La Gaîté Lyrique is a Parisian cultural center dedicated to digital art and contemporary music. First conceived as an opera house in 1792, the space has gone through a number of changes throughout the years, having since been reconverted into a hybridized studio space, concert hall and gallery.

From the outside, the center looks like many of the pristine buildings in and around Paris. Inside, however, is like stepping into the set of a sci-fi thriller. In the past, the space has played host to a number of emerging musicians and artists, from Flavien Berger to Olivier Ratsi.

The gallery is currently playing host to an immersive series of installations by Canadian artist, Sabrina Ratté. Based between Montreal and Marseille, Ratté is aware of the information overload brought upon the Post-Internet age. She chooses to deconstruct the digital image and its enthralling power through hypnotic artwork that draws on the intersection of architecture, web culture and science fiction.

Curated by Jos Auzende, “Aurae” presents 11 of Ratté’s “image-spaces” for the first time together. Instead of using signs to guide audiences around, Ratté utilizes an ominous noise and accompanying glow to entrance viewers around the dimly lit space. Non-linear in presentation, each of her holograms, photos and 3D animations offer alternative realities that augment our experience of the here and now.

Purposefully devoid of any human depictions, visitors bring their own unique perspective to the art — at times being the surface to which the holograms project off — in other instances providing a sculptural silhouette for the surrounding audience to observe. This movement around the space reflects “our relationship with screens, our desire to pass through them to fuse with what they display,” Auzende added.

Add your own imprint to “Aurae” as it goes on view at La Gaîté Lyrique until July 10, 2022.
