Diploma project by Prune Simon-Vermot

In 2010 I met my father for the first time at the age of 23. Besides the difficulty of imagining him as a father figure — since no images of him had accompanied me so far — a cultural and identity barrier was added, due to his Spanish roots. Yo soy de Las Vegas suggests Identity and Culture as mental structures. On the basis of this disorder, I developed a kind of dreamlike and metaphorical story. I tried to find a solution to create an imaginary and singular narration with the aim of reproducing these views of Spain.

Collaboration with François Rappo

A catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition “Contemporary… Is It? The BCV Art Collection”. It offers a look at the BCV art collection, a major player in the art scene in the canton of Vaud. Through the eye of photographers Michal Schorro Florence and Prune Simon Vermot, the reader is invited to discover the works in unusual contexts, ranging from workshops, meetings with artists, spaces of the banks, places of the artworks’ creation, to the status of art objects and collectibles. The visual essay provides a unique glimpse into the artistic creation in the canton of Vaud and the active support of the BCV. It is thus, by its content and by the point of view of photographers, a reference light on the artist’s life here and now. In addition to the two photographers, the graphic design and realization of the catalogue was coordinated by Katharina Tauer and Simon Ladoux, students of the Master Art Direction, supervised and guided by François Rappo, Anouk Dulguerov, Robert Huber and Alexis Georgacopoulos. Published by BCV and co-published with the Hermitage Foundation, the exhibition catalogue is prefaced by Sylvie Wuhrmann, Director of Fondation de l’Hermitage, and Olivier Steimer, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the BCV and President of the Commission of the art collection BCV. It brings together contributions from Jean-Paul Felley and Olivier Kaeser, co-directors of the Centre Culturel Suisse in Paris, and Catherine Girard-Othenin, curator of the art collection BCV and curator of the exhibition.
