Flavio Visalli – Forde Mustang

Diploma project by Flavio Visalli

"And if a double-decker bus crashes into us To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die." I was looking at these hills of wheat that reminded me of distant landscapes. Those that the wind outlines during stormy nights. The black anvil is freed from its weight and becomes sensitive to blows. I was thinking about your message, it reminded me of the howling sound of a V12. Carbon fibre, oak and acrylic paint

Léonard Vazquez Vila – Do not Seek this Word

Diploma project by Léonard Vazquez Vila

In order to translate the madness of the procedures, to explain our ability to recognise and expand, we must repeat the explanation that can only succeed. From the same two heads to the same intelligence, the very ability to fear only spells as it goes without examples. The imposition of self to self, where only small changes in learning and repeating must be understood in their true sense: the derisive power to unveil things. The properties of the madman, the freedom of renouncing difference, the guts and the coincidence of the tools of language do their work. Beyond the transparencies of the mind, the discourse of the circle arises. The desire to communicate with others and to read everything like an arbitrary thinking being.

Line Petitguyot – Stalactite

Diploma project by Line Petitguyot

My dissertation focuses on reflections about the personification of various elements of nature. The death of my father and the violence I suffered have permeated my work process. These events have been integrated into the development of my work. My graduation project is linked to this emotional heritage. It is reflected in its form by the individuality of the various elements that constitute the installation. The sculptural identity is accompanied by a text dedicated to each body. The stalagmites relate to the beginning as well as the end of a cycle. The movement on the PVC plates obtained by the scraper symbolises this cyclical transition, and the different strata that are visible through the transparency of the material offer a reading like a core sample.

The background of my series is borders and the space created by them, which builds up a relation of proximity or distance. At the same time, I work with usual, everyday materials.

Soren Gunzinger – A Cool View Over the Empire

Diploma project by Soren Gunzinger

This installation consists of two videos. The first is an animation set within the project that Adolf Loos thought up for Josephine Baker, about a spider spy who finds herself to be a critic. The second lights up a blind with a short dialogue. The work addresses issues of quotations and voyeurism, as well as comic effects and twists.

Léna Gelsomino – Castle Luggage

Diploma project by Léna Gelsomino

Plexiglas, transparent vinyl, rusty chains 1.5m x 2m Castle Luggage presents a jewellery assemblage crafted for imaginary castles. Just as I apply makeup or create props for my performances, my castles contain tales of wonder and horror which leads them to become the narrators of their own story. Tailor-made, these adornments create an interplay and a dialogue between myths and the subject who tells them. This long ornament slides over a transparent scenic installation, from which emerge the drawings of these castles and dreamlike islands, thus revealing this autonomous place of expression, which calls upon our own memory, experience and imagination.

Chloé Geinoz – Metropol

Diploma project by Chloé Geinoz

"Also known as Devil’s apple or Devil’s turnip, it was said that anyone who pulled a mandrake out of the ground would go mad when they heard its cry. To prevent this, a dog was tied to the plant and then scared off so that it would dig up the plant as it ran away. When a mandrake is pulled out of the ground, it should be placed in a fountain immediately for a day and a night, so that every evil and contrary humour may be expelled from it." Hildegard von Bingen

Oriane Emery – Midnight Conversations

Diploma project by Oriane Emery

"I am interested in the physical and mental projections that our minds generate in the space we all share. I create narratives within which I can anchor myself. My paintings represent dreamlike worlds, narratives of emancipation. Organic and in constant gestation, above all, they aim to create ecosystems. My practice is multifaceted. I seek to extract myself from the frame, to underline its limits. Linked to the public, my work explores our relationship with space, both architectural and political. Through performance, I create a climate of tension with the viewers. I seek to soothe as much as to disturb… I don’t have the answer."

Hlynur Snær Andrason – Chance Garden

Diploma project by Hlynur Snær Andrason

A small garden is displayed in a hard case. Last autumn, three containers of fertile soil were dug in various construction sites around Lausanne. This summer, the sites had changed. One container was lost, one was destroyed and another contained various plants. Inside there was a small cross section of the most common plants in the area, like a snapshot of the local area. These are plants that would normally classify as weeds – flowers you would find in the parking lot of botanical gardens. Yet these plants had found the conditions they needed within the container. They were brought inside, replanted and preserved using the same forces humans first learned to tame: shelter, light and nutrition. What would you catch in your garden?

FINE ARTS

Evelyn Vonesch – Sub Rosa

Diploma project by Evelyn Vonesch

Behind the shots, behind the frames, behind the scenes, Behind the protective walls and behind the screens, There, sub rosa, well sheltered, Hides the long, smooth thread That comes out of life. A cloud-like fibrous substance that feeds the cotton seeds, That keeps them alive, traps them but never soothes them, In its sun-drenched homeland. A thread of inclination and attachment, Connecting all and pointing to all. It never flaunts its beginning or its end. Real dramas are not played out in the limelight. When the curtain falls, look behind the scenes.

