Hugo Arcier, Ghost City, 2016, installation view, Lux Scène Nationale Valence (c) Hugo Arcier
In Hugo Arcier's new installation, the architecture of Grand Theft Auto becomes a reflective and ruminative experience. Inspired by Lucrece's De rerum natura, Ghost City immerses the viewer in a phantasmatic urban environment, devoid of (artificial) life. The atmospheric score by Bernard Szajner makes the experience eerie and haunting. This installation was recently presented at (the aptly titled) solo show Fantômes numériques (digital ghosts) at Lux Scène Nationale Valence and it will be on display until July 9 along with other Arcier's works, including FPS (2016) and 11 Executions (2011). Truly fascinating.
