Fred Périé


After his scientific education, Fred Périé is involved in the mechanical behavior of materials and he is struck by the forms that emerge from instability phenomena. Yet it is with the question of the relationship with the other that he commits to a visual search with two mediums, interventions in the landscape and new multimedia installations, for which he himself writes the code.

Yet, in 2005, it is with the question of the relationship to the other, that he begins a visual search with two mediums, interventions in the landscape and new media installations, for which he writes the computer codes himself.

Both of them invoke very often an ephemeral image that reflects the public, its body or its gaze. Then this process led Fred Périé to the cinema, the place where, while watching the film, emerges a silent link with the others. He also takes advantage of modern techniques, those that make us so much believe in our power over things, but when he uses interactivity, which is more or less some kind of mirror, it is to reveal what is really at stake, i.e. our ability to project ourselves into the situation.

His works have been shown in digital art centers in France, such as Le Cube in 2008 and [ars]numerica in 2007. Is this here? Has been exhibited at Bouillants Festival #3 in 2011 and nominated at the FILE Festival in Brazil in 2010. What if, there underneath..., was exhibited at the Computer Art Congress (CAC3) at le 104 in Paris in November 2012. In 2014, he created La Démesure du Possible, an interactive work for people in nursing homes. Since 2015, he has directed a documentary film which is also a digital installation for the movie theater: L'autre de l'autre.
