TAFAA – TINA UNFOLLOW ALICE
Chloé Delarue plays with the physical perceptions of our environments and their translations into virtual worlds. She employs various techniques to interpret the concept of matter, including, here, the tools used for automatic data generation. The work TAFAA – TINA UNFOLLOW ALICE establishes poetic and aesthetic parallels between the world of particles and the digital realm, as it explores the notion of matter as the constitutive substance of our tangible reality.
Inspired by conversations with CERN scientists about uncertainty and its interpretation, Chloé Delarue’s work delves into the ambiguous relationships humans maintain with increasingly sophisticated and autonomous technological tools, pushing the boundaries of complex knowledge ever further.
Although the tools used by scientists are becoming more and more sophisticated, uncertainty is always inherent in their research and their representation of reality. We ourselves are made up of particles whose behaviour is governed by uncertainty, opening up a multitude of questions and interpretations.
Chloé Delarue (born in 1986 in Le Chesnay, France) is an artist based in Geneva who observes the alterations on our perception of reality caused by automation and simulation effects in the digital age. She was an artist in residence at Arts at CERN, CERN’s pioneering art and science program, in 2021. Chloé Delarue’s works, including her extensive series “TAFAA – Toward A Fully Automated Appearance”, reveal the nuances of a world perpetually reflecting upon itself.
