on the R.Lapebie bike path
Bordeaux - Créon - Sauveterre de Guyenne - La Réole (Gironde)
artistic project with a social and above all jovial character 2023 – 1st adventure
“À vélo” is the unique framework of an artist residency combined with a social experimentation project.
Imagine a group composed of 4 artists invited in residence and young adults, sharing a weekend of 3 days to live together an extraordinary journey. A collective expedition, not far from home, a trip to change the way we look at our daily lives, at what surrounds us, and an adventure that will move the ideas of all of us to take us elsewhere.
The group of travelers is composed from partnerships with social structures that accompany isolated minors (R-d’acceuil – Rénovation), young adults with mental disabilities (AD’appro – Institut Don Bosco) and adults in the Bacalan district.
This group, composed of travelers, educators, artists and members of Bruit du frigo, gathers 30 people. This trip is developed throughout the year with the participants. It provides for connivances with cultural operators along the way, in order to set up bridges allowing the travelers to discover cultural and artistic initiatives, and to experiment with artistic practices.
The invited artists
Marianne Vieulès: visual art
Marine Vieulès manipulates different levels of truth in all of her work, particularly a slightly mysterious and flexible truth that she achieves through imagination and fabrication.
L’amicale association: Virginie Terroitin and Maddalena Pornaro: visual art and architecture
L’amicale are two young women Maddalena Pornaro and Virginie Terroitin. Both are architects by training. They have been involved for several years in alternative practices of architecture, which, through mediation, mobilization and experimentation, involve citizens in the making of common spaces and collective experiences.
Over the course of their cooperation, they have developed a common vision, always leading them towards collaborative practices involving contextual, transdisciplinary methodologies. In the projects they have been carrying out over the last few years, it is always a question of a collective adventure, which involves the inhabitants or users of a project. They have developed multiple and transdisciplinary skills mixing design, construction, graphic design and illustration.
Camille Téqui : visual art, video artist
Video artist, defines herself as a field filmmaker. Working on the Aquitaine territory for fifteen years, she is specialized in video-dance and social portraits.
Her camera to give the hand, she films like a choreography.
