Camille Spiller – Smooth Space

Diploma project with RVB Books/Matthieu Charon & Rémi Faucheux

My work focuses on the construction of the city and addresses my own critical position within the extensive social fabric produced by the city. Inspired by Deleuze and Guattari’s “smooth space” — i.e., open, free-flowing, multidimensional — this work analyses and connects urbanisation processes in various West European cities. Fragments of prefabricated buildings, office blocks and streets aggregate chaotically. By further warping their aspect through the photographic lens their chaos is accentuated thus generating an atmosphere of doubt. Collage in post-production pushes distortion to the point of creating a conundrum between optical illusion and constructed reality.

Angèle Marignac-Serra – Isula Anima

Diploma project by Angèle Marignac-Serra

As everything regenerates, I wander the island of my ancestors. This book captures my encounter with the souls of this place and the invisible realm. I am confronted with a harsh and confidential geological world. None of my close family members reside there anymore. The various protagonists constitute clues, traces bearing the three kingdoms of the living. They become my clan. I become an archaeologist of this land. Animated by ancestral vernacular beliefs, the landscapes become anthropomorphised. It is a tribute to the secret nature, to the imperceptible, in search of a face in the stone, the trees, the sky. I leave room for my imagination and fantasise modern ruins like posthumous signs. The border with death becomes more and more tangible.

Marvin Merkel – Kuh Vache Mucca

Diploma project by Marvin Merkel

Kuh Vache Mucca is an installation through which I question my relationship with Swiss national identity. Having neither passport, family or roots in Switzerland, I have never identified as a Swiss national. The images and sculptures that make up this project bear witness to my attempts at reconciliation with my homeland and its national identity. These clumsy or even failed attempts offer a new approach to national identity. They make the traditions, customs, figures and monuments that every citizen has learned to praise look comical and absurd and thus question their existence. Is it still necessary and legitimate nowadays to maintain a country’s national identity?

Yolane Rais – Nagual

Diploma project by Yolane Rais

Nagual is the word used by shamans to define the world of the invisible. This project is presented as a sensory installation in a mysterious and spiritual realm, an exploration at the border between the world of the living and the world of the invisible, an attempt to materialise the immaterial that seeks to show other forms of bodies. This project focuses on the sacred and on beliefs through the experience of a different type of reality. It is an introspective work where I transcribe visions that I experienced during various trips made in the presence of shamans. With the different elements I present, I aim to highlight our link to nature and the living, the goal being to show a different perspective and an alternative way to relate to the world.

Basil Pérot – As Long as You Wait

Diploma project by Basil Pérot

This short film is about expressing our inability to come to terms with reality, especially during traumatic events. To reach this state of osmosis, we try to observe, feel, and listen as intensely as we can. This is how Pola’s character tries to grasp reality, as she slowly sinks into madness, between paranoia and identity crisis. The project appears as a transcription of Pola’s point of view and of the feelings she experiences. A book will compile Pola’s thoughts that she writes throughout the film in a burst of lucidity through which she tries to convince herself that what she is experiencing is real.

Samara Krähenbühl – Il est passé tout à l'heure, il m'a dit de rien dire

Diploma project by Samara Krähenbühl

At the turning point of the transition to adulthood, childhood and its memories re-emerge more than ever. Through a short film at the edge of video art, I question how to overcome one’s traumas and reappropriate one’s life experiences and grey areas. Because of its dreamlike character, the film takes on a surrealist tone. Through visual metaphors and mental imagery, I exorcise an intimate and painful episode of my childhood.

Lisa Mazenauer – Copper Tales

Diploma project by Lisa Mazenauer

What links embodied desires with the spirals of open-pit mines? Copper Tales is an installation that addresses mining operations through the sensitive bodies that are involved in it. Based on the site of the Rio Tinto mines (Spain) crossed by an acidic river, the project connects different actors participating in the extraction of raw materials. The – archaeological, geological, human, bacterial – traces marked on the grounds are projected together in a future narrative.

