Invited as part of the ARCHIPEL residency programme, artist Adrien Degioanni worked at mastering the acoustic signature of occupied buildings in Lille and Denain.

The artist records “silences”, a sound matter “which can be heard during our absences” and with which he explores the possibilities of amplification and acoustic transformation. At the Frac Grand Large, Degioanni has taken night and day sounds in resonance with the exhibition and rendering the transient auditory states of the building detectable.

Degioanni’s works suggest enigmatic material correlations between sound, place and our bodies in movement: can a watch without a second hand chime the seconds? Can loudspeakers broadcast silence? Combining modified mechanical objects and various devices, he plays on our senses and the materiality of our environment. Do we have to strain our ears to see better or follow electric wires with our eyes to hear? Like its title, the exhibition The Wind Comes from the Trees is an invitation to doubt.

BIOGRAPHY
Born in Toulouse, Adrien Degioanni is a graduate of the art schools in Biarritz (2014) and his home city (2016). In 2018 he co-founded the Grande Surface exhibition collective in Brussels, and in 2022 a joint project with an architecture agency saw him take out first prize in the UNESCO Paris Week of Sound international competition. He divides his time between France and Belgium.

ARCHIPEL is a residency programme for emerging artists under the umbrella of four committed Hauts-de-France art schools: Le Concept – École d’art in Calaisis (The Pale of Calais), EMA / École Municipale d’Art in Boulogne-sur-Mer, École d’Arts Plastiques in Denain, Espace VillAr(t)s and Centre d’Arts Plastiques et Visuels in Lille. The book accompanying the exhibition features an essay by writer-philosopher Bastien Gallet.
