Exhibition at the Pavillon Carré de Baudoin

Pavillon Carré de Baudouin

Because of the confinement, and while waiting for its opening to the public, here you have a virtual visit of the exhibition.

Thought as a consequence of the first confinement and initially planned for November 2020 for the 4th edition of the festival Visions of Exile, which has been unexpectedly interrupted, the exhibition “From one confinement to another” wasn’t really aware of the importance of its name. The artists have had to invent new ways of working, using the means available. They wanted to expose the obstacles that they find in their careers and express their concerns about the consequences of the establishment of the state of emergency against the COVID-19 epidemic.

Judith Depaule and Ariel Cypel

 

The Pavillon Carré de Baudouin is glad to host the festival “Visions d’exil” that celebrates the values of humanity and openness that we wish to promote in this cultural space of the 20th district of Paris.
For its fourth edition, the festival addresses the topic of confinement. The singular voices of the artists in exile stimulates us through different artistic forms: painting, photography, dance, drawing, sound creations, comic strip and mixed media. Through their activist, personal or metaphorical point of view on the confinement, they create a shared emotional experience. Art brings us closer, makes us grow up and allows us to question the world around us. This is the goal of the exhibition presented by the agency of artists in exile.

L’attestation de déplacement dérogatoire*

Rezvan Zahedi

From 15th March until the end of the lockdown, Rezvan Zahedi used her daily “attestation de déplacement dérogatoire*” as a drawing pad. The result: a 54 page diary. exploring the pandemic and its political ramifications. Having just left her country, she finds herself in a Paris unknown to her, alone and helpless, deprived of any means to communicate. 

*Mandatory form required by the French authorities for any movement outside place of residence during the lockdown.

Confined in our home

Oroubah Dieb

© Oroubah Dieb

During the 1st confinement, Oroubah Dieb decided to enjoy being with her family. She dedicates herself to a diary made of collage and paintings. She remembered that after fleeing the war in Syria, she lived in Lebanon in a small house where she didn’t have space to continue her sculpting work. And like that she started to do collage from magazines’ figures that she cut. So many people found themselves without a home, or having lost their beloved ones. She hanged on to her family, to this new form of expression and to the hope of better times.

Virtual Reality

May Murad

May Murad is interested in the correlation between the virtual the real, notions that become difficult to dissociate during a lockdown. Placing herself in a world of computer screens, where windows open to access other spaces or to display automatically generated impersonal messages. She replaces these words with more metaphorical propositions with double meanings. This work echoes Digital Residency, another project carried out in collaboration with Scottish artist, Rachel Ashton.

Monsters

Omar Ibrahim

As a child, Omar Ibrahim believed that monsters belonged to an imaginary outside world. Over time, they turned into the face of war and oppression. With loneliness and exile, other monsters lurked in him: the sadness, the fear of disease and death, the uprooting and the loss of loved ones.

Bicycle

Duaa Qishta

Duaa Qishta grew up in Palestine, on the Gaza Strip, where women are raised following strict social and religious codes, centered around appearance. Sharing her dreams of emancipation and using Théodore Géricault’s paintings as a starting point – war scenes with strong, brave horsemen – the artist imagines herself as a knight on a bicycle in battle against her society (in Gaza, she was never allowed to ride a bicycle). In Paris, she bought her first bicycle, which she she left locked up for the entire duration of the lockdown.

Too much

Daniel Blanco & Ousmane Doumbouya

The lockdown and the uncertainties linked to the Covid-19 pandemic created an information overload. This caused media congestion, with the broadcasting of death and hospitalisation rates, new health measures and rules, specialist opinions and contradictory speeches on a loop. The two artists dig into the sound archives of the lockdown, illustrating the shortcomings of communications in times of crisis.

The confinement of others

How to live with confinement when you have already experienced it while protecting yourself from the war? Did their experiences prepare the exiled who arrived in France, their host country, when COVID-19 shakes the world and interrupts everything? Papa Divin and Mohamed Nour Wana discuss the confinement of those who came from elsewhere.

Mafloum Fast Film Festival

Maazoul

Founded by Mohammad Hijazi, with the support of Art Cube Production, the Maazoul (“isolated” in Arabic) network brings together creators from all over the world, residing in Egypt, Austria, Canada, France and Germany. It was originally an online radio platform, used for exchanging thoughts and ideas with friends around the world, sharing music and creating connection through programming, to combat isolation and its monotony. Over time the radio evolved into a YouTube channel and a facebook page that streams live plays, interviews and recipe videos, produced using whatever ressources were available. Every Sunday night a Fast short film is produced and broadcasted. This is the concept that inspired Mafloum’s Fast Film Festival, open to all those wanting to contribute a quickly produced film. The videos presented are taken from this project.

#Maazoul is an Arabic word meaning “isolated”.
Maazoul from the planet?
Maazoul in a country, in a house?
Maazoul from society?
Maazoul from the ocean?
Maazoul from ideals?
Maazoul from reality?
Maazoul from isolation?

Trapped I Cut off I Confined

Sara Farid & Alaa Sndyan

In 2019, 140 women were killed by their spouses in France. “The number of calls received by the helpline for victims of domestic violence jumped by about 400% between the week of 9th March 2020 (before lockdown) and the week of 20th April 2020 (during lockdown). [vie-publique.fr]

A long time feminist, Sara Farid used to think, before her exile, that so-called “civilized” and less macho societies guaranteed a better fate for women. In Pakistan, it is common for women to be immolated or beaten to death by their husbands. Upon arriving in Paris, the photographer discovered the number of feminicides registered in France. She documented the protest movements, specially the feminist demonstration of the 23rd of November of 2019 that condemned the feminicides. In this work she goes in search of victims’ families, meets Hélène de Ponsay and Sandrine Bouchait, whose sisters had been murdered by their husbands. She recreates violence scenes based on real cases, in collaboration with a makeup artist Deya Al Ashkar : “The fallen women”.

Ashes

In our home, we have all that we need. We have beds, printed bedsheets, curtains full of colors and everything we need. A couch, a TV, lamps, a cute and big kitchen. The seing is marvelous. In our home, we are safe. We are terrified, a monster can come in from anywhere. We have fire that can burn us all. I our home, love comes after a night full of insults. We have a mother, a sister or maybe a daughter that has lost her life.

Re-post modernism

Cristóbal Ochoa

© Cristóbal Ochoa

During the confinement, Cristóbal Ochoa took an interest in the way in which French people write on social networks. He collected screenshots of posts found on Facebook, deliberately preserving the grammatical and spelling errors. He then reproduced these screenshots onto canvas, to highlight this new form of communication. Placed in the public space and taken out of their original  context, the sentences take on a more reflective dimension. To conclude a sale or get in touch with the artist, contact details can be found on the back each piece.
