Le 149, digital translations

Digital space, www.le149.net, founded in Geneva in 2018
Le 149 is a digital art space that produces and broadcasts the fruit of collaborations between artists and web developers. Without physical embodiment, the platform offers a series of in situ works, produced specifically for Le 149 via invitation by the curatorial team. Working with artists whose practice is usually part of the analog world, every new production requires taking the time to revisit on an individual basis the translation of each work in its move to a numerical universe. Le 149 does not simply transpose into a digital reality works or their documentation. On the contrary, the space takes into account all the possibilities specific to the digital environment in order to lead a continuous reflection on what the exhibition can become, the nature of collaborations, and the form of the exchange with the public. Always in movement, Le 149 evolves, tests tools and invents ways to build bridges between those two realities that accompany us daily.
