Jacques Perconte

Born in 1974 - France


Born in 1974 in Grenoble (France), Jacques Perconte lives and works in Paris.

He is well known as one of the pioneers of French internet art. He is among the first artists to have worked on compression codecs. Jacques made his debuts with internet and video art. His first films date back from 1995 and his first internet artworks from 1996.

Even though his works become less and less theoretical, the relation between form and substance remains crucial.

Jacques Perconte works on the forms of fiction on various medias as well as a formal research, focused on the body and the landscape.

Jacques Perconte apparently has a good knowledge of his technology, which serves him when dealing with frame and color. He tries to transform digital technology into a new media, which can be esthetically as rich as any other classical art.