Florian Hilt – New Order

Diploma project by Florian Hilt

New Order generates a series of encounters and interactions between distant elements through multiple approaches in the visual, digital and installation fields. Through these exchanges, I reveal my secret nature: my impulses, fears and dreams. By exploring them as infinite spaces with multiple levels of information, past, present and future mix to reveal new assemblages. My collection is made of contrasted fragments: web archives and smartphone pictures, ancient-looking artefacts and video games. The installation acts as a chaotic self-portrait and allows viewers to choose their own path and question themselves. By linking the elements that compose it, each experience is the result of a new order.

Julie Corday – De taille d'une mandarine

Diploma project by Julie Corday

This is a physical and psychological trauma that took place in my childhood. At the age of 9, a stone the size of a tangerine hit my left eye. Today I am trying to reconnect the woman I am with the little girl who almost lost her sight 20 years ago through photography. Several surgeries and significant loss of vision gave rise to fears and anxieties of being blind or disfigured. By weaving links between my personal history, mental images and the perception of the world around me, I offer a story composed of my childhood words and visual metaphors to recount this accident.

Ludivine Keller – Girovago sulla risacca cercandoti

Diploma project by Ludivine Keller

Girovago sulla risacca cercandoti is the story of a dreamlike wandering experience that I went through after the loss of a loved one. This project brings together several symbols that have become obsessive for me over the last few years, developing in a back-and-forth fashion like emotional backwash. It is the result of several trips to Italy, suspended moments and life-saving free dives. Water serves as a temporal bridge to the projections created by absence and a creatura-musa guides us through this world of dreams. The publication translates the ambivalent and fluctuating sensations of this wandering, while the collage-sculptures highlights this desire to recreate amalgams to fill a void.

ECAL x Jean Paul Gaultier: Smells Like Queer Spirit

ECAL x Jean Paul Gaultier: Smells Like Queer Spirit

"Smells Like Queer Spirit" at Musée des beaux-arts du Locle - an exhibition created in collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier by third-year Bachelor Photography students, under the direction of Florence Tétier and Nicolas Coulomb (Novembre magazine). In the 1980s Jean Paul Gaultier overturned dress codes and showed the porous boundary between masculine and feminine. The fashion designer playfully reversed roles, overturned gender and designed silhouettes that combined masculine sensitivity with feminine power. When they were launched, the brand’s perfume bottles also broke with the androgynous fashion of the 1990s. Now iconic, these served as the starting point for photographic exploration by students of the Bachelor in Photography at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne. For this research project directed by Florence Tétier and Nicolas Coulomb – under the watchful eye of Claude Emmanuelle Gajan-Maull, consultant LGBTQIA+ – the photography class questioned the human body and its representations. The images created in 2021 by the 12 students relate to themes of pride and tolerance. These works show that commitment to a more inclusive society also relies on images. A publication, co-edited by ECAL x Jean Paul Gaultier x Novembre and designed by Baptiste Gerbelot Barillon & Jean Marques, is also being published to coincide with this exhibition.

Stammering This involves taking an idea, a project in progress or a project that has already been completed but not satisfactorily, and pushing it further, both from a conceptual and/or aesthetic point of view, as well as from a production point of view. To experience what can be improved in a project compared to a first realisation. Revisiting a classic. It is also about testing ideas, taking risks, pushing a process further, experimenting.

The students develop a project over the whole semester, on a freely chosen subject, by submitting it regularly to the critical eye and advice of the professor. Argumentation and analysis are stimulated. The aim is to examine the issues involved in photography as an author and to develop a personal expression, which could potentially lead to the students' diploma work. Particular attention is paid to the argumentation of the work, at the different stages of its development.

