Winner of the call for projects: artistic creation and AI
The winner is Magali Desbazeille
The IA project, 45 quick and easy everyday recipes by Magali Desbazeille was unanimously selected by the jury composed of the respective teams of the Quai des Savoirs and the Atelier Arts Sciences /Hexagone Scène Nationale Arts Sciences. It is following the seminars of the Groupe Artistique d’Exploration Scientifique (GAES) on the theme of artificial intelligence (AI) that this call for projects for the creation of a small form of live performance on the theme of AI was launched. The Atelier Arts Sciences and Le Quai des Savoirs welcome artists in residence and work on interdisciplinary projects that address issues related to the future. The cross-fertilization of artists and scientists imaginations contributes to the creation of new narratives of the future.
Magali Desbazeille’s performance will be presented at the Lumières sur le Quai festival (Toulouse) from 15 October to 6 November 2022 and at EXPERIMENTA, the Arts Sciences Biennial (Grenoble) in October 2022. Beforehand, she will benefit from a residency in Toulouse and Grenoble where she will meet researchers from ANITI and MIAI.
Magali Desbazeille is an artist and performer, with a background in visual arts (Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains – Tourcoing, Diplôme de l’Ecole nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts – Paris, Hunter College – Master of Fine Art program, Colin-Lefranc Fellowship, New-York) and performing arts (Master 2 research – creation of performing arts, Grenoble-Alpes University). Her work is multidisciplinary, notably between documentary and fiction and visual and performing arts. Two of her key performances are Your Opinion Matters #2 and Not at all satisfied, rather satisfied, quite satisfied. She also questions the influence of technology on our language and, in the context of this project, the ethics of artificial intelligence through its representations and the discrimination it induces.
To this end, she asks “What if artificial intelligences were a reflection of our own representations?
