In April and May 2018, school residency by the artist Aline Morvan with students from Collège Jean Monnet, Dannemarie.
Following a series of observations, the students experimented with different clays questioning the notions of objects, traces and memories. The artist introduces her action from Cassandra LaRue's fictional work, The Architecture of Art (1971) based on forms of research and experimentation. Drawings, photographs and casts gave rise to explorations of the school and its surrounding areas. A presentation at Gare-médiathèque de Dannemarie also provided an opportunity to present the various phases of this research to the public.
Aline Morvan, born in 1982, lives and works in Geneva. Her art studies began at Université Paris 8 in Saint Denis. After four years and a master's degree in visual arts, she's graduated from École nationale supérieure d'art de Limoges and École européenne supérieure d'art de Bretagne, Rennes. She later attended two training courses at the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design de Genève, one questioning art in the public space and the other on practices of contemporary ceramics. Today, she teaches casting in this program.
This residency received the support of GIP Acmisa—Académie de Strasbourg. It was led by Marlène Freund and Delphine Payre, teachers.
