4th edition "Virtual Exhibition / Real Exhibition": #2 Physical Restitution from 7th to 11th July 2021
Recto VRso
International Digital Art Festival
Recto VRso
Recto VRso is an international exhibition of art and virtual and mixed reality held during the Laval Virtual event. Founded by artist-researcher Judith Guez, Recto VRso aims to invite artworks of artists, researchers, students and explorers who question the virtual reality medium, directly or indirectly, so as to bring out new artistic forms.
#1 Virtual: Emergence
From 14th to 16th April 2021, an event in the Laval Virtual World offers a virtual conference programme, debates, meetings and discussions about issues of creation and diffusion today, gathering players from digital and comtemporary artistic fields, as well as an artistic celebration appealing to the public with a selection of works of online art.
#2 Physical: Restitution
From 7th to 11th July 2021, in parallel of the VR/AR event Laval Virtual, Recto VRso occupies the Musée-Ecole de la Perrine in the town of Laval for a restitution of about ten artworks selected after the annual call for projects and projects of invited artists. These creations will also be exhibited in the Virtual Gallery of Recto VRso 2021, an imaginary space with virtual codes, reversing the usual models of access to art.

Virtual Art&VR Gallery

Discover the 2020 artworks

The physical exhibition "Real Body - Virtual Body" was transposed into a virtual environment. The Recto VRso has experimented with another way to show the scenography and artworks planned for the Art&VR Gallery of the 2020 edition: a virtual exhibition of the Art&VR Gallery of the Recto VRso 2020. The exhibition was to be held in the magnificent 17th century chapel of the Lycée Ambroise Paré. The team created a 3D model of this space and elements of the planned scenography, then imagined an interpretation of each artwork in the virtual space based on certain elements provided by the artists. They propose to the virtual spectator to travel and experience the exhibition in another way.

« Between the real and the virtual, artists and researchers exhibit artworks that question matter, illusion, body, perception, immersion, interaction and relational aesthetics. »
Judith Guez
Curator and Director of Recto VRso
« My participation to Recto VRso during the Laval Virtual exhibition was a wave of immersion. The organisation was impeccable, the professional encounters were rich and close, every second stays printed in me as one of the most important experience of my career. »

« Recto VRso is a unique experience. Being invited to exhibit in such an extraordinary venue and at the same time having the opportunity to exchange with people coming from so many different disciplines was making my time there a once in a lifetime moment. Furthermore the team was doing an outstanding job regarding the organization. »
