La ville qui n'existait pas

Four new projects are planned for 2024: Firstly, a series of 3D-printed purple concrete structures, bringing to life in the real city the shapes seen on the 25,000 unique postcards distributed in 2023.

As the artist’s second offering, these postcards will be the subject of an installation at the MuMa, to complement the “Photographier en Normandie” (Photography in Normandy) exhibition organised by the museum as part of the Normandy Impressionist Festival. The installation will feature the artist’s AI-generated voice, describing and analysing the 25,000 postcard images distributed in 2023. To train the AI, the artist fed it critical and historical texts on the history of art and photography.

In addition, Grégory Chatonsky has produced an animated film, also co-created with the help of AI, which this time brings to life a number of the scenes depicted on the postcards of this “City that did not exist”. This poetic, yet surreal, rather sinister film will be shown in the Théâtre de l’Hôtel de Ville gallery. 

Finally, 25,000 new unique, numbered postcards will be distributed this summer, this time featuring the inhabitants of this “City that did not exist” in scenes created by AI.
