Art Project in Australia.
- Emplacement: Anywhere in Australia
We are Thibaud Guichard and Nathalie Gelard, respectively born in 1985 and 1984, and compose together – h -, an artistic duo.
We both studied at the School of Fine Arts in France and we had our Bachelor degree at the art school of Lorient.
We also studied one year anthropology, art history and modern letters at the Lumière University in Lyon, France.
Then Thibaud graduated a Fine Art MA at the Superior National Art School of Paris-Cergy(ENSAPC), while Nathalie gratuated a Bachelor’s degree in Film and Television Studies at Paris III Sorbonne-Nouvelle University. She finished her studies at the Freie Universität in Berlin,
Each of us had a particular artistic approach before we decided to work together in 2015.
Through our work, we are interested in the knowledges, we look for the meeting between various points of view, cultures and disciplines. We attempt to observe the reality, and explore its alternative stories. We question the writing of the History, and the way we live in a set of narratives produced by specialists which shape our vision of the world. We search, observe, treat, play with the data to question our time and the seeds of the possible future they contain. Trandisciplinarity is a real stake in our work and the installation is the way we use most to stage the abolition of the boundaries between domains of thought.
The installation work allows us to produce lectures, collections, videos, and prints, among others.
Interdisciplinary Artist (Dance, Performance, Video Psychology, Yoga, Mathematics, Science, Music)Arts visuels - Paris (France) - 27/04/2020
I am a young Franco-American artist working particularly in the domain of performance-- but across many disciplines. I received a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from The Cooper Union in New York City (2013), during my four years I studied abroad at l'École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, then later pursued a Masters degree in Creative Industries at l'Université de Paris VIII Vincennes-Saint-Denis, followed by a third degree from l'École Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Paris-Cergy where I received my "license en arts plastiques avec félicitations" and am now completing my 5th year (graduation has been postponed to October 2020 du to the COVID19 pandemic). In 2017 I also completed a program in Improvisational Acting at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater company in NYC. I have been dancing all my life. Since 2016, I have been teaching yoga classes in Paris and then trained in Sri Lanka for four months in 2019. Besides all that, I'm a traveller at heart and above all, a creative spirit always open to new experiences. My work toys with language and perception in performances that occupy the gray area between art and theatre, between dance and education, between science and technology. Many of my performances are conceived in-situ, and thus numerous references and elements in the dialogue are based on the immediate surroundings. I use the rhetoric of storytelling to anchor the audience in the present and eventually reveal a larger theme at play. Currently, I'm using my art to explore and voice my deep concern for the health of our planet and the health of our bodies : how modern day life (consumption, capitalism, the chain of production, the internet, and tech) is contributing to and/or addressing the growing problem. Every space I work in is transformed into a playing field, a stage, or a launch pad for discussion, where humor and playful use of props, sounds and physical action are employed to illustrate the subject of the piece. I have shown my pieces at le Centre Pompidou, Le Frac Nouvelle-Aquitaine MÉCA, La Cité Internationale des Arts - Site Montmarte, le Centre Crédac, la Fondation Kadist, Les Magasins Généraux, la Panacée Centre d'art Contemporain de Montpellier, le Salon de Montrouge, au FIAC, à Paris Internationale, and in many other venues in Europe and the United States. I was selected for the 3rd edition of ARTAGON in 2017 and then again for ARTAGONLIVE in 2019. Because of the COVID19 outbreak, I had to stop working and also had to leave my apartment in Paris where I’ve lived for seven years. I am currently staying with friends in Nice, France. I was born in and grew up in NYC -- though, these days, everywhere and nowhere is my home!
Photographe Plasticien – Pouvoir De Transformation De L’eauArts visuels - MARSEILLE (France) - 02/03/2020
Bonjour, Je m'appelle Lamine et je suis photographe plasticien basé à Marseille. En plein processus de création d'une série "comme le retour dune vague", qui interroge sur l'énergie de l'eau et son pouvoir guérisseur en lien avec nos émotions et nos capacités de transformation. Je travaille cette série au cyanotype et en collaboration avec des thérapeutes. Tous les différents aspects de l'eau m'intéressent, allant de l'eau agitée jusqu'à à son aspect le plus calme, cette série s'inscrit dans un réel processus créatif personnel et qui prends une dimension humaine plus large. Je recherche des lieux, des espaces créatifs différents afin d'aborder chaque aspect que l'eau a à nous apprendre. L'humain et le corps sont présents tout au long de la série ... Dans les espaces que je recherche, je peux autant être en production d'images qu'en construction de cette oeuvre dans son aspect philosophique. Qu'est ce que l'eau a à nous enseigner en lien avec nos émotions et les différentes phases de nos vie ? Un projet qui traite de la transformation.
