          is pleased to present TIDES, a solo exhibition by visual artist and member of online art collective Computers Club, Nicolas Sassoon.

The work of Nicolas Sassoon revolves around the relations between computers, architectures, landscapes and domestic environments. Nicolas’ practice uses the Internet and its online essence for visual experimentation which often takes the form of optical animated gifs.
TIDES, the project conceived for his first solo show at, originates from a recent permanence of the artist in Biarritz, a charming city on the French Atlantic coast. The city and its surroundings, the sea and its movements constitute the point of departure for TIDES.
The project features 6 animations inspired from fading memories of the ocean surface and evolve itself through a repetitive aesthetic almost recalling the water pattern and its endless flow.
Every animation in the show is named after a state of the tide, when thin layers of water slowly expand and retreat over large areas of sand creating always new and unexpected forms.
