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.

Based on projects around a common theme, the students develop a personal and in-depth work over the entire semester. The project must be developed, clarified, modified if necessary, and enriched throughout the semester, as the students conduct research, reflections, and experiments, and as they consult with the professor. During these regular consultations, the students address the various aspects related to the conception, production and realization of a photographic work...

Higurashi book launch

Other with Milo Keller, MAP

In Summer 2019, thirteen students from the ECAL Master’s in Photography programme supervised by Milo Keller travelled to Japan to work on thirteen individual projects in collaboration with Japanese photographer Taisuke Koyama within the framework of the Tokyo Photographic Research project. The students’ artworks range from still and moving images to computer-generated photographic visuals and explore multiple facets of the Japanese megalopolis which is, once again, undergoing major transformation in preparation for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. Some projects focus on aspects specific to the city, from the destruction of small residential houses to the construction of the gigantic Olympic Village and the conquest of new territories by the sea. Other works investigate distinctive Japanese culture such as home-cooked food, the appetite for designing humanoid robots, the blending of child and adult worlds in manga, pachinko gambling, the reinvention of ikebana and young girls as ‘rising stars.’ Finally, the works seek to visually represent more abstract concepts such as loneliness, emptiness and intimacy in a city that, due to its density, size and power, offers a challenging, fascinating and extremely stimulating complexity to the eyes of the thirteen photographers. Higurashi has been presented at Espace Commines in Paris in November 2021, inside the exhibition Automated Photography during Paris Photo.

Exceptionally, in partnership with ECAL, augmented reality projects will be accessible from this point, on the façade of the Grand Palais Éphémère on 19 and 20 June 2021. At the invitation of the Palais Augmenté Festival, a selection of students from the Bachelor Media & Interaction Design and the Master Photography at ECAL have offered a series of augmented reality projects for the new Grand Palais Éphémère in Paris. By enhancing the perception of the place in real time thanks to the superimposition of visual concepts with eclectic references, the Grand Palais Éphémère is staged in a variety of imaginary futuristic, surrealist and above all playful worlds: futuristic. It becomes a photographic subject with multiple expressions and invites the public to engage via Instagram in an experience that questions the relationship between real and virtual images. 19 and 20 June 2021 Grand Palais Éphémère  Avenue Pierre Loti, 75007 Paris, France www.grandpalais.fr/fr/le-grand-palais-ephemere https://palaisaugmente.fr/ www.fabbula.com

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

Other

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

Some thoughts and starting points for an art event about Ta’ârof to be held at Bon Gah Thinking the interrelations within the art world, taking as a starting point an Iranian artist run space inviting a visiting Swiss art school wishing to understand (or underscore…) if and how Ta’ârof may be of any help to try to build a temporary community, and make art. Drawing on some recent UN General Assembly speeches, that Trick or Treat is the ultimate geopolitical strategy tool, where USA is working towards a « more just and peaceful future ». Assuming that Switzerland is a neutral country and thereafter represents consular and diplomatic interests of USA in Iran. Taking in consideration that the art community doesn’t differ from society in general: it is just a reductio ad absurdum. Artists tend to recognize each other globally, assuming some kind of moral superiority towards the rest of society, or at least pretending to understand the complex tissues of relationships and power relations that makes (and destroys) a community. But fundamentally there is almost no solidarity within the artists. Ta’ârof continually questions hierarchy, be it the artist towards other artists, the artist towards the spectator and so on. Ta’ârof plays the game of an ideal society, like art, where the artist is benevolent and humble towards the spectator. Ta’ârof shows that every word always tends to have a hidden desire.

Symposium 'Eco-monde: horizons nouveaux'

Other

Can we move from one world to another, from one period of human history to another, and still create forms, produce meaning, sell art, as if nothing had happened? To slip into a new era without taking it into account? Between the countdown of the ecological catastrophe and the new environmental conscience, we are in the process of changing paradigm, and of entering, without always knowing it, often backwards, in an unknown universe, where the political, social, scientific, artistic questions are no longer posed in the same terms. Where was the man ("ecce homo") is imposed today the interdependence of the forms of life ("to like the echo?"). Where Prometheus was unleashed, with his myth of progress and his dogma of development, a new concern arises, still badly understood, that of lasting, of letting live, of abstaining. Where substance reigns, that of products, resources, certainties, a new question now insinuates itself: the atmosphere, a matter of ambiance and resonance, of airy spirits and the bewitchment of things. And where anthropocentrism triumphed for a long time, as an imperial posture, the ground is cracking under the feet of Man, who loses his capital letter, his arrogance, his solitude too. Of this obliged ecological turn of the late modernity, the art and the culture cannot not take account. They must find a new tone, in tune with the perils, the urgencies, but also the humility and the breadth of vision required by these new times. They must explore new themes, which frenetic capitalism and the dramas of history had relegated to the background. Above all, they need to think together things that have been separated for centuries: objects and lives, air and meaning, micro and macro, time and space. It is these vast problems that the symposium will address. It is in this spirit that it will shake up our habits. It is with as much joy as questioning, with freedom as with open dialogue, that it will tackle head on the revolution in progress, and its crucial stakes for the art world - and for the simple fact of creating. We will talk about the Anthropocene, green finance, vital decay, militant slush, the relationship between the environment and the extremities, and many other things. Keeping in mind, in order not to disarm, that it is not a question of defending nature, but rather, today more than ever, of being the nature that defends itself.

