June 18, 2016: Aire, Visual Concert for Nomads in Poughkeepsie, NY PICTURES and TRAILER



"Aire – Visual Concert for Nomads” is a cinematic, musical and poetic piece created and directed by Javier Moreno (composition, double bass) Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) in collaboration with Isabelle Duverger (animation and projection mapping) that travels through time and space, for those seeking permanently, never having the feeling of forever.

The piece is designed as a site-specific visual concert, conceived from an original musical suite and developed as collaboration into an allegory of images and immersive video mapped projection design on an architectural space.
Exploring the nomadic nature of our lives in a geographical and emotional level, we invite the viewer on an adventure through the senses, where love and traveling are intertwined in an inseparable way, telling the story of the ephemeral and the eternal.
This project, forged in New York, searches new forms of expression within the creative frame of contemporary art. The creation of suggestive atmospheres sustains a collective pulse accentuated by the international diversity of its artists.

WATCH TRAILER:


"Aire – Visual Concert for Nomads” is community event supported by NeighborWorks America and Arts Mid-Hudson, in cooperation with Poughkeepsie Open Studios.
The project is made possible with funds from the Decentralizated Program, a rectand program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and the New York State Legislature, and administrated by Art Mid-Hudson.

April to August 2016: Genius Loci Weimar Video Installation Exhibition


Our latest video installation in Weimar, Germany, in the itinerary exhibition "Genius Loci" at the Goethe National Museum and more (see itinerary below). The installation is designed for the Tempelherrenhaus miniature model.

Created and designed by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger
Artistic Director: Laia Cabrera
Video Mapping & Animation: Isabelle Duverger
Sound Design: Laia Cabrera & Co. and Erica Glyn
Performers: Jonathan Royse Windham
, Catherine Correa, and Rosa Godia Cabrera

The piece is about the transitory nature of life and our intent to grasp, capture the instant. We were inspired by the transformations and history the Tempelherrenhaus has lived through.

April 11 to August 16, 2016

Our latest collaboration with Erica Glyn published in the Huffington Post!

“I felt like Dollars For Thieves was a complete work as opposed to 5 songs stacked back to back and wanted to create a unique experience for the record release party. I asked installation-video-artist Laia Cabrera and animator Isabelle Duverger if they would be interested in collaborating. They loved the EP and suggested we make an album-video. When they showed me what they had done, I was so excited and inspired by the duet between the music and the visuals, I knew we had to do something really special to really show it off. For the release party, we took over Matt Torrey’s bar in Bushwick by projecting the video on their wall of windows and immersed the audience in an epic multimedia journey.” - Erica Glyn with Mike Ragogna, Huffington Post, March 25, 2016

Dec 11-20, 2015: Shifting Gaze by Laia Cabrera & Co at Georgetown Glow!

Shifting Gaze at GLOW will be projected on the main Wall of the Georgetown Canal
as a site-specific immersive video mapped installation.




Shifting Gaze: A film Installation about Choice, Desire and Memory

Laia Cabrera & Co. (Laia Cabrera + Isabelle Duverger) and Erica Glyn, New York, NY.
Location: C&O Canal wall, at 1064 Wisconsin Avenue, NW at the rear of Georgetown Park.



Shifting Gaze is a film-art-music installation about choice, desire and memory conceived and directed by Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) and created in collaboration with Erica Glyn (music, composer and singer) and Isabelle Duverger (animation and mapping). Shifting Gaze is a film about identity, about making choices, a memory in act.

Drawing from the body, faces, urban patterns, nature and remains of activity, the piece explores a notion of choice, linked to desire and memory –choice being the present, memory representing the past and desire, the drive for a future. Underneath these mirrored imageries lie many stories about limits, freedom and self-perception.

This year’s exhibition encourages contemplation of, and interaction with, the natural and built environment. The intimate, historic C&O Canal –a beautiful, meditative waterway reminiscent of Georgetown’s founding as a port town and located just steps from bustling M Street– is the anchor and inspiration for the site-specific works. The C&O Canal, the “spine” of Georgetown, was erected in 1828 to carry goods westward. Today, it is a National Park Service property and a destination for recreation and respite. Visitors are encouraged to reflect as they are transported.

Five local, regional, and international artists will show commissioned light-art works inspired by the historic C&O Canal during the second annual Georgetown GLOW exhibition in Georgetown. In its second year, GLOW will expand from a weekend-long celebration to a 10-day exhibition with works lit nightly from 6-10 pm. In addition to the light works, GLOW 2015 includes an Artists’ Talk on December 12, live entertainment, store promotions and more.
