Atelier LABS

When instant composition meet visual art

Atelier LAB is above all a space for experimentation and research, where visual art and instant composition merge. Objects, bodies, sounds, spaces meet and compose instantaneous images. It is a collective composition where each participant brings his own objects and a fragment of his universe.

Atelier LAB was created in October 2017, in Elma Riza’s atelier. It is a research that has developed thanks to the invited artists (Stephanie Hanna, Anne Mundo, Ruben Gonzalez Escudero, Marieke Horstmann, Anna Luella-Zahner, Marta Colombo, Anaïs Edely, Renaud Héléna, Aurélie Pertusot).

Since 2019 Atelier LAB has taken the form of a common research whose heart is a quartet with Anaïs Edely, Renaud Héléna, Aurélie Pertusot and Elma Riza : les actionnaires.

Composition of 20-40 min; Limited choice of objects and materials; Focus and limitations by applying constraints in the form of cards (the 86 Aspects of Composition of Mike Vargas or restrictions developed by members of the collective) and of video framing (the framing of the video is consciously integrated into the collective composition process). The captured composition is publicly presented online in the form of a short video montage or a series of photographies.
