Studio project, ECAL 2015

in MASTER FINE ARTS


From Wednesday, May 27, 2015 to Saturday, July 4, 2015.

A project devised by Stéphanie Moisdon, with the participation of the Master’s course students and teachers. 

In the form of a Bildingsroman (“education novel”) about imagination, or about imagination of education, the exhibition is the venue for a theatre and a choir,  a set, and appearances of forms, objects and characters. The evolving path of this “education novel” has been gradually formed, over a whole year, around an Alain Resnais film, and the unfurled memory of Comte Forbek’s castle, in the spirit of mediaeval times, the spirit of craftsmen of all times.

For several pens to write this light and modern tale of youth, it was important to rely on a few oblique strategies, and travel between experience and immaturity, talent and craft, between personal predispositions and collective ideal.

Workshops led by Valentin Carron, Sylvie Fleury, Tristan Garcia, Stéphane Kropf, Fabian Marti, in collaboration with Lucile Dupraz.

Scenography realized by Denis Savary with Ruben Valdez, and opening credits video by Lisa Stein.

With works by Jérôme Baccaglio, Tina Braegger, Lena Brudieux, Francesco Cagnin, Lucas Erin, Jean Etchevers-Bourgois, Arthur Fouray, Antoine Goudard, Thea Govorchin, Emanuele Marcuccio, Francesco Nazardo, Giulio Scalisi, Tomaso Semenzato, Konstantinos Sotiriou, Lisa Stein, and Linda Voorwinde.