Starting from the premise that the book constitutes both an alternative practice to the exhibition and an alternative exhibition practice - alternative exhibition practices insofar as the book and the printed word are essentially modes of visibility of art; alternative practices to the exhibition because this means of visibility is very different from what is usually called an exhibition - we consider the book to be the medium that is perfectly suited to soon-to-be-graduated photographers.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Workshop Paolo Wood

Workshop with Paolo Wood, Sarah Koeke

It has been established that photography is a language. With all its limitations and peculiarities, but a language anyway. Photography is often a relatively poor language that constantly repeats the same nouns and verbs. In the documentary tradition, the range of subjects treated is quite limited and recurrent, and for this reason, in order to make photographs, one must learn and master this language: its vocabulary, its grammar and its history.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Jenna Callewaert – Her and I

Diploma project by Jenna Callewaert

Mention Bien. What do you do when you miss everything? How do you avoid being haunted by the place you left? A painful absence mixed with hope, nostalgia that associates past and future, like a paradox. Above all, this project is a quest: that of finding a part of myself in a country where I once lived, and whose only memories I had were of colours, smells and sensations. Throughout my journey, I sought to explore and confront these memories built on a form of absence. Between dismay and delight, I often asked myself the question of the integrity of these images. Were these memories real or pure fabrications of the mind? I thus designed this book with the aim of capturing a process of transformation where each image, composed of sepia, shadows and ochre, carries in its flesh the testimonies of the past and illustrates that nothing ever dies.

Sofia Papaefthymiou – Το Ρόδι – The Pomegranate

Diploma project by Sofia Papaefthymiou

Mention Bien. Being half-Cypriot half-Swiss, I somehow felt the need to understand my relationship to the territory, borders, exile and my shared origins. Το Ρόδι–The Pomegranate is a short film that has become a tool for exploration and deconstruction, bringing the geopolitical conflicts of my country up to the level of my own conflicts. This project is also a space where I can dream freely of other places, my own island – the reflections of my desires. Unable to reach this homeland, I try to grasp what I do not have, to reproduce the sensations that I experienced there. I collect archives, I commission images. I bring my female body, which I appropriate and re-appropriate through various representations, back to its origin, to find my place and speak up again.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Clara Roumégoux – Territoires du geste

Diploma project by Clara Roumégoux

The video Territoires du geste features portraits of women of different generations living in France with a dual cultural identity. From gesture to speech, the question of transmission emerges thanks to a modest mechanism, where material and immaterial dimensions meet between stories and culinary activities. How does the gesture become a symbol of silent resistance? The kitchen stages the political elements that history reveals. From couscous to meatballs, ma’amoul and Turkish coffee, these foodstuffs of historical and cultural heritage bring us back to the resulting spiritual heritage. The movement of the hands sets the stage for the political elements that their words weave, right down to the psyche of dreams and fears.

Alizée Quinche – They Blossom at Night

PHOTOGRAPHY

Alizée Quinche – They Blossom at Night

Diploma project by Alizée Quinche

Mention Bien They Blossom at Night explores the vision of a shifting biotechnological intimacy, the opening to an altered state of consciousness towards an undefined space, a moment in time when the connection between bodies becomes fluid(s), a form of sexuality where each partner, each relationship, transforms and helps beings evolve through sharing and emancipation. Featuring an immersive video-sound installation, the project appropriates the symbolic force of procreation. It explores the materiality of non-reproductive sexuality by developing a microbiological creature that represents the transmissions of polyamorous intimacy. The work expresses the cohesion between the organicity of relationships and a form of technology that allows for different social liberations, in reference to medically assisted procreation.

Justine Willa – Where Are the Exits up There?

Diploma project by Justine Willa

In the summer of 2021, Asclepios, a scientific association, organised a mission in the Swiss Alps, simulating life on a celestial body other than Earth. Confined for ten days in tunnels 450 metres below the ground, six “astronauts” transformed this hideout into an otherworldly place and modelled their daily life on the rhythm of life in space. This retro-futuristic scenario, seen in scientific circles and science fiction, questions reality, the projection of reality and the resulting image. Based on their mission, my project transcribes the fantasy of space exploration through immersion, mixing the reality of the situation with artificial images, and questions our place in the universe and our role in the future of humanity.

Caroline Perrenoud – Entre-deux, il n'y a pas rien

Diploma project by Caroline Perrenoud

There is a space between what we call reality and virtual reality, which by definition is unreal. In this in-between space, full of possibilities, identities are created and emancipated. Sexualities are discovered and avatars are roles that we choose to embody. These roles are manifold and represent the multiplicity of the self. Women in their plurality, dissidents, the in-between space enables us to show ourselves, to observe each other, to make ourselves powerful and claim our place and freedom. Through self-sexualisation, the monetisation of the self-image, sexual or romantic relationships, the avatars evolve seamlessly and transform. They decide, take over the space and meet in an immersive video installation.

