Deconfine (6th to 29th November, 2020) is an online media art festival conceived and curated by Media Art South Asia*, under the aegis of November Numerique by Institut Francais. It is supported by the network of Alliance Francaises in South Asia (India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh) and Institut Francais en Inde.
Deconfine features artists, curators and researchers from France and South Asia. It examines the evolving, dynamic and multifaceted nature of human – technology relationships, and showcases works and initiatives that leverage the potential of technology to reflect on that relationship and other social issues.
The works featured in the exhibition are diverse in content and form: While Vincent Moon (‘Shahi Qawwals of Ajmer’), Pierrick Mouton (‘Sector 13’), Danushka Marasinghe (‘Now I never go home on the old road’), Pierre-Jean Giloux (‘Metabolism’), Parvathi Nayar (‘Water Exchanges’) and Palash Bhattacharjee (‘Special Feature’) and Bidhata KC (‘Aadhar’) have worked with video, Faisal Anwar (‘Char Bagh’) and Amay Kataria (‘Mom I’m Safe’) have created interactive artworks, and Justine Emard and Beatrice de Fays (‘InSpace’) have worked with Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality respectively. The exhibition will be available for free throughout November.
While the exhibition is on, conversations between the artists and the directors of Alliance Francaise will be streamed on all Alliance Francaise Facebook pages every week, moderated by the curators of Deconfine. Researchers / Curators Anushka Rajendran, the INCOMMON Collective, the Hidden Pockets Collective and Pauline Fournier will participate in live conversations about their work.
