Noha Mokhtar – Al Fassad / The Corruption

Diploma project by Noha Mokhtar

“ At first, I made the video «El hob wal melh / Love and salt» on the basis of two simple observations: the television has often a pivotal role in an Arabic living room and the living room itself is the most important room in the house as this is the room where you receive guests and present yourself. Therefore this room is meticulously decorated with particular attention paid to its details. The room is thus comparable to a stage set. In this work, I tried to bring both the virtual (an Egyptian historic-political soap opera) and physical space on the same sphere thanks to a combination of the sound and the image. I played with this existing ambiguous relation between fiction and documentary. This work was completed only a couple of weeks before the start of the Egyptian uprising in January 2011. Synopsis A scene from an Egyptian soap opera plays on the screen; Karama warns Amira of the ongoing confiscation of the royal family’s wealth including that of their close relation. Amira is part of this circle. The scene takes place in a fastidiously decorated living room, that looks singularly similar to the real living room, revealed by a panoramic. The sound coming from the television glides into this real room. As the first part of my project is more on the presentation of an internal point of view, I then decided to photograph the facades of buildings under construction or those that were in ruins in Cairo, as well as the “new palaces” surrounding them for my “Al fassad/ The corruption” edition. The aim of this was to confront these buidings to the stage sets of the “Media City Production”, a big film studio that produces numerous films and television series in Egypt. Once again, this work was not limited to documentary work as I added pieces of printed textile transformed into patterns, boxes of Kleenex made up like sculptures or plastic mouldings to the architectural shots. In Arabic, «Al Fassad» also means «Corruption». ” Noha Mokhtar

Collaboration with Ronan Bouroullec

The workshop in collaboration with the watch was carried out over an entire year by students in the University of Art and Design Lausanne (ECAL) under the supervision of French designer Ronan Bourroullec. Students were asked to give free rein to their imaginations and shake up a bit the brand’s DNA, designing pieces that would be inspired by the Millenary collection, the Royal Oak and the Royal Oak Offshore. They naturally came up with bold ideas that were nonetheless perfectly respectful of the codes that govern the world of Audemars Piguet.

Namsa Leuba – Ya Kala Ben

Diploma project by Namsa Leuba

“ I am an African-European, born in Switzerland and my project was accomplished on a trip to Guinea Conakry. In this work, I was interested in the construction and deconstruction of the body as well as the depiction of the invisible. I have studied ritual artifacts common to the cosmology of Guineans; statuettes that are part of a ceremonial structure. They are from another world, they are the roots of the living. Thereby, I sought to touch the untouchable. Modesty, luck, fecundity or a channel for exorcism, those statuettes hold a cultural value through what they represent or symbolise. With this work, I transform these objects, cosmological symbols of a community, who traditionally have a signification when used as part of rituals. These objects are part of a collective that they must not be separated from, or risk loosing their value. They are not the gods of this community but their prayers. They are integrated in a rigorous symbolic order, where every component has its place. They are ritual tools that I have animated by staging live models and in a way to desecrate them by giving them another meaning; an unfamiliar meaning in the Guinean context. In recontextualizing these sacred objects through the lens, I brought them in a framework meant for Western aesthetic choices and taste. This photographic eye would make them speak differently. Throughout my fieldwork, I had to deal with sometimes violent reactions from Guineans who viewed my procedures/practices as a form of sacrilege. Some were afraid and were struck with astonishment. ” Namsa Leuba

Diploma project by Louise Paradis

“The Typographische Monatsblätter” has enjoyed a long life, or rather many different lives. Established more than 70 years ago, the magazine has witnessed very important moments in the history of typography and graphic design. It made ‘Swiss Design’ known to an international readership and later spread the burgeoning ideas of the ‘New Wave’ style. This work attempts to give an overview of a critical period; the transition between modernism and postmodernism or should I say, the development of a growing reaction against modernism. Through an investigation of the covers designed between the years 1965 until 1985, this work is trying to make an objective representation of that era. The covers were a prominent aspect of “The Typographische Monatsblätter”, they provide a good indication of attitude and aesthetic concerns of the time. The designers of these covers are presented through biographies, interviews and excerpts discussing their thoughts and ideas. tm-research-archive.ch

Matthieu Lavanchy & Jonas Marguet – Les sentiments positivés

Diploma project by Matthieu Lavanchy & Jonas Marguet

At the beginning of the last century, when health tourism made ​​its appearance in the Alps, Dr. Bach developed a series of essences made ​​from flowers supposed to deal with different emotional states. Negative feelings such as invasive and unwanted thoughts, feelings of being overwhelmed, fear of failing or difficulty saying no were corrected by the absorption of these subtle remedies. Bach claimed all he had to do was eat a flower or taste a petal to intuitively know its ‘personality’ and its therapeutic qualities. Inspired by the myth of the “lone scholar” and a certain idea of ​​well-being, and Matthew Lavanchy and Jonas Marguet present a humorous, fantasical and candid report of man to his ills.

