Out of sight is an exhibition that has been sustained by simple experiences : looking up at the night sky or even looking through a telescope. However, these experiences become more complex as soon as we think that the light our eyes get from the stars is trapped in time or that the vision we see through a telescope is adjusted to our scale as human beings. The works introduced in this exhibition are all attempts to get closer to the stars by interpreting phenomenas that are beyond what we know on Earth.
Armelle Tulunda is an artist who creates mostly works on paper and light installations. Deconstructing astronomical images using different processes, she finds inspiration in the relationship that we build with objects that challenge our visual abilities through imagination while working with change of scales, light and darkness, distance and proximity. She graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Bourges in 2016 and is now undertaking a MA Degree in Fine Arts at Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Art et de Design de Nancy.
Exhibitions include : Falling Stars / Stella Cadenti, London, UK (2019) ; En cours, Nancy, France (2019) Hypothèse 2.8, Nancy, France (2018) ; Le son que fait la page, Bourges, France (2016).
Armelle is the Solo Show Award Recipient for the Lumen Atina, Italy Residency which took place in August 2018.
