Brigitte Amarger

La chute / The fall (2021)

Sensitive to ecological issues, visual artist Brigitte Amarger, based in Paris, France, creates artworks by recycling discarded materials, in an eco-responsible zero waste approach. Her practice includes textile and digital techniques, laser cutting and engraving on x-ray, luminescent and reflective media, textile and paper. The Homo Algorithmus series questions the very notion of identity, as experienced in Occident since Aristotle. It was inspired by a reflection from Michael McAlpine about electronic tattoos on the skin and from our bodies already invaded by prosthetics, metallic or textile implants, as revealed by medical imaging. Amarger questions the use of communicating, connected textiles, which integrate technology requiring a source of energy, and the limits of this intimate relationship.
