Since winning the SAT’s Bourse Euterke contest as an emerging VJ in 2011, motion designer and audiovisual artist Hughes Clément has further refined his very singular, dichotomy-dismantling approach to VJing through performances at MUTEK and showcased works in Beijing, Brussels and Paris. Informed by studies in electroacoustics and compositional work for the theatre and contemporary dance, Clément comes at VJing with scrupulous artistic deliberations and a playful bent for digital manipulations and abstracted graphic juxtapositions. From decontextualized caverns and constructed Icelandic landscapes to a myriad of disparate dancing forms, it’s all fair game for Clément, whose collages of contradictory forces will beckon your attention at EM15.
