Valorisation du patrimoine local par l'art contemporain

From October 17th to November 12th, 2005

The artists
Visual artist : Maxim Dumitras (Rumania), graduated from the Universitatea de Arta si Design Cluj-Napoca
Writer : Valérie Schlée (France), graduated from the Université Paul Valéry in Montpellier (animation d’ateliers d’écriture)
Video artists : Raimon Fransoy Cusi (Spain), graduated from the Centre d’Estudis Cinématographics Catalunya. Xavier Puig Guitart (photographer, director and editor).

The project
The visual artist chooses one or different elements of the local heritage (in collaboration with the Musée du Quercorb in Puivert), and will do extensive researches on them. The artist can then start the work of creation. In the same time the video artist and the writer will follow these phases of researches and creation of the visual artist. They will both give importance to the patrimonial elements, show the progress from these elements to the creation and at the end the finished works. The work of the video artist and of the writer is not a documentary but an artistic work.

With the financial support of the European Community (Leader+) and the Conseil Général de l’Aude
