Quayola | Pointillisme | Galerie Charlot | Paris, France


Pointillisme is a new video work which continues Quayola’s ongoing exploration of high-precision laser scanning systems and their inherited imperfections. Drawing a parallel between historical pictorial traditions and computational aesthetics, this project speculates new landscape paintings created by machines. While reproducing similar conditions to those favoured by the ‘en plein air’ painters of the late 19th century, the natural landscapes are actually observed and analysed through extensive technological apparatuses and re-purposed through new modes of visual synthesis.

Quayola. Born in 1982 in Italy, he lives and works bewteen London and Rome. Quayola is a visual artist based between London and Rome. He investigates dialogues and the unpredictable collisions, tensions and equilibriums between the real and artificial, the figurative and abstract, the old and new. His work explores photography, geometry, time-based digital sculptures and immersive audiovisual installations and performances. 

Quayola’s work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; British Film Institute, London; Park Ave Armory, New York; Bozar, Brussels; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Cité de la Musique, Paris; Palais des Beaux Arts, Lille; MNAC, Barcelona; National Art Center, Tokyo; UCCA, Beijing; Paco Das Artes, Sao Paulo; Triennale, Milan; Grand Theatre, Bordeaux; Ars Electronica, Linz; Elektra Festival, Montreal; Sonar Festival, Barcelona and Sundance Film Festival. His work is part of several private and public collections, including Oddo BHF, Audemars Piguet, Hermès Foundation, Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire
