Zouari’s photographs of strange, sinuous forms took him deep into his psyche. They should do the same for us

Curiosa comprises a series of images depicting colourful, amorphous forms — a cabinet of curiosities conceived of by Andrey Zouari. “I wanted to connect myself to my inner child, free myself from adult knowledge and abandon myself to a spontaneous and raw creative impulse,” says the artist, who worked on the project during a residency in Paris at Le Consulat.

The objects reflect Zouari’s impulses but they should also provoke a primal reaction in us. “The wunderkammer reveals the archetypes buried in the unconscious depths, the premises of the creation of sexual identity,” he says. “Curiosa is an invitation to repair oneself, to free oneself from the gendered roles in which education and life have locked us up.”

This year, one of Zouari’s images was selected for the Baron Prize for Art, and below, the artist discusses his practice and the experience of making Curiosa.

21.11.2019 - Cécile Mestelan - cerâmica (Timeout Portugal)
AV, DI
EXECAL, Association - Expires 31.01.2020
Duas montras à antiga, quase como se fossem molduras, e um letreiro que grita “cerâmica” dão uma amostra óbvia sobre o que se passa para lá da ombreira da porta. Cécile Mestelan abriu, na Calçada da Estrela, uma loja própria onde vende as suas criações feitas à mão, das chávenas aos jarrões.
---
Two old-fashioned shop windows, almost as if they were frames, and a sign that screams "ceramics" give an obvious sample of what goes on beyond the doorway. Cécile Mestelan [ECAL graduate, Master Fine Arts 2013] opened her own shop on Calçada da Estrela, where she sells her handmade creations, from cups to jugs.

Constant requests to visit her studio were multiplied in the email box and Instagram of the French ceramist. "I always thought that having the workshop working as a shop wouldn't work, because then people come in and end up interrupting production and it wouldn't be good for anyone", she explains. "I also had some pieces at ISTO and Out to Lunch, but there was this desire of people to buy and see the pieces, without being by showroom contact."

And at number 3 on Calçada da Estrela, that's where Cécile found the house to house her pieces. Before, there used to be an old-style watch shop there - where the ceramist had even changed batteries of her watch. "I like having a shop with a history, with a remarkable past, and the best thing is that I didn't have to make any big changes", she says.

She painted the interior walls blue-night, adjusted the lighting and let the watch cabinets serve as a showcase for her pieces, from where the soft colours and texture that Cécile gives to the pieces when she mixes sand on the beach with the clay. On the walls she exhibits some of the drawings she did before dedicating herself to ceramics and one of the cabinets displays her first ever pieces - a kind of "career chronology".

Large plates, smaller ones, cups, coffee cups, glasses, boxes or teapots decorate the shelves - all done carefully by hand, making each piece unique. "The time I dedicate to each thing is what makes my pieces worthwhile. No two are the same, and one week there can be one colour and the next not because I don't produce in bulk", she says.

Cécile likes to see the clientele come in and understand what use they will give to this or that piece, because the meaning, she says, "is not static". "If I make a box with a lid on it, some people want to make it into a jewelry box, others use it as an appetizer dish or even as an ashtray. I'm always discovering new uses," she says. The ceramist continues to do everything in her studio and, as before, larger orders are placed by email.

But ceramics are not alone in this space and this is immediately announced by the exterior sign that reads "Tarot". In an interior room, also with an interactive window for the street, is 3str3la3, a space for those who believe in the power of the stars and astrology, with aura and tarot readings (markings: 3str3la3@gmail.com). One of the walls is made of stone, there is a sculpture of a ceramic cat and a table covered with a dark velvet towel - all in medium light - to make it an almost immersive experience.

Every full moon there is a joint event, which leaves the store open until later for tarot visits, and the extension of the timetable for small pop up events of other artists is taken advantage of.

