Using new media, Béatrice Lartigue creates installations which explore our perceptions of space and sound. These pieces, in which the visitor becomes an actor, provoke a loss of bearings and offer a sensitive interpretation of impalpable phenomena by giving them a materiality, as through light and sound beams in space (Passifolia, 2020), the force of the wind on the landscape (Nebula, 2018), or the unfold of a music score in volume (Portée/, 2014).
Béatrice teaches Media and Interaction Design at Gobelins (Paris, FRA) and regularly leads workshops in institutions such as: ECAL (Lausanne, CHE), Estienne (Paris, FRA), ENSAD (Reims, FRA), Université Paris VIII (Paris, FRA).
Her works were exhibited at the Barbican Centre (London, GBR), the Miraikan Museum (Tokyo, JPN), the Museum of Digital Art (Zurich, CHE), the DMuseum (Seoul, KOR), le Centre Pompidou (Paris, FRA).
Béatrice Lartigue has won several international awards, including from the Sundance Film Festival (New Frontier Selection: Notes on Blindness), the Lumen Prize (Performance Award: Portée/).
