ANTIVJ's digital installations that discover new dimensions
Brussels - OCT 26, 2013

ANTIVJ is a visual label based in Belgium whose work focuses on the use of projected light and its influence on perception. The label was founded by Simon Geilfus, Yannick Jacquet, Joanie Lemercier, Olivier Ratsi, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquie, a group of European artists whose own production also dealt with light mapping and time-space perception.

Since its beginning, ANTIVJ has had the goal of providing its audience with an experience that challenges the senses through inmersive installations and live performances. Inspired by geometry, nature, visual perception and optical illusions, each artists brings their own language and expertise to the group, who over the years have established a language and work method that makes them stand out from the rest. Each new project reflects their goal of pushing the limits and exploring the potencial of standard configurations and techniques.

One of the pieces that best illustrates their language and work method is the recent Onion Skin, an inmersive installation designed by Olivier Ratsi. Onion Skin is made up of a module of two walls that form a right angle, a projection and a 5.1 sound broadcast. The installation explores the recomposition of time-space through anamorphosis, a complex game of perspective where simple geometric elements that seem to be bidimensional, when viewed from a precise position start to delimit a new space and appear to move toward the viewer.

The installation, that lasts 14 minutes, creates a physical and hypnotic experience for the audience, transporting them to new dimensions where untouchable things suddenly seem tangible. The illusion of being confronted with a new dimension is created as the onion skins are detached from their physical surface, challenging the viewer's perception of volumen and space.
