Anne-F Jacques — Quelque chose qui accroche
Anne-F Jacques is a sound artist based in Montreal, Canada. She is interested in amplification, oblique interactions between materials and construction of various contraptions and idiosyncratic systems. Her particular focus is on low technology, trivial objects and unpolished sounds. She regularly realizes installations, performances and ephemeral interventions and gives workshops about domestic applicances hacking. She has worked amongst others with Tsonami Festival (Chile), Experimental Intermedia (New York), Ftarri (Tokyo), CTM (Berlin), Umbral (Mexico), Centrale for Contemporary Arts (Brussels), High Zero (Baltimore) and MEM (Bilbao).
Small events and accidents, extremely amplified: Something gone wrong is a performance that follows and provokes interactions between rocks, motors, pipes, seaweed and other materials, assembled together in precarious moving contraptions.