Avec «Phèdre !» et «Conférence de choses», seuls en scène hilarants plébiscités par les grands festivals de théâtre public, l’artiste suisse, fan de Nietzsche et de Clément Rosset, expose sa soif d’étonnement et sa passion pour la transmission des connaissances.
(...)
Par exemple il adore la peinture, qu’il a étudiée à l’Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), avant de bifurquer vers les arts de la scène durant son séjour en Belgique au début des années 2000 : «J’ai découvert là-bas les Jan Fabre, Wim Vandekeybus et Jan Lauwers. Il y a eu un avant et un après.» Il «adore» aussi nombre de ses collaborateurs - les comédiens Pierre Mifsud et Romain Daroles «qui ont en commun de susciter illico l’empathie sur le plateau», mais aussi l’actrice Laetitia Dosch, entre autres, qu’il a secondée dans son one woman show Laetitia fait péter. «D’ailleurs c’est marrant mais je constate que les pièces dans lesquelles il se passe souvent un truc, en ce moment, sont signées par des jeunes femmes : Marion Duval, Marion Siefert, Trân Tran…» - plus tard, il nous enverra une longue liste sur Facebook. Et puis, incontournable, il adore les pièces du duo Grand Magasin, bien sûr, pour qui il a été interprète.

EXECAL, Association - Expires 31.01.2020
Diplômé en Bachelor Arts visuels en 2014 à l'ECAL, Simon Paccaud vit et travaille à Cully, en Suisse.

Peindre, chanter, créer et défendre son territoire sont au cœur de sa pratique. Ses positions sont liées au cadre des structures de contrôle, et s’accompagnent souvent de performances, en particulier musicales.

LIRE AUSSI cet article de Tiziana Ryter (13.6.2018) :
https://dlf.uzh.ch/sites/tourdesuisse/2018/06/13/tour-de-suisse-simon-paccaud/

Extrait :
« Je sais travailler, dessiner, je sais chanter, je sais lire et regarder les gens dans les yeux.» De la propre bouche de l’artiste surgit sa quintessence : la pluralité des médiums et une franchise déterminée. Simon Paccaud touche à tout et cette diversité lui permet de tester et interroger l’idée des limites, des règles et des frontières. La sculpture à travers laquelle il cherche les tensions des différents matériaux; la peinture où il confronte plusieurs supports et techniques comme le thé, la cire ou l’acrylique, enfin et surtout, la musique. «Le lien entre la musique et mon art est total» car tous les deux nés dans la rue. Lorsqu’il suspend ses casquettes Lacoste de rappeur sur un mobile, il explique : le rappeur et le golfeur sont réunis sous l’égide du crocodile. Un espace où «haut» et «bas», Cocteau et Booba, se côtoient et finissent pas s’annuler ou se sublimer. Alors que le mélange des genres peut amoindrir le propos et perdre le spectateur, il parvient à doser très justement leur utilisation et ainsi affiner la réflexion. En mêlant la peinture, le son ou le texte, il détourne l’oeuvre de sa narration première et porte le discours à un autre niveau, plus subtil, plus fort et plus percutant. Il en appelle à tous les sens. L’œil est rudoyé, l’ouïe bousculée et l’envie de toucher oppresse. La synesthésie de son art bouscule la pensée et plonge le spectateur dans un espace subjectif de sensations et réflexions.

AV
EXECAL, Association - Expires 31.01.2020
Le samedi 19 octobre 2019 dans son atelier de Fontenay-sous-Bois, dans le cadre d’un entretien réalisé par Romain Arazm, l’aquarelliste Louise Laffaille [diplômée ECAL, MA-AV 2014] a pu approfondir l’évolution de son travail depuis 2015.

Après s’être formée dans plusieurs écoles d’art qui ne lui ont pas apporté ce qu’elle était venue chercher, l’artiste quitte sa Suisse natale pour s’établir à New York. Elle fait la rencontre du peintre chinois Paul Ching Bor qui deviendra son maître. En plus de l’enseignement technique qu’il lui apporte, ce dernier la familiarise avec la tradition picturale chinoise. Depuis, la peinture de Louise Laffaille constitue une sorte de pont lancé entre deux héritages esthétiques.

Ses compositions abstraites ont fait place aux paysages fantasmatiques que la combinaison de l’eau et de l’aquarelle fait, couche après couche, lentement apparaître.

