Through a prolific practice that intertwines sound art, video art, generative art, and programming, Élise Voët establishes connections between image and sound to create immersive experiences within multimedia and audiovisual installations. Her works are characterized by a contemplative, radiographic approach, involving the suspension or elongation of time. Heavily influenced by the themes of science fiction and anticipation, the subject of ruin systematically finds its way into her pieces and landscapes, creating cycles of exhaustion and regeneration. Her installation practice incorporates significant work in composition, spatialization, and orchestration, spanning from the microscopic to the monumental scale.

Her creative process, akin to that of a laboratory, involves collecting and capturing data to study and translate phenomena inspired by our natural environment. This laboratory yields samples considered as fragments, often diversified, reactivated, and reused. These fragments fuel compositions in the form of immersive video, sound installations, or audio-theatrical experiences within experiential spaces and virtual realms.

Elise Voët pursued artistic studies and a journey through Périgueux, Toulouse, Paris, Angoulême, Bourges, Montreal, and Nantes, developing a self-taught interest in music and programming over the years. As a versatile artist, she blends drawings, orchestrated and performed music, video, kinetic sculptures, programming, and electronics in her installations.

In 2020, she earned her DNSEP at the ENSA de Bourges with honors from the jury, leading her to join the Felicità – Goodbye Horses residency and an exhibition at Poush, Manifesto in 2021. In the same year, she published her thesis online, incorporating a collection of anticipation micro-fictions.


Influenced by the work of Andrei Tarkovsky and video art, Elise Voët’s works are characterized by a contemplative, radiographic approach involving the suspension or elongation of time. Through image manipulation and a melancholic atmospheric writing, the theme of ruin systematically finds its way into her pieces, creating cycles of exhaustion and regeneration.

The nature and landscapes, a central theme, are imbued with concerns related to the upheavals in our environment, its mutations, and the depletion of the world as we know it. A materialistic exploration of solid and liquid states, a sublime aesthetic, reveals a fascination for monumental imagery, coupled with the use of new technologies.

As a vehicle for change, a prism of memory and consciousness, a witness to time; water takes an almost omnipresent place in Elise Voët’s works.

Her installation practice incorporates significant work in the composition, spatialization, and orchestration of her fragments into visual and sonic landscapes, spanning from the microscopic to the monumental scale. Sound takes on physical form in space, transporting the imaginary, and invoking sensations.

By embarking on a research journey with her new series “Phonèmes,” Elise Voët invites the workshop and laboratory into immersive experiences that elevate the senses of the visitors. Sound and musical writing, relatively recent in Voët’s works, provide a fertile new ground for production, blending kulning, experimental electronic music, metal influences, a scattered practice of various instruments, and ethereal singing.

Her eclectic interests lead her to intersect media and mediums in an experimental creative process, naturally embracing techniques and tools of digital creation. By participating in the “doing together” ethos of the free culture, she uses generative art to create creation paradigms and programming to open up online dialogue spaces. She attaches importance to transmitting these skills and the appropriation of ubiquitous technologies through workshops.

For several years, her research has revolved around the challenges of science fiction and anticipation, which significantly color her laboratory. Above all, her primary focus is on humans, their perception, the activation and stimulation of their senses, and the potential narratives of their becoming.

Currently, alongside Nino Lasne, she is developing the project “An·hydra·n” as part of the Digital Arts, Sound Arts, and New Writing Residencies at Château Ephémère, Carrières-sous-Poissy. This project is a recipient of the production grant from Transcultures / Pépinières Européennes de Création, whose partnership allows her to showcase “Transmutation” in their Emergences Sonores selection at the Zone Libre sound arts festival in Bastia in 2023.

Château Éphémère – Sound & digital factory

Supported by the Greater Paris Seine & Oise Urban Community, the Château Vanderbilt rehabilitation project was awarded to the Caserne Éphémère association, which for more than 25 years has been pursuing the objective of transforming abandoned spaces into places of artistic imagination. Two years of study were necessary to revive this Anglo-Norman residence and give it an innovative artistic boost. Only 3 years, to pass from the stage of reflection realization.

Place of residences and digital creation, Château Éphémère has offered, since November 2014 and over 2000 m2, more than a dozen workshops with a creative vocation, artistic residences, a digital laboratory as well as spaces for transmission and exchange.

Once a year, Château Éphémère launches a open call for candidatures to sound and digital artists wishing to benefit from privileged support which combines production grants, workspace, accommodation and the provision of a quality technical park. However, throughout the year, the Château Éphémère welcomes artists carrying out innovative projects and needing space to carry it out for shorter periods.
