De Junkai Chen, installation 2016
Correspondance is an interactive work and a performance in which Junkai Chen draws freely on two poems – one French: Correspondances by Charles Baudelaire, and other Chinese: The Torrent with Birdsong by Wang Wei. Innovative interactive devices are used to complete this installation with performative moments. The use of acoustic instruments and digital projection help create a real-time audiovisual symphony. Capturing the performer’s movements gives his work a choreographic dimension combining gesture, image and sound. The body thus becomes a tool, like the painter’s brush or conductor’s baton. Junkai Chen interrogates his sensorial and spiritual experience in relation to these two artistic and cultural worlds which he inhabits.