Steven Rüthy – Insight

PHOTOGRAPHY

Steven Rüthy – Insight

Diploma project by Steven Rüthy

Mention Bien. Do we still see everything that happens around us ? Insight is a short film set in an architectural social housing complex in Bümpliz-Bern, which offers a unique perspective of the world as viewed by an elderly couple living in the Holenacker district on the outskirts of the Swiss capital. In this project I confront the viewer with a way of life which for us as visual artists and most likely for many others, is unimaginable. I question the spatial notion of a secure/safe space and how it is used and therefore perceived from an external point of view, my own. Insight therefore consists of stepping into the shoes of someone who has blurred vision, understanding what it is like and how it affects the way you live.

Marie Noury – Nous voir ensemble

PHOTOGRAPHY

Marie Noury – Nous voir ensemble

Diploma project by Marie Noury

Mention Très bien What possible stories can twenty-four by six centimetres trigger? A photography that I hold dear generates a collective conversation. Nous voir ensemble takes the form of an investigation into a familiar and founding archive where words and visions meet. From this vernacular photography, voices narrate, project, and imagine. What story, memory and presence do these shots, on and off-screen, generate? How do words bring back to life a picture that has been worn out over time by the viewer’s gaze ?

Lara Ziörjen – No Hard Feelings

PHOTOGRAPHY

Lara Ziörjen – No Hard Feelings

Diploma project by Lara Ziörjen

Mention Bien. No Hard Feelings is a personal exploration of the world we live in. Through these images, a powerful vision of our culture emerges – who are we, how do we consume and ultimately, where are we headed? The book shows an abundant world in which fast fashion, artificial food and useless objects accumulate. An important aspect of this work is the combination of images and the work on detail, approaching an object, analysing and understanding it. It addresses the absurdity and banality of everyday life. The images were all taken with a mobile phone, an essential tool that complements my conceptual.

Axelle Bruniau – Leughenaer

PHOTOGRAPHY

Axelle Bruniau – Leughenaer

Diploma project by Axelle Bruniau

Leughenaer is an autobiographical fiction about my relationship to my childhood in a particular geography and culture – Dunkirk – a city in the north of France. This film refers particularly to my non-binarity and transfemininity in a social context where carnival culture and cross-dressing are an important part of life for three months a year. The architecture of the city of Dunkirk is of particular interest to me because of the parallel I can draw with my own person. This city was 90% destroyed during World War II and was quickly rebuilt into a modern city. Deconstructing in order to reconstruct, that is how I went back to make this film.

Antoine Martin – Via Alpina

PHOTOGRAPHY

Antoine Martin – Via Alpina

Diploma project by Antoine Martin

Mention Bien / Prix La Foncière. Swiss iconography presents the mountains under two ambivalent aspects: on the one hand, a hostile and dangerous environment, and on the other hand, an environment tamed and dominated by humankind. The interesting aspect of this project is that it transposes certain characteristic images from this iconography and leads viewers to question the boundary between stereotypes and the reality in which they live. It also questions the use of mountains as an “artefact” conveyed by commercial clichés. Viewers are led to get involved physically with the image by immersing themselves in the relief of this alpine imaginary, forced to observe the paradox of its symbolic and monumental reduction through commercial imagery.

Emeline Courcier – Under the Ashes of the Mekong

PHOTOGRAPHY

Emeline Courcier – Under the Ashes of the Mekong

Diploma project by Emeline Courcier

Mention Excellent / Prix Elinchrom. Under the Ashes of the Mekong is a film that questions the coexistence of opposed traditions and cultures, life and death, and the confrontation between history and individual stories. Against the backdrop of the health crisis and anti-Asian racism, family ties are revealed through conversations questioning my place as a Viet Kieu daughter and my lineage. Through our beliefs in reincarnation, I project myself onto a familiar yet foreign figure: my mother’s cousin, who drowned in the Mekong, creating a link between past and present, war and peace, words and silence. It is through traumatic memory and psychological heritage that the after-effects of a war from which my family escaped reach me, taking precedence in my dreams and my mind.

