration of the cosmos. 3D like visuals allow the audience to move from the heart of a black hole into deep space, travelling through planets and stars, as we look for the limits of the universe.
Constellations is a fascinating journey where the vectorial, monochromatic aesthetics of Lemercier dialogues with the electronic soundscapes of producer Paul Jebanasam.
Joanie Lemercier is a French artist primarily focused on projections of light in space and its influence on our perception. He has always had a strong interest in physical structures: geometry, patterns, and minimalist forms. Since 2006 Lemercier has worked with projected light, and co founded the visual label AntiVJ in 2008, with Yannick Jacquet, Romain Tardy and Olivier Ratsi.
In 2013, he founded a creative studio to develop installations, gallery pieces and experiments using projected light in space, based in Brussels.