FINE ARTS

Luana Cardinaux – Sans titre

Diploma project by Luana Cardinaux

The particular circumstances of the health crisis during the last year-and-a-half of my studies led me to focus my research on concepts of home and the household – the self and the home. An imaginary environment emerged from these notions and through my personal experiences and references with imagery depicting a troubled, childhood-inspired world. The mixing of different techniques allows for both the readability and the loss of messages.

Adèle Anstett – Too Old for the Playground, Where Should We Hang ?

Diploma project by Adèle Anstett

“Only a few of us, amid the great fabrications of society, hang on to our really childish reactions, still wonder naively what we are doing on the earth and what sort of joke is being played on us. We want to decipher skies and paintings, go behind these starry backgrounds or these painted canvases and, like kids trying to find a gap in a fence, try to look through the cracks in the world.” — Bataille, G. (1949). The Cruel Practice of Art Featuring transverse and hybrid spaces, closed and open, which bear witness to a process of construction of oneself and of the group by the appropriation of these spaces and their transformation, thanks to the childish character of each one. Twisting things, commuting rigid structures through use and escapig determinism with a certain lightness.

Diploma project by Clément Pic

Mention Très bien In French, the accountant (comptable) and the story-teller (conteur) share the same etymological root. Through a shift in meaning, the accountant becomes the story-teller. Two sentences strike the time: - “Il est l’heure du bilan” (It’s time to take stock). - “Objectifs non atteints” (Objectives not met).

Lara Marino – Brain Scan

FINE ARTS

Lara Marino – Brain Scan

Diploma project by Lara Marino

Mention Bien Prix Ernest Manganel This is a retrospective of my work, a deeper visualisation of my dissertation and an extension of my research. Through the metaphor of a brain forest where several works, characters, spaces and objects take place and coexist. The body is also integrated as a form of landscape. An ecosystem filled with information where the work reveals its creation. Through the fascination of bodily evolution and decay, we discover figurative and chimerical pictorial environments that explore the relationship between the imaginary and maternal bonds. In the words of Romain Gary in his book Promise at Dawn : “With maternal love, life makes you a promise at dawn that it never keeps.”

Lydia Liu – No, No... No One's Home (Oh, non. Y'a personne)

Diploma project by Lydia Liu

Sam is the main protagonist of the video game Death Stranding . He is a delivery man in an apocalyptic world. I drove Sam into the snowy mountain and under a shelter, I put him to sleep. Sam occasionally mutters in his sleep. “Just a little longer...”. Sometimes he breathes heavily. Sam is still sleeping, but BB wakes up often. A thunderstorm is rumbling in the distance... Elsewhere, a ladder has begun to deteriorate. Something is happening, but not much, just like in a fishbowl.

FINE ARTS

Terat Thanaworrawatniti – Gong Tek

Diploma project by Terat Thanaworrawatniti

Gong Tek refers to a Sino-Thai funeral where burning paper model replicas is a ritual used to offer objects to the dead. The video installation explores the relationship between physical and intangible spaces, such as virtual and cultural ones. The work captures the moment where these objects are transformed and translated into something else. By repurposing traditional elements and changing their context, tension between translation and mistranslation is created. When the light switches on, the viewer is challenged with a new space, which calls into question the process of image construction.

Diploma project by Grégoire-Cesare Marcel

When a news item arises, when it involves very strong impulses, when it reveals something about our society, the media take hold of it. I see information as material to analyse and decipher in order to highlight the different realities it generates. The media flow acts like a machine, an accelerator of stories.

Louis Loup Collet – Heavy Snow

Diploma project by Louis Loup Collet

Our words are sometimes much better at saying who we are than we are at saying them. Word by word, they open up, and as they open, they silently turn to poetry. Words written with shadows, slowly, the light will erase them. But the poetry will remain.

Diploma project by Mathias De La Torre

Walk through places, creating an experience, a flashback, a recollection, invoking one’s memory. In a passageway two empty wooden modules are placed side by side. From one end to the other, an acrylic plate acts as a crown, unifying the whole to create a portico. Three rollers are installed at its foot. These are bath towels on which banknotes have been printed. Rolled up and placed on the inner and outer edges of the structure, they reveal their amount.

Tudor Ciurescu – Still Life

FINE ARTS

Tudor Ciurescu – Still Life

Diploma project by Tudor Ciurescu

How fast do your thoughts ride in your mind? Still life as a mirror of our time. In opposition to accelerationism, still life presses the pause button and compels the viewer to reflect upon his times. The still life of the future will have to adjust to the accelerated times it will experience. The mirror facing the world shows continuously changing movement in the strokes of an impressionist painting. And we cannot blame a mirror for its reflective properties.

FINE ARTS

Ernest Gachet – 22

Diploma project by Ernest Gachet

Mention Bien The wall is an assumption. By removing its position as “boundary”, I turn it into a subject, independent from the architecture of the exhibition space and the habitat. This action enables me to reflect on the unquestionable norm that is the exhibition wall. Turning it into a subject/form enables me to reveal the values it represents as well as its cold and impersonal aesthetic. My approach seeks to open it up in order to depose it; to make it increasingly domestic. It becomes the dog that scratches at the door and once the dog is inside, it settles down and makes its bed.
