Amélie and Brice give first BioLab artist talk of the season

Last night, we hosted the first Milieux Speculative Life BioLab artist talk of 2020! Amélie Brindamour (Montréal) and Brice Ammar-Khodja (Paris) spoke about their artistic, research, and collaborative practices.

Amélie recently completed a residency at Milieux that she was co-awarded by the Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques (CQAM) and Milieux. During her talk, she focused on past projects and residencies that brought her to the work she’s been doing at Milieux over the last few months. For years, Amélie has been interested in mycorrhizal structures and envisioning ways that existing human networks can be influenced by them. Thanks to this residency and her time at Milieux, she was able to expand her practice and work with mycelium as a bio-material for the first time. She primarily split her time between the Biolab and MilieuxMake, exploring the sculptural potential of mycelium with Théo Chauvirey and doing electronic circuit research and construction at MilieuxMake.

Brice is a graphic designer and artist with a deeply collaborative and hybrid practice visiting from Paris for 2 weeks.
