2021 SPACE STUDIES
Project Visarte Vaud & Fondamenta Studio with the partnership of Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts in Lausanne – Switzerland and the magazine LE TEMPS.
In 2020, Visarte Vaud developed a project around the artist and his studio with a young multimedia team, Fondamenta, made up of Paul Fritz, Rayane Jemaa and Justine Knuchel. On a weekly basis, Fondamenta produced fifty-two video capsules in the workshops of fifty-two artists, members of Visarte Vaud, and chosen by lot. The ensemble reflects the diversity of the visual arts in the canton, of all generations, trends and modes of expression. This project, if it is intended to be an inventory, is not a documentary, however. With an unexpected aesthetic, the lacunar workshop, restored thanks to virtual reality tools, looks like a sort of stranded spaceship, in which a 3D object revolves, produced by each artist with a virtual reality mask, thanks to the coaching of Fondamenta. In 2021 this project is being developed on several supports. First in the form of an open-air exhibition, with more than two hundred posters distributed in the large towns of the canton and on a few CFF trainsets. A partnership with the daily newspaper Le Temps, will allow the free distribution, on June 24, of a publication entitled Studies of space numbers 1 – 52. Then, the festival Dix toiles sous les étoiles, at the park of Mon Repos in Lausanne, will screen three capsules per evening from June 26 to September 2, 2021. And finally, they will all be broadcast on Instagram, and available on a dedicated page of the site www.visartevaud.ch.
