BLPRNT is a new project by visual artist Joanie Lemercier (FR), and sound artist James Ginzburg (UK), commissioned by STRP for this year’s edition of the exhibition.
The work interrogates the notion of blueprint as the intersection of ideation and architecture, a map that leads from formlessness to form. It explores the view of architecture as both the endless repetition of the cosmic order, and as a shelter from the infinite, a human construct that brings the capriciousness of nature into perspective. With BLPRNT, Lemercier and Ginzburg translate the immateriality of space, architecture and causality into a choreography of structural elements. The installation is formed from a central monolithic tower that is flanked by two large screens and activated by light projection and sound. Together, these tell a story of the cosmos and architecture, climaxing in an anamorphosis.
