Chloé Azzopardi. A Review.

Camille Ines Relet responds to "Non Technological Devices" a photographic and dimensionally interactive solo exhibition by Chloé Azzopardi. Reflecting on Chloé's ''silent but striking' work, Camille observes the ways in which the photographs themselves become non-technological apparatus for ecological renewal, and reinterpret the line between the imagined and the real.

On Non Technological Devices

An interview with the artist and creator of said devices, Chloé Azzopardi with words by Sam Cashmore. Chloé reveals her subconscious science fiction influence, her experimental process in collaboration with living creatures of all kinds, and how joy can overcome obstacles.

Playing ‘Tech’ in a world without ressources

Text by Felipe Abreu and Christine Almlund.

French artist Chloé Azzopardi Incorporates sculpture and performance into her photography as she ponders on the future. Her project Non Technological Devices takes us on an imaginary, futuristic journey as she introduces us to her creative world of self made low-tech sci-fi sculptures made out of found natural materials. The sculptures function as extensions of the body, echoing the idea of cyborgs. Her work playfully intervenes and disrupts our common imaginaries about the future of technology, sci-fi and imagination in a climate and technology driven world stripped of ressources.

  «Non technological devices» are composite tools made from gleaned natural elements, assembled to mimic the technological devices that populate our daily lives. Between rudimentary productions and science-fiction creations, these objects are as much prolongations of bodies as they are hindrances. Associated with invented artefacts whose use remains to be discovered, they create together a fictional universe that functions as a mirror held up to our fantasies of the future.
  With this project the artist wishes to create new desires, to generate images that can be resources for our imaginaries.

    How can we show an alternative future in the face of our dreams of a hyper-artificialized and technologized world? Using fiction and play, Azzopardi seeks other ways of imagining augmented lives, creating organic cyborgs whose aim would be to inscribe the body differently in the environment. She uses the poetic diversion of artefacts that are symbols of technical progress to question our relationship with the living and the disappearance of the earthly "resources" used to build the components of our technological objects.   Dealing with human intervention on nature, our relationship to technology and the overexploitation of the planet, this research explore other forms of cohabitation with the earthly living and opens up avenues of reflection on what could be an iconography of ecological self-defence.
