Rencontre avec bermuda et Montagne Magique
bermuda and Montagne Magique, new artistic ecosystems
In 2022, Documents d'artistes Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is undertaking the production of a series of filmed portraits of artists, thanks to support for filming and alternative broadcasts from the Ministry of Culture.
These films, whose production is mainly entrusted to artists, focus on inter-generational cooperation and links and on innovative initiatives carried out on different urban and rural terrains. They call on the words of artists on their research and on singular projects in which they engage as actors in the evolution of their territories.
It is in this context that Guillaume Robert is invited to make two new films with the co-founders of the places of creation, production and distribution located in department of Ain: Montagne Magique in Hauteville and bermuda in Sergy.
On this occasion, the museum of contemporary art offers a screening of the films by Guillaume Robert, in the presence of the director.
The screening will be preceded by an introduction by Mathilde Chénin in which she proposes to reflect on the forms of commonality that are composed according to the simultaneous experience of "living together" and "working as an artist".
Finally, a round table will give the floor to Gaëlle Foray, Jean-Xavier Renaud from Montagne Magique as well as Bénédicte Le Pimpec and Maxime Bondu from bermuda to discuss these two collective experiences.
Moderation: Mathilde Chénin
Mathilde Chénin is co-founder of the bermuda project, alongside Maxime Bondu, Bénédicte Le Pimpec, Guillaume Robert and Julien Griffit. She has just completed a doctorate in visual arts and urban sociology: When artists form by living together. Uses, presences, imaginations.
Under the direction of Luca Pattaroni and Olivier Desvoignes (LASUR - Urban Sociology Laboratory, EDAR Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne and HEAD—Geneva).
