#Immersive concert
Evian Christ (Liverpool)  

Producer, DJ and composer Evian Christ is signed to Tri Angle Records, Warp Records, Very Good Beats, and Donda (Kanye West’s publishing house, with which he collaborated on the album Yeezus). His live shows are created in collaboration with the artist Emmanuel Biard, who designs backdrops filled with lights, lasers and glass. Few days after the release of his new album REVANCHIST, the multi-talented don of the electronic scene and master of the underground will cap off the opening day of Biennale Némo with a live techno-trance performance.

Franck Vigroux & Antoine Schmitt

Composer Franck Vigroux and visual artist Antoine Schmitt are two of the emblematic artists of the Némo Biennial. Opening with Franck Vigroux’s new album on the legendary Raster-Noton label, the duo will present VIDEOSCOPE, possibly the most powerful of their maximalist shows. Without neglecting a certain melodic euphoria, they will transform our minds into machines, on an infinite journey through space and time on the autobahns of a world undergoing profound transformation.

#Audiovisual Performance
Meuko! Meuko! & Noneye (Taïpeï)  

Meuko! Meuko! is a young Taiwanese producer who combines clubbing, odd sounds, improvisation and ritual performances that hearken back to the spiritual landscapes of Taiwan. Against the backdrop of images and 3D animation by Noneye, she crafts a visual and aural experience that shifts between Taoist gods, gaming, decadent urban landscapes reclaimed by nature, and hellish metaverses….

#Installation lumineuse
Maxime Houot (Collectif Coin)

In Ataraxie (meaning “peace of spirit”), Maxime Houot enthralls the audience with a hypnotic, meditative sequence set in motion by an installation spanning over 30 meters. Sprawling, mechanical arms perform a ten-minute choreography with a series of immersive scenes. Starting off like a slow boat on a calm sea, the performance gradually takes possession of the entire space and closes with an astonishing finale.

Performance at 2:00pm, installation all day long until 11:00pm

I is an other ?

At the heart of Biennale Némo 2023 is the question of multiple identities. The main exhibition at CENTQUATRE-PARIS offers an impressionistic journey through a succession of aesthetically spectacular works, playful creations, videos, and installations that approach the many facets of the digital age from a critical, informative perspective.

Opening from 2:00pm to 8:00pm Ouverture de l’exposition de 14h à 20h. Exceptionnal free access.
