This fall, Louviere + Vanessa will transform Candela Books + Gallery into an immersive, multi-sensory environment, incorporating animated vinyl record, film, and abstract photographs. Their new series, Resonantia is a reflection of their extensive exploration through a multitude of media, blurring the line between sight and sound.

Resonantia encompasses 12 photographs that pointedly capture the changes in traveling compression waves, depicting the 12 basal notes of music. Their evolving concept of crossing the sensory barrier further led to the conversion of photographs into otherworldly soundscapes. Louviere + Vanessa’s multidisciplinary approach came full circle by re-visualizing all 12 photo-tones in the form of spectrograms. This artistic fusion encourages visitors to reconsider the experimental possibilities between sound and photography and to reflect on the transformation of the normally invisible.

 

Their harmonic exploration across photography and music translates into audible imagery that unifies the visceral senses of the time-based medium sound and the space-based form of photography.

“We believe that the standard dogma—everything has been done before—is false. Despite finite colors, sounds, subjects and material, an artist’s curiosity and delight creates the fathomless. Science and art share the same fascination with the infinite and seek to describe it with the finite.” – L+V

The artistic duo has been continually dedicated to expanding their creative partnership over the past 12 years. The couple’s collaborative creations have been exhibited nationally and abroad. Their work is among private and public collections, including the Museum of Art | Houston, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and the George Eastman House.

Experience this all-encompassing, atmospheric work for yourself.

A preview reception & artist talk will take place Thursday, September 3, 5-8pm. The exhibition will open to the public Friday, September 4, 5-9pm.
