Abbaye de Boscodon, Crots

The Les Capucins con­tem­po­rary art center invites you to meet the artists Laura Ben Hayoun and Clotilde Viannay, as part of their research and exper­i­men­ta­tion res­i­dency.

Continuing their research on child­hood and ado­les­cence, this specific time of con­struc­tion, the artists worked at the Jean Escudié center located in Barcelonnette. The center, which has a boarding school, wel­comes minors in pre­car­ious sit­u­a­tions, whether French or for­eign.
Laura Ben Hayoun and Clotilde Viannay will talk about their exchanges with young people, their encounter with the Alpine ter­ri­tory as well as their film and book pro­ject.

Laura Ben Hayoun was born in 1984, she lives and works in Paris.
After studying visual anthro­pology, she obtained a Masters in doc­u­men­tary pro­duc­tion, then a Masters in pho­tog­raphy and con­tem­po­rary art at the University of Paris 8. She works on the con­cept of wan­dering and the border. Her images are inter­pre­ta­tions of inti­mate sto­ries seen as echoes of his­tory. The image is ques­tioned in its capacity for move­ment and insta­bility. But also in its capacity to trigger the staging of one­self. Her work com­bines pho­tog­raphy, video, tex­tiles, draw­ings, instal­la­tion. She has exhib­ited in Paris at the Circulation (s) Festival and at Mains d’Oeuvres, in London at the Tate Britain "tex­ture and col­lage", in Nice at the Mediterranean Photography Festival.

Clotilde Viannay was born in 1978 in Bayonne. She lives and works in Paris.
After studying at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, she joined a research group led by soci­ol­o­gist Bruno Latour at the Science Po school on new rep­re­sen­ta­tions of the ter­ri­tory. Artist, author and pub­lisher, she exhibits in sev­eral places and events (Palais de Tokyo, Force de l’Art, Printemps de Septembre, the Fieldgate Gallery in London, the International Photography Festival in Lianzhou in China ...) and launched the magazine L’incroy­able in 2015, then in 2017 a col­lec­tion of “mini” books.
