PARTICIPATORY VIDEO INSTALLATION
FROM 7 TO 15 JULY FROM 11AM TO 7PM
ESAA, CHAMPFLEURY SITE
The state of the world and the crises that shake it shape our lives. In recent months, there have been coups in Burma and Mali, the return of the Taliban to Afghanistan and Russia's invasion of Ukraine. What do we remember?
The Artists in Exile Workshop and ESAA propose a protocol to activate our political memory, with the aim of developing a memory database.
The public is invited to come to the ESAA on the Champfleury site in order to recall a geopolitical event, experienced or reported, which has had a particular impact on them. Guided by artists in exile and art students, they take their place in front of a camera, with or without their faces uncovered, and tell their story in the language of their choice. The stories collected are edited and processed as they come in, in rough cut mode, forming an endless film. The film is regularly expanded and screened at the Chapelle des Cordeliers.
PROJECTION IN CONTINUITY
FROM 7 TO 23 JULY, 11AM TO 7PM
CHAPELLE DES CORDELIERS
The montage of the comments collected at ESAA is projected continuously. The public discovers certain events or remembers them. All of the stories form a collective memory with markers that change according to the age and origin of the people interviewed. The public is also invited to contribute to the film by visiting the ESAA on the Champfleury site to give their own testimony.
> To testify: go to the ESAA, Champfleury site from 7 to 15 July, 11am-7pm (1, avenue de la Foire, 84000 Avignon)
Refreshments and light meals on site
> To watch the projection: chapelle des Cordeliers, from 7 to 23 July, 11am-7pm (3, rue des Teinturiers, 84000 Avignon)

The mission of the atelier des artistes en exil (aa-e) is to identify artists in exile from all origins and disciplines, to accompany them according to their situation and needs, to offer them working spaces and to put them in touch with professional networks (French and European), in order to provide them with the means to develop their practice and to restructure themselves.
