Yann Leguay is a Brussels-based French Artist. His approach to sound design for installation, performance and film centers on the materiality of sound. Both as visual artist, sound maker and reverse, he has participated in numerous exhibitions and festival in Europe and beyond. He also composes sound tracks for artist's films and participates in choreographic projects (with Ula Sickle, Studio Kabako...).
Yann Leguayʼs work focuses on everything around sound. Materiality, diversion and tautology are the main ingredients of his work. By modifying the reality of the material (as sounds or real objects) he affects the sensibility of the viewer, changing the perception and relation with materiality. His interest on media and the players that work with it is a clear position on what we are making as utopian, wanting to produce perpetual and solid memory. By deconstructing the elements of this human need, he gives an overview and a distance on the global relation we have with objects and memory.