Très influencée par la poésie de la peinture Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013), la gestualité de celle Fabienne Verdier (née en 1962) mais également la magie des paysages de William Turner (1775-1851) dont elle voit l’exposition au Grand Palais en 2010, Louise Laffaille saisit à son tour les instants éminemment fugaces que la Nature lui offre. Elle nous fait le plaisir de nous les offrir en retour.

Industrial & Product Design, September 2020

Alix Szijartois, born in 1994, is a Swiss designer currently working between London (UK) and Vevey (CH). After a bachelor degree with honour in Industrial & Product Design at ECAL/Ecole Cantonale d‘Art de Lausanne in 2017, she has worked with Doshi Levien and Barber & Osgerby on various light, furniture, textile and scenography projects while continuing to develop her personal projects. She aims at creating innovative objects using the best of man’s hand and machine abilities, challenging the constraints of materials and production processes. Curious and mindful of people’s daily life, she enjoys working on a wide range of projects exploring interactions between behaviour, form and function.

During her residency, she would like to continue to probe the limits between industry and craft, shape and function through studying traditional dyeing techniques and ceramic extrusion. The result of this residency will be a collection of everyday objects, celebrating the plurality of traditional fine craftmanship and innovative contemporary design.


RONG DESIGN LIBRARY RESIDENCY PROGRAM
This Residency Program is co-initiated by Rong Design Library and Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Arts Council. Rong Design Library is the first traditional material library in China. For the past five years, the library has invited 30 designers from more than 10 countries to avail the residency in a village near Hangzhou, China. The cooperation with Pro Helvetia Shanghai is a special project that falls under the umbrella of this residency program. The objective is to create a critical learning environment to stimulate the discovery and rethinking between traditional crafts and contemporary design. It offers residents opportunities to exchange, experience, devote time to their design practice within a dynamic and vibrant environment by cooperating with local artisans.

Pro Helvetia Shanghai will support these four selected Swiss designers to become Rong Design Library’s resident for the period 2019-2020. The candidates will be able to research and study Chinese traditional handicrafts and materials (bamboo, silk, mud, copper, paper, etc.), and combine the learnt techniques with contemporary design. The designers will benefit from visits to crafts workshops, networking opportunities, database resources from the design library, one local assistant, and advisory support from the co-founders of the library.

“Tu viens d’où ? Longtemps, la notion d'identité était une question compliquée. Je suis né dans un petit village au Congo RDC. Mon corps porte encore les traces de ce pays : un doigt coupé accidentellement à la machette, des cicatrices car j’allais toujours pieds nus dans la forêt. Ma mère est hollandaise et mon père français, mais je parlais le swahili en dehors de la maison. Quand j’ai eu 10 ans, on est allé au Burkina Faso pour mon entrée au collège. J’ai vite compris que je ne connaissais presque rien des codes culturels de mes camarades européens : jeux vidéo, vêtements, musiques…je ne savais même pas qui était Michael Jackson. J’ai dû rapidement apprendre à m’adapter. Pendant ce temps, mes amis du Congo ont subi une tragédie que je ne pourrai jamais oublier : 3 mois après notre départ, des soldats rebelles sont arrivés… pillages, massacres ; le seul fait d’en sortir vivant était un véritable miracle. Tout cela m’a influencé dans mon choix de métier : réaliser des documentaires et films d’ONG (avec habarifilms.com). Comme l’a écrit Antoine de Saint-Exupéry : « On est de son enfance comme on est d'un pays. »”

“Where are you from? For a long time the notion of identity was a complicated issue. I was born in a village in Congo DRC. My body still bears traces of this country: a finger accidentally cut off with a machete, scars from walking barefoot in the forest. My mom is Dutch and my father French, but I spoke Swahili outside the home. When I was 10 we moved to Burkina Faso for my junior high. I soon realized that I knew almost nothing about the cultural codes of my European classmates: video games, clothes, music... I didn’t even know who Michael Jackson was. I had to learn to adapt quickly. Meanwhile, my friends in Congo suffered a tragedy that I’ll never forget: 3 months after we left, rebel soldiers arrived ... lootings, massacres; the mere fact of coming out alive was a miracle. All this influenced me in my choice of profession: making documentaries and films for NGOs (with habarifilms.com).

