Abstract (English)

This catalogue presents the work of two artists who use the body to explore the relationship between art and technology. Underlining the artists’ preoccupation with the control technology has over our lives, author Forsyth discusses Stone’s installation (which shows the influence of technology on the transformation of the body) and McKeough’s work (an investigation of fear through a performance combining images and sounds with human voice and gestures.) Text in English and French. Biographical notes on artists and author. 4 bibl. ref.

Résumé

Ce catalogue présente le travail de deux artistes qui utilisent le corps dans leur exploration des rapports entre l'art et la technologie. Forsyth souligne comment les œuvres traitent du contrôle exercé par les technologies sur nos vies : elle commente l'installation de Stone, qui met en évidence l’influence de la technologie sur la transformation du corps, et la performance de McKeough, qui combine images, sons, voix et gestes pour traiter du thème de la peur. Textes en français et en anglais; notices biographiques des artistes et de l'auteure. 4 réf. bibl.
