EXHIBITIONS, from March 17th to the 1st of April
Galerie Dolet / Crous, 25 rue Etienne Dolet, Clermont-Ferrand
Monday to Friday – 8am to 4pm
The École Nationale Supérieure d’Art et Design d’espace de Dijon is an institution under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Communication. It proposes higher education, (1st and 2nd level university degrees, Bachelor and Master) and prepares students for the national diploma of visual arts. With an international vision, the school focuses on three specific research fields: Painting and Color, Art & Society, Urban Transformations. Its image and new media department is part of these three approaches and has developed many local and international partnerships that encourage research, creation, and distribution of works.
The four videos presented come from the Research and Creation Workshop “Le Territoire à l’écran”, proposed between 2014 and 2015 by Germain Huby, visual artist and teacher at ENSA de Dijon. Twenty students from the 3rd to 5th years, registered in the art and design of space departments, participated in this workshop which was supervised by three artists – directors, director of photography and composer working for cinema and television (notably Arte and Canal+): Bernard Laurent, Blaise Harrison, and Etienne Charry. At the end of the production, a partnership with the cinema Devosge of Dijon led to a showing open to the public.
This collaborative creation imagined for the movie screen confronts thirteen polymorphic visions of the territory and questions the close relations that we have with spaces. Whether they are intimate, private, public, individual, collective, real, virtual, or mental, these places and “non-places” as they are called by the anthropologist Marc Augé, are supposed to be “identifying, relational, and historical.” It is one possible interpretation of these territories that is shown, through their location and their visual art translation, an attempt to transpose toward the two dimensions of the screen, in order to better surround, distort, reveal or even to invent them.

In their home, a retired couple passes the days. After 55 years together, how are their daily spaces occupied and shared? What gestures still show their feelings?
Frontières invisibles, Chloé Stemmelin, 4’46
Borders delimit a territory, but most often, nothing in the reality of the terrain allows us to see the line. An enthusiast shows us these real and virtual borders.
Sérénade, Minsuk Yoon, 3’20
After nightfall, I wander around the center of Dijon. I get into position under lighted windows, and then I sing a love song. An attempt to bring together my territory with someone else’s.
