Presentation

Contemporary art is a richly varied field in which professions and specialisations are constantly being redefined. This programme is for holders of a Bachelor’s degree who are passionate about various aspects of this discipline – be it as an artistic practice or through a more theoretical, curatorial approach. This Master offers a unique opportunity to gain insider understanding of the contemporary art scene by experiencing its mechanisms as one of its fully-fledged actors art scene.

In particular, students are invited to temporarily join an institution of their choice so as to study the latter’s procedures and people who gravitate around them. The results of this research may be presented in the form of an artwork, exhibition project or publication. In the framework of courses provided on the ECAL premises by renowned practitioners and theoreticians, the students are involved in workshops, research work and exhibition development. They also have the benefit of the ECAL multidisciplinary course of lectures.

From pure artistic practice to exhibition curatorship, via writing, teaching or research, the range of opportunities is all the wider by creating an exceptional portfolio.

Usefulless

FINE ARTS

Usefulless

Other with Ricca

In his essay,  Theory of Metamorphosis , philosopher Emanuele Coccia celebrates the “power of caterpillars” allowing them to transition from one existence to another without having to die first nor being born again. The caterpillar thus in its full autonomy shakes up the natural order of things. This in-between state materializes in the cocoon, an intermediate yet complete stage, totalizing more than the sum of two halves. The cocoon is a circumscribed territory which has no limits, not completely life, not totally death. This solipsistic space is plural, it is host to the liquid form, embracing simultaneity and different realities. The artworks presented here echo the principle of transition which govern this exhibition. Through their relationship to space or how they question the function of an art object, through the staging of intimacy, these works identify a limit and almost mechanically, ask what lies beyond. Usefulless  is a quality specific to useful objects that are nowhere to be found when needed. Opening a middle way through the binary definition  useful/useless , the term  usefulless  defines a transitional state of utility. Here inside the exhibition, the influence of context reveals the intrinsic ambivalence of objects, useful only based on a need, at a given time, for something or to someone.  Usefulless  opens a dialogue between the works of the students of the Master Fine Arts at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne and pieces from artists whose respective practices explore similar avenues.

Symposium KILL Yr IDOLS

Symposium KILL Yr IDOLS

KILL Yr IDOLS The 20th century invented youth. It has inspired the century in all matters, it has become its horizon. We move forward according to its tastes. Until the end of the World War II, youth was thus only rarely considered, as if in a transitory state, stuck in an awkward age. Then, all of a sudden, with the rise of pop culture, the market economy started to seduce it. A phenomenon that was long regarded as an embarrassing growth spurt ended up dominating the world. The 21th century is nineteen, twenty years old. And youth still remains a mystery. One relishes to conceptualize and historicize it. One also knows that youth never stops to toss and turn. It exists in order to produce moments, ideas (immediately subjected to aging), new gestures, or which youth believes to be new? Amnesiacs are the content ones. One must see how the history of youth has been sketched in the last century, as a straight line, or maybe in successive layers, strata, sedimentations. Less than a century has produced a tome of attitudes that describe each and every generation, the way they took possession of the cultural field, of trends, languages, postures and all theses signs that aim to destroy the next generation (in order to provide new space for the possible). Invariants stand in the midst of all this nonetheless: the same doubts, rage, opposition, unease, fake arrogance, discoveries and the same gold. Politicized, or at least concerned, youth 2.0 is soaked in a yet to be analyzed opposition between the speed rate of its exchanges that it constantly develops further and a desire to tame late capitalism's irrevocable damages: the disintegration of the planet and its climate. Outpacing capitalist realism might well have become the new horizon of a youth that was formed by its very capabilities of speed. In this setup, what are the new postures, ideas, excesses and transformations that are – again and again – capable of inventing youth? How will the new emerge if we remain at the core of an exhausting recommencement ? Philippe Azoury

Né à Neuilly-sur-Seine en 1963, Pierre Bismuth est un artiste contemporain qui s’intéresse à la règle comme manifestation essentielle de l’activité humaine. Son travail, qui couvre des champs de connaissance très divers, se nourrit des lois inhérentes de chaque système auquel il s’intéresse, dans le but de trouver leur point de rupture. En 2005, il remporte avec Michel Gondry et Charlie Kaufman l’Oscar du meilleur scénario original pour son synopsis de  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind . Where is Rocky II ?

