IT SMELLS THE GHOST!published on 2021-11-23
A long-time partner, OSMOART wanted to include, in its intervention, long-term collaborative work with students from the Rive Gauche Lycée.
On the occasion, and at the initiative of Pierre Bénard, of the exhibition “From matter to spirit” supported by a series of conferences around the theme “breathe”, we welcomed at the cultural center of Alban Minville, students of DNMADE (National Diploma of Art and Design Trades) by soliciting and interacting 2 mentions: OBJECT DESIGN (script, design, manufacture) & EVENT DESIGN (identities, scenarios, scenography)
By selecting three pairs of words, the students made series of samples imperatively 10 cm x 10 cm from 6 to 10 samples: material / immaterial, palpable / elusive, mark / erase, trace / imprint, vaporous / evanescent, smudge / watermark, porous / waterproof, full / empty, transparency / translucency, deaf / noisy.
The students realized the story of their encounter with a ghost. This story allowed them to get to know their ghost.
The series of samples gave an orientation to their story (unexpected encounter, oppressive, sensual, interference …).
