Eric Vernhes

Eric Vernhes creates kinetic, visual or sound devices and installations whose behaviour he programs according to self-generative, interactive or hybrid logic. Initially an architect, then a scriptwriter, filmmaker and musician, Eric Vernhes has developed a career as a multidisciplinary artist with a resolutely humanist approach. The digital processes he uses are extracted from their technical context to serve a timeless discourse inspired by literature and philosophy. The demanding aesthetics, as well as the use of noble materials, move us away from the manufacturing processes of engineering to bring us closer to the humanity of the gesture. Eric Vernhes thus makes anthropoid creations exist: the proper movement of the works, by marrying that of our conscience, also seems to embrace our own humanity and gives us the spectacle of it. Eric Vernhes' work is shown in international exhibitions, art centres and foundations. He also creates scenographic and visual creations in live performance and teaches technological arts.

His work is part of several private collections and foundations, including the Hermès Foundation (FR), the Frankel Foundation (USA) and Artphilein Foundation (CH).