Lors de la cérémonie des diplômes Bachelor et Master qui a eu lieu fin juin, l'ECAL/Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne a remis à trois étudiants de 1re et 2e années du Master Arts Visuels – Gabriele Garavaglia, Vinzenz Meyner et Catarina Bota Lea – les «clés» d'une résidence d'artistes à Mexico City. SOMA est un espace d'art contemporain qui vise à s'imposer comme un contrepoint dynamique aux écoles, musées et galeries du Mexique. Il est né à l'initiative d'un groupe d'artistes mexicains qui, en s'appuyant sur les expériences des précédentes espaces d'art, comme La Panadería et Temístoclés 44, ont uni leurs forces pour créer une plateforme unique au sein de la scène culturelle. La mission de SOMA est d'encourager le dialogue, la collaboration et même la confrontation entre artistes et producteurs culturels de différents horizons et générations.

Jérôme Wilfredo Baccaglio ,  Logos for Drones and Such... I created a catalogue for drone logos. It gathers a heterogenous iconography (invented, drawn, found) whose every motif is available for purchase as a canvas, a tattoo, a drawing or a sticker. This is an oblique strategy adopted to talk about the interpretation of an image (as the spectator, or as the artist, to assign it a meaning, a name); the versus created by hand-made work and a digital image; mercantilism; the matter of copyright and its role in an information-infested era. Tina Braegger,   Fasanenstrasse 30 I made an architectural model of white cardboard, placed on four white metal legs. I decorated the model with white curtains that flow over the model down to the floor. Inside the model, I put old toys of mine, objects that originally belong to a doll’s house. By attaching the legs directly to the model, it looks like a table. I wanted to create something surreal, like a dream; the objects inside the model are slightly too big, and the model bleeds off as the curtains overflow.

Julien Gremaud ,  The Big Picture Two wallpapers face each other. They are very white, their black lines are basic. The templates have been done. It was questioned whether the surfaces should be solid or empty, filled with monochromy or blocks of primary colour. One can always enlarge them if necessary. These are ai files. One no longer needs a Hasselblad camera. There is not a whole lot left of the source image. By the way: photography wants to appropriate space. But we are still unable to do so. Eventually, the finishings, very weighty. I promise you Johanne, I will take some pictures for our collaboration’s archives. Emanuele Marcuccio ,  Untitled (Serve the Servants) This is a partial truth, a fragment of my understanding, my sense of things. Being alone in the office, being alone in the library, being alone in the studio is still about a certain notion of improving. I have this impulse that pushes me right in the situation that makes me improve. Well then, I feel specially special. Photo credit : ECAL/Axel Crettenand.

Ange-Frédéric Koffi – La maison est notre coin du monde

Diploma project by Ange-Frédéric Koffi

According to Gaston Bachelard, the house is the physical space that reflects our internal world. We learn to inhabit the house with its traditional inhabitants: the bed, the kitchen table, the doors and windows, the fences, etc. My graduation project, La maison est notre coin du monde (“The House is our Corner of the World”), focuses on one of the oldest pieces of furniture in the world: the folding screen. I question the relationship we have with this domestic object in our home, which is defined as a “shield of beauty”.

Ines Maestre – I Know How Soft Your Body Is I Scratched My Hands With It

Diploma project by Ines Maestre

Mention Très bien Desire is the engine that drives human life. Desire takes us out of ourselves, makes us dream, makes us excessive, leads us astray. It makes us live in improvisation, disorder and craving, which are the highest expressions of freedom taken to their paroxysm. Desire vindicates life, pleasure, self-realisation and freedom. The work highlights a duality of what is considered good or bad in parallel with the idea of love and desire, since both can coexist but do not seek the same thing. By playing with oppositions between different materials and forms that function as metaphors, the work highlights the price we must pay when the object we desire may not be the best for us, even if it satisfies our appetite.

