Le disque de poussière - Installation - 2023

présentée dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 25


Le Disque de poussière invites us to probe tiny meteorite particles, the terrain of an intriguing investigation into the origin of stars. Their irregular morphology reveals a mineral writing that researchers attempt to decipher, until it mysteriously seems to come to life.

The artist proposes to reconsider the way we perceive minerals by observing, on a microscopic scale, dust that pre-existed the formation of the solar system. The occasional malfunctioning of the microscope erases engraved messages. This reminds us of the impossibility of completely controlling things, of grasping them as a whole.

Charline Dally (Courcouronnes, 1994) lives between France and the unceded territories of Tiohtià:ke/Mooniyang/Montréal. Her practice combines analog video signals and computer generated imagery through films, installations, and performances. At the same time science-fiction and poetic reverie, her work outlines spaces where human, biological, mineral, and technological identities are played out and thwarted. Graduated from Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains and UQAM in visual arts, she has realized artistic residencies at Signal Culture (Owego, NY) and the Society for Technological Arts (Montreal). Her work has been presented at MOCA (Toronto), MAJ (Joliette, QC), FIFA (Montréal), Ann Arbor Film Festival (Ann Arbor, MI), FNC (Montréal), VIFF (Vancouver), CTM Festival (Berlin), MUTEK (Montréal and Barcelone), BISFF (Beijing), OMAF (Séoul), Les Abattoirs (Toulouse). She represented Quebec at « BMO 1st Art » exhibition at MOCA (Toronto) in 2019.
