Never has the question of immateriality in art been so prevalent as it is today. It could be argued that works of art have always emerged from the mind, as Leonardo da Vinci, who in his day considered them all “cosa mentale”, already asserted. In the 1960s, when so many artists began to “calculate” their geometric abstractions, the concept began to shift from the human brain to that of the computer. Then, in the 1980s, Jean-François Lyotard and Thierry Chaput called their exhibition at the Centre Pompidou Les Immatériaux, a manifesto of postmodernity.
Les Immatériaux. Here, the creative potential of electronics and information technology is showcased in a transparent scenography of grids. The rest is history. More and more artists are hijacking the ubiquitous computer system, when they’re not collaborating with artificial intelligences, to upload their virtual creations to online platforms. What is relatively new is the interest shown by a new generation of collectors in the digital oddities that, in the field of art, so aptly testify to our society of the immaterial. Their desires oscillate between a dream of the virtual without limits and an attraction to pieces that participate in a form of re-materialization of the world, given digital manufacturing processes. The exhibition [ in ] material is all about hybridization, bringing together works with different coefficients of materiality. When the lack of materiality summons the sublime.

NFT – SENT by Vidya-Kélie
Sent.vidyakelie.com is an interactive digital website in which the user is invited to send a message and click on SEND. The work makes visible a path of information through a space with no other recipient than the one who writes himself, a self-contemplation of his own sending and on the traces usually left on the web like the debris of satellites around the earth. In a space that is not stored anywhere (see code on the site) here, Vidya-Kélie proposes a playground to practice, to make mistakes, to step back without the possibility of being judged, traced or analysed.

Vidya-Kélie is selected by ORLAN
For the Opline Prize 2022, ORLAN, the internationally committed transmedia artist and feminist working with her body as material, chose the work of Vidya-Kélie as a feminine and sensitive relay.
An inauguration cocktail will be held on Saturday 01 October at 6pm at the 17th arrondissement town hall for the Paris’s Nuit Blanche with a conference by Maurice BENAYOUN, ORLAN, Clément THIBAULT, Primavera DE FILIPPI and Jean-Jacques GAY.
Welcome to the event,
More info : http://www.oplineprize.com/
the exhibition at Symbiont Space has been extended this summer until August 14th!
So these are the last days to visit my work HOPE MOTION, this story of permanent movement that animates the world and turns into a magnetic Tango!
A lesson in humility generated by hundreds of people around the world who cry out for energy independence and who unknowingly participate in the frenetic dance of two magnets moving in their magnetic fields.
In order to enhance the exhibition with related exchanges, here we will discuss over a cocktail the notions of “Institutional VS Free science”.
At the closing, this Sunday, August 14, 2022, 21h, will be led by Roland Fischer this traditional ritual of Cocktail + Guest.
I hope you will be there!
Wishing you a nice summer,
See you soon!

Symposium, 15th June, 10am
with Vidya-Kélie, Joana Moll, Shusha Niederberger and Selena Savic
During Art Basel, symbiont shows two works on the nature of technology or techniques of the natural. Joana Moll’s work “Inanimate Species” reflects on the resource consumption of digital hardware and places the rapid development in the chip market in a critical relationship to the decline of biodiversity. Aesthetically, the installation is oriented towards insect collections in the cabinets of natural history museums. In “Hope Motion” Vidya Kelie lets the forces of attraction between two magnets perform a suggestive dance. What secret rules do the elegant movements follow – are there really only physics and chance at work?
hosted by Géraldine Honauer and Roland Fischer
Symbiont Space, Riehenstrasse 6, 4058 Basel | 13-19.6 June open from 9 to 12 am and 9- 12 pm, Coffee in the morning, cocktails in the evening, with invited guests!

Symposium, 15th June, 7 pm, Participation only by registration HERE
🔗 is a conceptual dialogue between Géraldine Honauer‘s work and the contributions by Vidya Kelie, Oliver Fuhrer and Johannes Gees, which she has brought together. The symposium provides a framework in which Honauer can enter the world of non-fungible tokens (NFT). In this context, Johannes Gees will install an NFT by the artist with the participants. Beforehand, Oliver Fuhrer will open his cloud models and measurement systems to the participants, contrasting physical spaces with coded ones. Furthermore, Vidya Kelie spans a luminous and energetic arc between two exhibition spaces with an interactive installation.
