Founded by the artist/researcher and exhibition curator Judith Guez, Recto
is an international Art and Virtual Reality festival in Laval, France.
As part of Recto VRso, the official ‘Art&VR Gallery’ exhibition presents artworks selected by Judith Guez after an international call for projects (2020 - 2021 theme: Real body/Virtual body).
Because of COVID restrictions, Judith Guez decided to experiment another way to present the scenography and artworks planned for 2020 edition: a virtual exhibition of the Art&VR Gallery of Recto VRso 2020.
With her team, they created a 3D model of this space and elements of the planned scenography, and imagined an interpretation
of each artwork
in the virtual space, based on some elements provided by the artists.
