Mihai Grecu

2023 / Romania

Salle Gilbert-Gaillard

Opening hours :
Tuesday to Saturday, 1pm to 7pm
Sunday from 2pm to 6pm

The work:

Shockwave is a metaphorical reflection on technology and its possible consequences.
With each zoom, the narrative unfolds, revealing complex layers of latent space dreams, representing landscapes and situations entirely generated by artificial intelligence and thematically linked to the beginning of the atomic age. This oscillation between human creativity and computer calculation underscores the dichotomy of the AI era itself, a paradoxical duality that continues to haunt our collective conscience.

As the infinite zoom sinks into the cataclysmic aftermath of nuclear catastrophe, the landscape continually morphs into layers of complex compositions of fragments of AI’s deep dreams.

Shockwave is a metaphorical reminder of the inexorable cost of scientific progress, a reflection on the precipice of annihilation. The fear of AI technology echoes the fears aroused by the development of nuclear technology during the 20th century.

The work:

Mihai Grecu is a romanian visual artist and filmmaker who graduated from Le Fresnoy, Studio National des Arts Contemporains, and lives and works in Paris. Oscillating between experimental cinema and CGI creations, his singular imagery features dreamlike visions crossed by political allegories, surrealist objects, modified architectures and symbolic characters.

He won the Prix du Syndicat Français de la Critique de Cinéma for his documentary work.

His filmic and artistic work has been shown and awarded at numerous film festivals (Rotterdam, Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montreal, Clermont Ferrand, Videobrasil) and exhibitions (“Dans la nuit, des images” at the Grand Palais, “Labyrinth of my mind” at Le Cube, “Studio” at Galerie Les filles du Calvaire, Ars Electronica etc)
