Micro-conference - Sophie Auger

For our next micro-conference to be held on May 31, 2022 at 7 p.m. via Zoom, Sophie Auger will present her research on the status of the work of art in the context of cryptoart. Through her experiments in cryptography and in the new context of dissemination offered by the blockchain, the artist is interested in the following questions: when does the life of a work of art begin, continue and end? When does the public experience the work? When and how does an experience become past? She will also talk about her most recent project: “If a Token Could Speak” presented at the Elektra gallery in Montreal until June 18.
Since 2020, LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE has been producing a series of 15-minutes micro-conferences intended to mirror the dynamism of the visual and digital arts community, both nationally and internationally. The members of the LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE collective wish to maintain links with the community by offering these micro-conferences. Once a month, we invite an artist to present a project, research or concept. Thus, the public will be able to question, reflect and bring a lively discourse on the arts. This forum will then be archived on our Vimeo account.

Sophie Auger is an artist from Quebec who lives in New Jersey. Her work aims to deconstruct various image diffusion technologies by operating through screens and projectors, places of diffusion and art markets. Through video installation, publication and experimentation on the blockchain, she questions the systems for assigning value (symbolic and monetary) to images. Sophie holds a BFA in Studio Arts from Concordia and an MFA in Design from Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts.
