Création artistique : intelligence artificielle et les nouveaux paramètres de l’art

Luxembourg Art Week

Artificial intelligence is reshaping the landscape of artistic creation, establishing a dialogue between humans and machines. We invite you to explore this dynamic with the artist aurèce vettier and AI expert Valentin Schmite during an enriching conference and debate.
         —     Conference with Paul Mouginot (Artist and creator of the project aurèce vettier) and Valentin Schmite (AI expert, author, founder of Ask Mona)

                 Location: Art Talks | Language: French

 

 

Aurèce vettier uses AI as a creative tool, thus exploring new artistic frontiers. On the other hand, Valentin Schmite, author of “Reflections on the Talking Robot” and founder of the AI startup Ask Mona, examines the intersection of art and technology from a reflective perspective.

The conference will begin with a retrospective on the history of relationships between machines and artists, highlighting how art can catalyze technological innovation. They will then delve into contemporary creation through the lens of generative AI, exploring how this technology can enhance the creative process. To conclude, the discussion will turn to the ethical and legal challenges posed by AI in art. Our speakers will discuss implications regarding intellectual property and the evolution of creativity in this emerging technological context.

         —      Valentin Schmite

Valentin Schmite explores the connections between art and artificial intelligence. He co-founded Ask Mona in 2016 to bring cultural institutions closer to their audiences through technology. Since 2018, he has been teaching a course on AI and culture at Sciences Po. Simultaneously, he contributes to the public discourse as an author. His latest book, “Reflections on the Talking Robot: Conversations with ChatGPT,” represents a unique milestone, delving into the dialogues between humans and machines and highlighting the challenges of this innovative technology.

         —      aurèce vettier

Aurèce vettier, created by Paul Mouginot in 2019, is an artistic project that blends art and technology. The identity of aurèce vettier allows for explorations between the physical realm, where art takes tangible form, and the virtual space of data, enriched by artificial intelligence algorithms. This approach transforms machine-generated elements into raw materials, thus expanding conceptual horizons. Poetry, a central element of his practice, led to an initial collaboration with a machine to publish a book. Continuing to explore generative approaches dating back to the 1950s, aurèce vettier creates works that navigate between the real and the virtual, as exemplified by his series “Potential Herbariums,” merging traditional artistic forms with AI-inspired digital creations.

Café Pauline – Installation by Pauline-Rose Dumas

Luxembourg Art Week

The French artist Pauline-Rose Dumas, who took part in the EIB Institute’s Artists Development Programme in 2022/2023, has been commissioned to make new work for the café space at Luxembourg Art Week. Her installation, Café Pauline, continues her research into the combination of wrought-iron sculptures and textile works.
         —     Special projects, Luxembourg Art Week
                 09-12 November 2023

 

 

Pauline-Rose Dumas (Paris-1996) is a French textile artist who integrates wrought iron and drawing into her large-scale installations. She graduated with honors from the Beaux-Arts de Paris (2022) and Chelsea College of Arts (London, 2019). In 2022, she took part in the European Investment Bank’s residency program for emerging artists in Luxembourg, under the mentorship of Tatiana Trouvé, at the end of which two sculptures became part of the EIB collection in 2023. 

The artist’s installations always reflect a relationship between the exhibition space and the studio from which they emerge. The deliberately exaggerated dimensions of these motifs and forms open up a more personal dimension specific to the artist: the witnessing of the universe of what is composed and transformed, in the intimacy of the creative process. 

In this space without a picture rail, the sculpture acts as a wall. Here, the installation is the surface that delimits the interior and exterior of Café Pauline, acting as an invitation to pass through to the other side of the works on display. The public is invited to enter a vocabulary of forms that transits from the human scale to the scale of the site’s architecture. Large textile patchworks present motifs that spill out: stains, fluids, imprints, forms that have a hold on the void, that escape control to surprise with their freedom. 

The sculpture of wrought-iron elements is presented here as a form of writing in space, like a line of drawing criss-crossing the pages of gigantic steel notebooks. These free lines that punctuate the installation represent the thread of thought, the power of speech, of what is exchanged in a public place, a café, as well as what is silently annotated in a notebook.

Movie screening and discussion: Alaska-Patagonia, the Great Crossing

In the presence of the protagonists

    In collaboration with the Cinémathèque de la Ville de Luxembourg, we invite you on an extraordinary journey with Sophie Planque and Jérémy Vaugeois!
Sophie Planque and Jérémy Vaugeois, a couple with a passion for mountains and geography, set themselves the challenge of cycling 28,743 km across the American Continental Divide over a two-year period. The Continental Divide lies at the heart of the American landmass: the Brooks, the Alaskans, the Rockies, the Sierra Madre and the dreaded Andes.
 

In search of the soul of the continent, it’s with the people who inhabit these mountains, with the mineral and sedimentary elements, that this couple experience a geography of extremes. More than a bicycle trip film, it’s an ode to geography, to the discovery of detail, to the understanding of relief, to a deep love for our planet.
 
“It’s a trip for lovers that’s more of a grand odyssey than a peaceful honeymoon. Sophie Planque and Jérémy Vaugeois have embarked on an adventure in XXL format. It’s an adventure full of emotions, memorable encounters and sometimes trying unforeseen events”. (Radio France)

Europe Day Festival 2023 !

Europe Day Festival 2023 !

European village, concerts, food trucks, entertainment, and much more…

United in diversity. Come and celebrate the Europe festival in Kirchberg. In 2019, Luxembourg is the first EU country to declare Europe Day a legal holiday. Luxembourg City is one of the capitals of the EU institutions. It is therefore the ideal place to celebrate Europe!

Every year on 9 May, Europe Day celebrates peace and unity in Europe. This date marks the anniversary of Robert Schuman’s historic declaration, in which he set out the idea of a new form of political cooperation in Europe, which would make war between European nations unthinkable. Robert Schuman’s proposal is considered to be the birth certificate of what is now the European Union.

The Institut français du Luxembourg is taking part in the festival and will take you on a journey to discover the French regions and their gastronomy throughout the day, alongside the French Embassy in Luxembourg!
Come and celebrate Europe with us in Kirchberg!

This year, the Europe Festival will be placed under the sign of the following priorities…

– A green and competitive Europe
– A competent and fair Europe
– A safe and strong Europe, in solidarity with Ukraine and the world

In collaboration with the City of Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Government.
With the participation of the European institutions in Luxembourg, the embassies of the EU Member States and Ukraine, and the managers of European programmes in Luxembourg.

Virtual Reality Pavilion 2023

Virtual Reality Pavilion 2023

The 6th edition of the VR Pavilion will bring together award-winning virtual reality films from around the world and artworks using other immersive technologies like augmented reality and binaural sound to create emotional, mesmerizing and engaging experiences.
The Pavilion’s selection showcases films that document the rawest human realities and others that explore the boundaries between fiction and reality. Our programme pushes the limits of immersive storytelling and takes us from the past to the present, from discovering the intricate architectural details of the Notre-Dame Cathedral to participating in the first-ever VR experience captured outside the International Space Station. The VR Pavilion will also host the 5th edition of the VR Day industry event and a student Game Jam.