La festa degli innocenti

Diploma project by Andrea Vescovi (Colletivo Silencio, in collaboration with Stefano Baldini)

The Feast of the Innocents is a show born from research we carried out between Savona and Renens, the former city being where we grew up, the latter where we now live. The path that led us to establish a parallel was based on the collection of stories and testimonies of those who lived in these two provinces, which although distant, are linked by strong yet silent similarities. The stories of retirees, immigrants and workers challenged our position in this flow. We therefore tried, by unravelling the relationships with the past, to weave one with the present, paving the way for a concrete search for a community. These stories are interwoven with our experience in the form of projections, music and verbal narration.

Simone Nicola Filippo – For My Girl and My World, Love From Jamie XXX

Diploma project by Simone Nicola Filippo

My work visually explores themes of loneliness, para-social relationships and emotional frustration. These near-monochromes in oil evoke images of distant memories, similar to the stains one might find on the inside of a pillow after years of sleep and cold sweat, memories of online interactions, visual summaries from a mass of digital images that leave us numb until the next morning in an aseptic mental void. References to video games, social media influencers, and ASMR role-plays blend into a cloudy mass, similar in its lack of clarity to sketches that try to illustrate paranormal events or sleep paralysis.

Mathilde Imesch – Reclaim Set: (re)construire son pouvoir

Diploma project by Mathilde Imesch

Reclaim Set is a ceramic set that manifests ecofeminist ideas drawn from the history of witch hunts. The clay used consists of a mixture of mineral and organic materials, thus bringing together the mineral, plant and animal realms. This process also conjures up the four elements during the different phases of modelling, drying and firing. Witch hunts, which began in the 14th century, contributed greatly to the alienation of our connection with nature. The destruction of this heritage has resulted in declining autonomy and loss of power as a community in the face of institutional authority. Building your own Reclaim Set is a first step towards legitimising your power. When we use our experience to change everyday life, we transform reality and fight against cultures of oppression.

Natalia Mimran – Misfits

Diploma project by Natalia Mimran

Misfits is a tribute to unrealised ideas and failed attempts and to round pegs in square holes. Discarded works and experimentations collected at ECAL during the last two years have been reworked to make this monolith. While the visual identity of the gathered material has been erased and the evidence of their physical existence fossilised, reframing their position reveals a hidden potential, as if energy was released during changes in the state of matter. The static presence does not drown out the voices, which are transformed instead into a new hybrid identity.

FINE ARTS

Ana Marija Adomaityté – Suite

Diploma project by Ana Marija Adomaityté

“The pas de deux is a dance sequence built around a theme, often symbolic of a love story or the partnership inherent in love, with the dancers portraying expressions of affectionate feelings.” On a deep blue floor, a man and a woman perform the gestures of a couple: a contemporary pas de deux about the violence of the norm. If a classical pas de deux is meant as a celebration of love, I believe it is also necessarily the celebration of suffering in love. It is, par  excellence, the performative structure in which the representation of heteronormative romanticism flourishes. Suite – a performance for two people – is a danced resistance to the norms of heterosexual love. Through the exhaustion of gestures, Suite challenges all-powerful romanticism.

Jodie Rudaz – Same Landscape of Heaven And Hell

Diploma project by Jodie Rudaz

“I remember an abandoned house, on the edge of the river. The river seems, at times, to want to cross the parapet. It has lost its mind, there’s too much light for it. From here on, we should forget its name; but no more than we humans, rivers can’t get rid of the first opinion that they have provoked in the collective mind. You will want to capture it, looking for the oval of a mirror to enclose it, but already the river is flowing towards other moments, always eager for new landscapes. A scent of honey will incite it to confidence: I am the face of everyone, the caress of the gaze that survives the gaze.” Valais de coeur, Pierrette Micheloud

Vanessa Udriot – Tidá nehés oyendau

Diploma project by Vanessa Udriot

Coming from the field of architecture, I have developed a particular interest in the representations and perceptions of the spaces and materiality that surround us. I also seek to understand how things are linked to memories and histories, how objects and subjects evolve in their environment. My practice aims to question memory in a broad sense, often in relation to culture, from its different understandings to its many relationships. By associating borders and emotions, the question of identity is increasingly present in my work. I approach these subjects through a mix of personal experiences and a lot of research.
