Other

2009, Séminaire avec Oscar Tuazon, artiste Né à Seattle, Etats-Unis, en 1975. Vit et travaille à Paris et à Tacoma, Etats-Unis. À l’aube des années 2000, Oscar Tuazon conçoit une sculpture élémentaire dite minimaliste. Emmenant la sculpture au seuil de l’architecture, certaines de ses œuvres ont l’aspect de maquettes à grande échelle : projets d’habitation, constructions précaires ou ruines. De cette indétermination de genre naît une tension physique, essentiellement spatio-temporelle. Diplômé de l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Bordeaux, Oscar Tuazon poursuit ses études en art au célèbre programme d’atelier du Whitney Museum of American Art. Dès 2006 il participe au projet éditorial Metronome (Paris) et, l’année suivante, à la fondation du collectif bellevillois Castillo-Corrales et aux Modules du Palais de Tokyo. Collaborant fréquemment avec son frère Eli Hansen, Oscar Tuazon a conçu d’importants projets pour le Centre international d'art et du paysage (Vassivière), La Kunsthalle (Bern) ou encore le Centre d'Art Contemporain (Pougues-les-Eaux).

Cyril Porchet – Seduction

Diploma project by Cyril Porchet

“ I photographed these cultural places in order to produce an effect of visual saturation. This profligacy of splendor contributes to stun the senses and at first glance provides an effect which tends toward abstraction. The optical flatness produced by the camera looks like and references the “trompe l’oeil” technique often used in this type of architecture. The goal of this approach is to show in an analytical way the exuberance and the surfeit of baroque as a critical shortcut of the dramatic character of our current society...” Cyril Porchet

David Favrod – Gaijin

Diploma project by David Favrod

«For a Swiss, I am a Japanese and for a Japanese I am a Swiss or rather a gaijin.» My name is David "Takashi" Favrod. I was born on the 2nd of July 1982 in Kobe, Japan, of a Japanese mother and a Swiss father. When I was 6 months old, my parents decided to come and live in Switzerland, more precisely in Vionnaz, a little village in lower Valais. As my father had to travel for his work a lot, I was mainly brought up by my mother who taught me her principles and her culture. When I was 18, I asked for double nationality at the Japanese embassy, but they refused, because it is only given to Japanese women who wish to obtain their husband’s nationality. It is from this feeling of rejection and also from a desire to prove that I am as Japanese as I am Swiss that this work was created. “Gaijin” is a fictional narrative, a tool for my quest for identity, where self-portraits imply an intimate and solitary relationship that I have with myself. The mirror image is frozen in a figurative alter ego that serves as an anchor point. The aim of this work is to create “my own Japan”, in Switzerland, from memories of my journeys when I was small, my mother’s stories, popular and traditional culture and my grandparents war narratives.

Thomas Rousset – Praberians

Diploma project by Thomas Rousset

“ This artistic project is the result of four years of research developed around a unique place: the village of Prabert. My photos offer an ambiguous overlapping of representations and realities, a mixture that is constantly flirting with the limits of real life and imagination, and result in a staging device that plays with the codes of both fairytales and realism. Here routine and strangeness dovetail, the Here and the Elsewhere become indistinguishable, tracks are covered up, time and space slowly crumble. The framework rests on the setting, often dipping in Fellini for inspiration in its colors or Kusturica in its folly. The situations showcased are absurd and create a picturesque and playful world. The subjects, who often take the central position in terms of composition, seem to come from a different time or culture. Their adornments and costumes only reinforce this melting pot of traditions. Animals also hold a very significant role, through ritual or even sacred function. This blend of references creates intense activity, symbolizing the coming together, the thresholds and crossroads in the creation of a new society. The objects that are enhanced here speak of the effort behind organization and solidarity. Cultures are hence rethought and transformed into bridges. Borders are no longer considered as walls but rather as areas of contact. “Praberians” is therefore a resolutely utopian world, and this series, the result of a sudden awareness of how shallow the notion of community is in our contemporary Western world. ” Thomas Rousset

Nicolas Haeni – And if we dance?

Diploma project by Nicolas Haeni

« Ce magazine contient le remède à l’ennui: celui dont souffre cette génération gauche bourgeoise ou jeunesse dorée qui ne manque de rien et qui, pour rendre son quotidien plus excitant, crée de nouveaux jeux, délires et costumes... C’est avec toute l’autodérision nécessaire que s’offre à vos yeux une solution à la passivité, une manière peut- être nouvelle pour les gens concernés de s'extérioriser, de se révolter ou de trouver un espace/temps dans lequel la liberté de faire ce qu’il lui plaît lui permet de s'épanouir. C’est aussi une façon de dire non au travail, à l’activité lucrative à laquelle la société veut nous faire participer. Ainsi, l’Homme fait tout pour éviter la labeur et cherche à créer de nouvelles excuses pour échapper à celle-ci en élaborant de nouveaux divertissements. Il met en place ce nouvel univers en utilisant l'environnement matériel de la société. Ne rien faire est aussi une forme de révolte, une opposition au système établi. Et le fait de créer donne la possibilité à l’être humain de se réaliser, d’assouvir ses plus profonds fantasmes. » Nicolas Haeni

DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP

Collaboration with Audemars Piguet 2009

Collaboration with Xavier Perrenoud

Creation of transformable jewels for Audemars Piguet allowing to highlight hidden parts and thus change their aesthetics. The watch brand Audemars Piguet wanted to create a series of jewels inspired by their oval watches from the "Millenary" line. The aim was to design a collection of discreet jewellery - which could be easily worn during the day - and which could be transformed into more luxurious pieces for special evening events.
