My name is Bérénice Courtin, I am a multidisciplinary artist from Paris, based in Geneva and Barcelona, after my Master in Contemporary Applied Arts at the school Massana in Barcelona and an exchange in Geneva, in Switzerland, at the school HEAD. I am focused on textile arts, audio-visuals and performance. I’ve been collaborating recently with international artists for a project I’ve been working on for the past two years, talking about my grand father Kazimierz Gaca. He was a polish resistant during the Second World War, working with the ENIGMA machine. I made fabrics with a digital Jacquard loom (TC2), were I hid codes, inspired by the ENIGMA secret messages, comparing the loom and the ENIGMA machine, as both being the origins of the computer and the binary code. We also created a performance of experimental cinema on this subject that we presented at the festival La Alternativa, at CCCB in Barcelona.
