    Donald Abad

    Donald Abad graduated from l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and likes to define himself as a neo-romantic, multimedia artist, insofar as his research work on new media and digital technology is the means by which he creates new fictional scripts.

    France
    Olivier Gain

    Olivier Gain's work takes common objects and places them in an unusual way. He may amplify or move one of the characteristics of the object, thus revealing phenomena or processes that would normally remain intangible. He therefore displaces those elements from one field of perception to another. In this way, he attempts to confront the spectator with events that are normally excluded from the 'real world' or, more to the point, inaccessible to our outer senses. This demands a process of transposition or change from one state or space to another. Very often, he works with sound which has a direct relevance to the objects in his installation. Sound therefore renders the imperceptible visible or audible. He is a Pépinières laureate for Park in progress Mons 2014.

After a Diploma in Engineering, Informatics and Mutlimedia at the University of Patras in Greece in 2006 and a Master of Arts at the University of the Arts of Bremen, in Germany, in 2010, he studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin. By merging a great variety of media, often seemingly incompatible worlds into a new environment, he produces installations in which fiction and reality meet. He investigates transitional spaces that incorporate shifting dualities such as: inside-outside, near-far, familiar-uncanny, rational-transcendent, rigid-fragile, abstract-concrete. His architecture models create a "conversation" with the otherness and with reality. Spatial concepts, symbols, memory and theoretical discourses always play a key role in his work. Elements like the "house" merge together with archive and found images, objects, devices and systems. Those elements function as a reference, as a poetic and abstract metaphor, as a vehicle to exploit a spatial discourse. Laureate of Pépinières’ Map programme, Athanasios Kanakis was welcomed in residence at Est-Nord-Est, in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Québec, where he created the works "Sehnsucht" and “Topos”.

    « In Justine Pluvinage’s work, the intimate encompasses
    all meanings, physical and psychological:
    the ‘strictly personal ’, the ‘undisclosed’, the
    naked body, the physical contact, the desire for
    someone... Everything becomes subject to the
    documentary reflection and film experiment. (...)
    With such an intrusive and subjective camera,
    as a spectator, I must forget the voyeur position
    in which she places me and accept immersion,
    constant mixing of private and public, art and and
    life.» Alexandrine Dhainaut

    Julien Poidevin

    Julien Poidevin graduated from the Higher School of Visual Arts of Mons. As a multidisciplinary artist, he is working on artistic proposals that question our relation to the body and the territory through various modes of expression. His works explore and question our relation to space and perception, sound is not the main object but it belongs to a set of multi-sensorial relations. His arborescent work develops through a set of complementary projects related to sound sceneries, to interactions between the inside and outside of urban territories he crosses, to the synesthesic environments that apply on the bodies, to the acoustic games as spatial indicators and to multimedia installations in which audiovisual devices immerse the spectator into the work. Julien Poidevin’s projects often question the nature of sound, from its source to its receptor, but also its evocation power, its ability to carry us elsewhere and to thrill us. During Park in progress in Mons in 2014, Julien Poidevin created a sound installation and a light choreography in the great hall of the former Slaughterhouse. For the edition of Park in progress in Montreuil in 2014, he took possession of the space of La Maison de l’arbre with a light and sound installation.

She uses various techniques, such as modelling, moulding, cabinet-making, metal work but also picture retouch. From her experiences of travel and everyday life, she seeks to promote the ingenious makeshift fabrications in popular culture. In October 2010, she took part in the first step of Pépinières’ Hito programme and its artistic course Jacobeo In Progress. The next year, she went to Hecho, in Spain, for a two-month residency where she experimented a sensitive work, always at odds with its environment, which brought new leads for interpretation and questioning.

    Drawing inspiration from the local folklore, Marie Sirgue distorted the traditional clothing and its numerous folds to create a vulture of fabric. This residency led to the collective exhibition “Transversales”.

    As a laureate artist of the Map programme, Marie Sirgue benefited from a residency at Est-Nord-Est, in Québec, in 2014, where she created a moulding and bas-relief workshop with the children of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, took part in “Pop-events” and presented, with the other artists in residence, “Boutique”, an installation that questions the relation of contemporary art with the market.
