Recto VRso

Recto VRso is an international exhibition of art and virtual and mixed reality which is held within the framework of the Laval Virtual event, from April 14th to 16th, 2021. 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. Recto VRso is made up of two parts : the Art & VR Gallery and the Art Itinerary.

Art&VR Gallery

The official ‘Art&VR Gallery’ exhibition presents artworks selected after an international call for projects. The exhibition will take place in the ZOOM, Museum of Sciences of Laval, from the 14th to 18th April 2021. One of the artists exhibiting at the Art&VR Gallery will have the honour of receiving a Laval Virtual Award (in the Art&VR category) during the awards ceremony at the Laval Theatre.

The Art Itinerary

This itinerary highlights artistic diversity by inviting established artists, students, researchers and collectives to take over different symbolic places of Laval, like the Bateau-Lavoir, the Bains Douches, the Laval Theatre and the Perrine Garden.

Eve dance is an unplaceable place

Winner 2019

Eve is a girl who makes the encounter between what is real and what is not possible, travelling between dimensions, shaping questions. In this encounter, three random users enter Eve’s body and travel in stories by means of incarnation, a virtual reality experience. Artists: Margherita Bergamo and Daniel Gonzalez Production: Mark Lee & Lucia Candelpergher

« Between the real and the virtual, artists and researchers exhibit artworks that question matter, illusion, body, perception, immersion, interaction and relational aesthetics. »

« 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. »
