MOMENTA | Biennale de l'image is pleased to announce the launch of its first educational video game for children aged 9 to 12. Entitled The Gallery of mysteries, this educational video game was born from the collaboration between MOMENTA | Image Biennale and Dpt., An interactive creation studio.

Game synopsis

The Gallery of Mysteries has always existed. No one knows when this art gallery, lost in the woods, was built or to whom it belongs. Legends surround this strange and fascinating place. Out of friendship for Nour, who lost his camera while daring to venture into the Gallery of Mysteries, the young people set off in search of the lost object. To get it back, they will have to complete the challenges of the Gallery of Mysteries.

By venturing into the Gallery of Mysteries, young people discover works by artists Dominique Blain, Raphaëlle de Groot, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Jinyoung Kim, Emmanuelle Léonard, Caroline Monnet, Nadia Myre, Juan Ortiz-Apuy, Karine Payette, Celia Perrin Sidarous, Yann Pocreau and zipertatou.

Realization context

Having noticed that in elementary schools there were few digital educational tools dedicated to initiating students to contemporary art, and particularly to Quebec art, MOMENTA | Biennale de l'image has set out to create a new tool for teachers. This interactive experience of approximately 30 minutes was designed to introduce students in grades 4, 5 and 6 to contemporary works by Quebec and Quebec artists. The educational objective is to develop the sense of observation of children, to get them to express themselves on the works and to stimulate their critical sense. Offered in both official languages and offered free of charge, the game is a great parent-child activity or a stimulating art appreciation activity for students in the classroom.
