Samir Ramdani

For the first time, in 2017, the con­tem­po­rary art centre has pro­posed two pro­grammes of res­i­dency of research and exper­i­men­ta­tion, one on invi­ta­tion and the other through an open call.
Samir Ramdami has com­pleted his res­i­dence in Embrun during the summer of 2017.
Graduating from the art school in Toulouse, he has also studied at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany. In 2010, he took part in the Pavillon, Laboratoire de créa­­tion du Palais de Tokyo. In 2015, he received the prize of quality of the CNC for his film Black Diamond.
His work oscil­lates between video instal­la­tion, pho­tog­raphy and cinema. He likes to dis­place objects, putting art­works in fic­tion films or making a rapper with meta­phys­ical verve talk about con­tem­po­rary art. The polit­ical aspect of his work always involves an off­beat and provoca­tive game where worlds that appear dis­tant meet. The oppor­tu­nity to talk in this way about minori­ties of all kinds, about the games of sym­bolic and social dom­i­na­tion at play in these dif­ferent social spaces.