Diploma project by David Favrod

“I usually find it hard to speak about myself. I always stumble in the paradoxes of 'who am I?'. In terms of factual information, I surely appear to be the most well informed person about my own self. But as soon as I need to communicate about who I am, I tend to do it through filters, selecting what I want to communicate, and how I wish to do it, in accordance with my interests and sensitivity. So what can be the objective value of the way that I picture my family and my life? How much does it concretely relates to reality or not? 'Gaijin' is the japanese word meaning 'the foreigner'.” David Favrod

“ I decided to create an “architectural” publication. My rational is to reclaim the word architecture from within the realms of professional discourse, and examine its juxtaposition between this and everyday life. So I developed short series of visual experiments which interested me. The result is a publication that takes an alternative look at architecture and the everyday. ” Nicolas Haeni

Matthew Fenton & Haakon Spencer – Verities 01

Diploma project by Matthew Fenton & Haakon Spencer

Verities is an independent biannual publication of thought, observation and reflection, giving equal focus to visual arts and literature. Verities explores new ways of seeing the most ordinary and overlooked situations, revealing the arresting and irrational in the everyday. The ability to disorient and estrange through a subjects illumination makes for a potentially explosive catalyst that sits at the heart of Verities. In each issue artists and authors explore a new theme through artworks, photography, design, fashion, essays and short stories. Finding the new in the old and celebrating the old in the new, rescuing beauty from vulgarity, and pushing social issues to the fore. Verities makes intellectual content accessible, yet is not afraid to challenge its readers. Based in London with an international outlook this is a publication that is subjective in its authorship and honest in its approach. Taking on the mantle of producing a publication for the ultra observant. verities.co.uk

Marius Aeberli – Elapse

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Gaël Hugo

« As in accordance with the subjective vision of the user, ELAPSE offers a so-subjective visual extension adapted to each personal representation of time. Computer science and information processing have always pretended to be precise and exhaustive with a tendency to emphasize standardization. Until now, this absolute rationale has filled users subjectivity and cognitive imperfections. Nowadays, a single user interacts with digital universe tens of thousands times a day and, this same universe tends to be inspired by our own behaviors in its evolution. Nevertheless, interfaces remain just like their hosts: cold, precise and standardized or, inspired by obsolete graphical codes to which they are used. Entitled ELAPSE, my project offers a different graphical approach than interface design. Through a principle of calendar/schedule, symbol of applied computer science, the graphical interface can be entirely modeled by the user according to his conception of time. This cognitive approach allows users to leave the superfluous and to bypass the power of accuracy. Therefore, weeks and days may be unrolled in different directions and days of the week as well as hours may have different visual duration. In the same pers- pective, some days can be preferred to others and some appointments can be indicated as more pleasant than others. ELAPSE also recommends the most suitable moment for a particular appointment and permits the user to create a to-do list depending on the place where he is located and, in consequence, avoiding useless overwork. Naturally, this application is not necessarily aimed to users willing to be strongly and precisely organized but rather to those needing to make an effort when using a calendar, despite the experience of the years and of the time. » Marius Aeberli

Symposium Master Arts Visuels European Art Ensemble Mercredi 13 avril 2011 Claire Fontaine est une artiste collective qui a été fondé en 2004 et vit à Paris. Après avoir tiré son nom d'une marque populaire de cahiers pour écoliers, Claire Fontaine s'est auto-déclarée une « artiste ready-made » et a commencé à élaborer une version d'art néo-conceptuel qui souvent ressemble au travail d'autres gens. Elle utilise le néon, la vidéo, la sculpture, la peinture et l'écriture, sa pratique peut être décrite comme un questionnement ouvert de l'impuissance politique et de la crise de la singularité qui semblent caractériser l'art contemporain aujourd'hui. Parmi ses dernières expositions personnelle :  After Marx April, After Mao June , Aspen Art Museum, Colorado. Future Tense , El Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico D.F.,  Economies , Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami,  Closed for Prayers , Dvir Gallery, Hangar 2, Jaffa Port, Israel,  Etrangers Partout (QDM),  Nuit Blanche, Belleville, Paris,  Kultur ist ein Palast der aus Hundescheiße gebaut ist ., MD72, Berlin,  Arando en el   mar/Ploughing the sea , Gaga Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico D.F.,  Fighting Gravity , Regina Gallery London and Moscow. Cette journée de travail, de séminaires, de débats et conférences, s’organise autour de la présence de l’artiste Claire Fontaine et de différents axes de réflexion, sans cesse actualisés dans la pratique artistique et critique : les notions d’interprétation et de représentation, la question de la copie ou de son refus, celle de l’âge de l’accès et de ses excès. « Nous souhaiterions organiser notre réflexion autour de deux pôles : le premier serait celui de Bartleby, le copiste qui refuse de copier et dont la vie devient comme une page blanche sur laquelle seul le refus peut s’inscrire, exemplifié par la formule célèbre I would prefer not to. Le second pôle serait celui de la logique de la représentation. Nous faisons l’hypothèse que cette logique soit propre tant à l’académisme qui prône la copie la plus parfaite qui soit du réel, cherche chez le spectateur la reconnaissance des sujets reproduits, qu’à la démocratie représentative, qui propose des cadres très rigides pour canaliser les questions politiques. Dans cette perspective nous reprendrons les articles de Umberto Eco sur le mouvement de ’77 en Italie qu’il compara au cubisme et à une nouvelle forme de perspective, qui paraissait incompréhensible à la classe politique bourgeoise de l’époque.  » Séminaires : Comment ne pas copier? Comment peut-on créer quelque chose sans reprendre une forme ou un contenu existants dans la réalité? Comment refuser l'académisme et se passer de modèles sans refuser le devoir de mémoire? Comment atteindre la "barbarie positive"? Est-ce que le minimalisme est une façon d'épouser le mot d'ordre de Bartleby "je préférerai ne pas"?

"Tel un écho contemporain aux bestiaires du XVIe et XVIIIe siècle, Reburrus, de Sophie Mei Dalby, fait défiler des animaux pétrifiés. Longs plans fixes où se succèdent un rhinocéros, des kangourous, des pingouins… bestioles qu’on a l’habitude de voir en mouvement, ici figées dans des compositions si parfaites qu’on se demande si elles ne sont pas naturalisées. Un doute dissipé par les imperceptibles frémissements qui les parcourent. En contemplant ces portraits bouleversants- des natures mortes, annonciatrices d’un désastre écologique ? - on est submergé par une irrépressible mélancolie ." Sophie Mei Dalby
