Junk Museum

From April 22nd to May 8th (opening on friday April 19th at 6pm), ECALl/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne presents at ECAL (Hall Kudelski) the exhibit “Junk Museum” put together by students from the Bachelor of Photography, following a workshop with Thomas Mailaender (www.thomasmailaender.com)

Transform five tons of junk into images! This was the challenge set forward by french photographer Thomas Mailaender during a two week workshop undertaken by 28 students from the second year Bachelor of Photography headed by Milo Keller. By means of cut, superimposed, hung and projected images, the challenge not only allowed the students to get familiar with the art of scenography and installation but also to introduce a perhaps unexplored domain like sculpture.

“This is not an ordinary exhibit but a collective effort embodied by a interactive and photographic 400 square meter sculpture-terrain built on multiple layers in a huge box. This genuine invitation for the visitor to experiment is also a wonderful container to showcase the students’ work”, explains Thomas Mailaender. This incredible device is paired with a newspaper that the students produced in a few hours to present their work.