"Double action" is part of the exhibition "Ligne de Mire" presented at mudac in Lausanne, from 14 March to 26 August 2018. In the society that Orwell describes in Nineteen Eighty-Four,  every citizen is under constant monitoring by the authorities. The people are constantly reminded of this by the slogan “Big Brother is watching you”. Nowadays in the Digital Age, biometric recognition and artificial intelligence (AI) surveillance systems thrive quietly in our back pocket. Not far from what Orwell prophesied, in Two Thousand  Eighteen, with all those powerful technologies at our fingertips, "Point-and-shoot" proposes two playful devices arising from “open source” AI technologies such as dense captioning (DenseCap), with "Talking Camera" — a camera that instantly audio translates the scene you just shot—and facial recognition AI algorithms, with "Move’n’Pick" — a people-triggered camera that captures pictures when subjects are striking the pre-selected pose.

"Walk With Pierre Hardy" in Tokyo

Other with Philippe Jarrigeon

PIERRE HARDY & the ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne present the exhibition Walk with Pierre Hardy . Fifteen iconic models by the designer were visually reinterpreted by the students of Bachelor Photography under the direction of Philippe Jarrigeon. Additionally, a luxurious special publication marks the occasion. Presented for the first time in November 2016 during Paris Photo at the PIERRE HARDY boutique (Palais Bourbon), this exhibition was a huge success. Pierre Hardy thought that it was absolutely necessary to share this event with his Japanese friends. Therefore, the exhibition will be discovered from 18 to 22 May in the exhibition space related to the PIERRE HARDY boutique in Tokyo. “I really enjoyed interacting with the students. At ECAL, my role was very different from that of a teacher coaching the students on their work – as I myself was the subject I knew the stuff inside out! Just show me half a centimetre of a heel and I instantly recognise the model which I created”, says Pierre Hardy. The ECAL Bachelor Photography students thus worked on various collections produced by the Parisian designer in the past fifteen years in order to give them a new visual interpretation. Photographer Philippe Jarrigeon comments on the method he chose to conduct this workshop at ECAL: “Together with PIERRE HARDY’s team we selected fifteen pairs of shoes in the archives – a purely practical decision which allowed us to keep the models as long as we wanted at ECAL. In addition, this allowed students to free themselves from seasonal trends. At the beginning of the workshop in October 2015, each student got a model on which to work by drawing lots”. This project allowed the students to question the relationship between photography and footwear, and by extension to confront the interconnection between photography and fashion. Milo Keller, Head of Photography at ECAL, observes that “Students, working without any business constraints in that case, are less formatted than a professional and therefore often offer unexpected approaches”. The results are indeed surprising and offbeat, sometimes even provocative or poetic, but always treat the original creations with respect.

Dye City New York is an inescapable place of the world's artistic and photographic scene, and is experiencing an unprecedented effervescence in the revival of conceptual art. After the strong dematerialization of photographic practice, many artists working in New York have taken advantage of the technological upheaval to break the codes and social norms of photographic devices and objects. Without a doubt, the dynamic spatial framework of New York gives artists and art establishments a frenzied impulse of research and experimentation on the photographic medium.The students were able to follow a week-long workshop with Letha Wilson and Ethan Greenbaum, two renowned American artists working on the concept of three dimensions of the photographic image, enabling students to develop their knowledge of printing techniques but also their relation to the realisation of a physical work with few means of production and very short schedule.The result of the workshop was presented in Ethan Greenbaum's workshop in Long Island on Friday, May 12th as a collective exhibition where all the students showed them their successful project.In addition, students were able to benefit from a wide selection of artists' meetings and visits to workshops, museums and galleries, their best references and dreams with a view to achieving free artistic work.