David Benito Py – Pigeons, They Make Up the Beehive

Diploma project by David Benito Py

Every city is the unique work of its inhabitants and, paradoxically, it concerns every one of them in a different way. In my opinion, in order to solve the apparent contradiction between intimacy and urbanity, the appropriation of space, both material and mental, is necessary. Only then can urban wandering be experienced as a real sensory experience. Through this installation, I invite visitors to live my personal experience of space, horizontal and vertical, contemplative and obsessive. As Jean-Christophe Bailly put it, “Each city has its own slang and has, within itself, a clandestine city that pierces it in scattered meshes whose bare thread the stroller puts back together.”

Sarah Koeke – Can We Always Be This Close

PHOTOGRAPHY

Sarah Koeke – Can We Always Be This Close

Diploma project by Sarah Koeke

Mention Très bien. Over the past ten years, thanks to video streaming sites, K-Pop has become a global phenomenon, completely reshaping the relationship between the music industry and the image. K-pop stars, also known as idols, have become symbols of globalisation and the cultural power of South Korea and are asserting themselves as role models for many young people in the West. Can We Always Be This Close paints a complex picture of the links between image, identity, masculinity and fan culture. Through their social networks, young fans construct their identity online. The content produced seems superficial and narcissistic, but highlights essential topics such as gender normativity, social relationships or ethnic issues.

Essais photographique

Studio project with Matthieu Gafsou

The mere mention of the term animal already raises questions; the most general of all is the following: do we, as humans, belong to this kingdom, or have we become totally alien to it ? The aim here is not to answer such a question, but to understand that the divide between humans and non-humans is extremely strong in our society - the only one in human history that has forged such a boundary. Yet the animal is everywhere in our daily lives. There is the animal we eat, or refuse to eat, the one we domesticate, the one that lives in our - its? - environment, the one we hunt, the one we cage in zoos, the one we study, the one we protect, etc... There is now talk of the sixth mass extinction of biodiversity. This context, which is ours today, complicates our relationship with living beings and with animals in particular. We are forced to rethink our relationship with others and become aware that life is a complex network in which we do not have all the space. Moreover, recent scientific research has exploded the Cartesian theory of the animal-machine and demonstrated that we are not the only ones to have developed an interiority. During this year-long project, students were asked to produce a series that addresses one or more of the themes associated with the animal world, in the form of their choice but using reality as raw material.

Accrochage Photographique

PHOTOGRAPHY

Accrochage Photographique

Studio project with Laurence Bonvin

How can we move from the two-dimensionality of the image to the multi-dimensionality of the experience ? How can we introduce notions of space, volume, tactility and sensuality into images and the way they are presented ? If images can allow us to create new links with the world, how can we possibly move away from an essentially technically based vision, a perspectivist and anthropocentric vision ? How can we imagine and represent what a representation detached from our human point of view would be ? In our culture a separation has been established between culture and nature. This dichotomy has determined the way we see, understand and represent the world around us. How can we create images of the living, of "nature" that go beyond this distinction and this point of view ? Images that contribute to recreating a link with what is nonhuman: the plant, the mineral, the animal, the cosmic. What does an animal, a plant, an object, a tree, the earth feel and perceive ?

“JeSuisDiversité” is a fictitious campaign led by a French suburban city to improve the image of a neighbourhood based on diversity only. Using corporate communication techniques, diversity becomes an affordable and attractive idea. “JeSuisDiversité” deals with the issue of the representation of French suburbs and the depoliticisation of public policies in favour of communication. Diversity is a marketing asset used to mask a semblance of political commitment. ho.norida@gmail.com https://www.noridaho.com

Gohan Keller – A Travers les Autres

Diploma project by Gohan Keller

My research “A Travers les Autres” focuses on my identity from the outside. In the form of a collaborative self-portrait, I examine the hybrid, manifold and fluid nature of identity. Through the words of my loved ones, I explore various representations and perceptions of my persona in order to better understand and redefine myself. This diversity of points of view also addresses the duality between subjectivity and objectivity in any attempt at definition.
