Clarice Calvo-Pinsolle Research Artist

Clarice Calvo-Pinsolle is a french artist based in Brussels.

A part of her artistic practice comes from a desire to reflect on the transmission and safeguarding of memories. It is an open investigation at the crossroads of a sound and sculptural practice.

She creates installations that question the viewer's perception mechanisms. She tries to appeal to memories through narratives established between the objects that she used and the sounds that she broadcasts through them. Each sculpture / object is thought for its acoustic quality and its physicality in space. This physicality allows her to question the exhibition space as well as the stroll through it.

Field recording is the best way for her to archive her present. She captures a lot of sounds and uses them for her music and installations. These field recordings allow her to capture situations, decontextualize them and reintroduce them into new contexts in order to create new situations.

These installations constantly juggle between sounds and objects and together have a capacity to recreate new memories. They become representations of the field of hearing, extensions of the human body, they often guide a posture of listening to the viewer. In some cases, these are appendages for listening that amplify and modify our perceptions.
