Olivier Gain

Born in 1986 in Orthez (France)

Olivier Gain was born in 1986 in France and graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-arts Angoulême/Poitiers.
His work takes ordinary objects and presents them in an unusual way. By amplifying or transposing one of the object's characteristics, he thus reveals phenomena or processes that would normally remain intangible. These elements are therefore from one field of perception to another. In this way, he attempts to confront the spectator with events that are normally excluded from the 'real world' or, more to the point, inaccessible to our senses. This implies a process of transposition from one state or space to another.
His work has been shown in different art spaces or digital/sound events such as FRAC Angoulême, the Nemo biennial hosted at the Chateau Ephémère and at City Sonic sound art festival.