16.10.2019 - Namsa Leuba's vivid portraits capture Tahiti's 'third gender' (CNN Style)
PH
EXECAL, Association - Expires 31.12.2019

In Tahiti, mahu are considered a third or "liminal" gender, born biologically male but recognized by peers as distinct, often from early in their lives. Their gender identity has been accepted on the island since time immemorial, and mahu traditionally play key social and spiritual roles, as guardians of cultural rituals and dances, or providers of care for children and elders.

Leuba's new photo series, "Illusions: The Myth of the 'Vahine' through Gender Dysphoria," shows the diversity of gender identities in French Polynesia, where the photographer spends half her year.

In a telephone interview from Tahiti, Leuba said the additional power that the Mahu apparently possess is difficult to describe. It is, she explained, a mixture of empathy, intuition, generosity and creativity -- all words that might be applied to Leuba's wide-ranging photography.

This year’s edition of the avant garde photo art fair Unseen featured 140 exhibitors in total. There were 53 galleries from around the world showcasing artists, including 19 galleries exhibiting for the first time.

David FAVROD
The Ibasho gallery exhibited artist David Favrod, who is of Swiss-Japanese heritage but is currently based in Spain. His work combines manga and anime-style drawings with photography. He usually starts by sketching. Or, in the case of an artwork titled The Fall (La Chute), by digging a hole for a week.

As there was a boulder beneath where he began digging, he used Photoshop to make the hole look deeper. After scanning the photograph, and 2,500 hours of Photoshop drawing later, the image was finished.

His surreal work A Shower of Sardines, meanwhile, resembles Magritte in a manga style.

Salomón Pérez (Trujillo, Peru, 1989) starts in the feature film with "En medio del laberinto" (In the middle of the labyrinth), a film from Trujillo that takes place in the urban universe of three DIY teenagers. Between skaters and rock bands, the self-absorption of this stage of life of searches and discoveries is imposed.

(...) "In 2015 I started to study at ECAL (École cantonale d'art de Lausanne), a school located in the French part of Switzerland.

Entering ECAL was very rigorous, as they only choose 8 or 9 students per room, and one room is opened per year. During the three years of training I met people from other parts of the world (Greece, Mexico, Cuba, France) and I had teachers who have marked me a lot, like Roland Cosandey, who is a film historian and collaborator in the Cinémathèque Suisse.
The school curriculum offered me two exchanges; the first in L'INIS in Canada, where we were in the production of the Festival de Nouveau Cinéma in Montréal. Then I went to La Fémis in France to make the sound mix for my end-of-study short film." (...)

En pirogue ou en boguet, Yann GROSS remonte le cours des récits inhérents ou importés qui forgent une communauté. Si œil et objectif captent et traduisent, ce qu’ils révèlent des mythes d’une Amazonie spectrale ou d’un Valais profond féru d’Amérique relève d’une écoute patiente qui sait la nécessité d’une implication au plus proche de ses sujets tout en reconnaissant l’ambivalence permanente de l’observateur externe. A trop louer l’anthropologue en lui, on ne ferait toutefois pas assez honneur à l’artiste, conscient comme peu de l’importance des choix esthétiques dans la transmission de narratifs et d’expériences, et à l’expérimentateur technique, féru des processus de développement photographique les plus alchimiques.

À la fois tricéphale, par les membres qui constituent le studio, et double, par leurs statuts d’artistes et de designers, Fragmentin représente à merveille une génération curieuse et avide de transversalité.

Mêlant avec aisance les technologies numériques à toute la subjectivité du réel, Laura PERRENOUD, Marc DUBOIS et David COLOMBINI questionnent sans relâche les relations toujours plus intimes entre monde digital et vie quotidienne. Leurs installations, souvent performatives, mêlent de manière assumée intelligence et sensibilité.

L’influence de la technologie sur le paysage ou le fantasme de maîtriser les éléments météorologiques deviennent à travers divers logiciels, les lignes de code et les soudures des interfaces de débats publics qui jamais n’excluent une certaine poésie romantique.
