Mehdi Louati

STATEMENT

As a research Master’s Student in Heritage, I have also a professional Master’s Degree in Hospitality Management and an Applied Management License in Tourism Products. I also take a long leadership experience by working with many associations in Djerba and now i’m the assistant Secretary General of ASSIDJE. By working with international artists, i gain a new understanding of my personal heritage, culture and values. Additionally, I become more independent, self-reliant, and self-confident as I learn to navigate and live comfortably in a different culture. As a result, it’s easier for me to form partnerships and work effectively to tackle global or multinational challenges. But also, develop my professional skills and my leadership experience.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I always look forward to exploring a new part of the world. Getting to know the culture and the people through an art project like this, is the most beautiful way to connect with a place and its people. SEE Djerba will bring different people together who are driven by a passion about light, like me. I look forward to two exciting weeks in Djerba!

ARTIST’S STATEMENT …

SEE Djerba Site: …

Photos: Sara Foerster, Daniel Hausig, Sabina von Kessel.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
Ingo Wendt’s artistic bearings are light art, architecture, and kinesis. He gets his inspiration from cultural realities, natural and urban landscapes as well as from architecture and historical places. His artworks, which often have a highly playful character, create beautiful atmospheres wherein colors become almost tactile matters. Even though this might not be his main focus, his interventions in public spaces have rarely failed to improve people’s ability to better value the urban and architectural environments they live in.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Beauty, in my eyes, is highly underestimated in the arts nowadays. Beyond, above or wherever content and messages there is a wide field of joy through beauty that everybody enjoys no matter what age, what cultural background or what education we have. This uniting power is very often neglected and covered by messages and narrative content. In my work i try to explore this power conected to the aspects of light.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
The individual perception is the starting point for my light art works. To have it as pure as possible I try to avoid any narrative content. Aspects of everyday perception become aware by the changes in time and people can enjoy the perception of their own perception.

Ursula Scherrer

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

An image distorted in space and time – visceral, sculptural, three dimensional, spatial, dynamic, subtle, fragile, poetic. I am looking for ways to express my inner landscape in the outside world. My work is less about what one sees then about the feeling that it leaves behind. My aesthetic training began with dance, transitioned to choreography and expanded to photography, video, text, mixed media and performance art.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
Ursula Scherrer is a Swiss artist established in the US. Her aesthetic training began with dance, transitioned to choreography and expanded to photography, video, text and mixed media. She is attracted by the ephemeral nature of past experiences as well as by the ways present times can be interpreted through the artistic media.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
In her light installations, Annika Hippler displays light as an ephemeral material as well as a tool for drawing, painting, sculpturing and creating site-specific artworks. Meticulously combining lasers with water and other mediums, subtle coupling and resonances are developed through reverberations, unveiling matter in its purest form, giving shapes and colours a natural poetry. In her luminograms, Annika Hippler records the impact of light on canvas.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT | After See Djerba

We already took part in INTERFERENCE, and it was a great experience. After being asked by Aymen and Bettina to participate in SeeDjerba, we were excited and already started thinking of an idea, a creation. It was a chance to be in such a multicultural environment, the diversity lead us to be more creative and innovative. Working in a site specific context is always a new challenge.
It was not our first time in Djerba, but the first project, and the first time we find ourselves in this cross-cultural and international context and group. In the beginning, we felt lost, finding a site was not so easy and our quest took a big part of our stay. We found different inspiring spaces but with a big constraint till we visit the Hangar in the Mediterranean Center. That was the perfect space in the perfect timing.
During our stay, we met new people, had deep discussions with different interesting persons, the time spent there was enriching and we made a lot of new friends, networks… the local community was friendly, welcoming and as soon as we arrived we felt home. We loved the atmosphere and ambiance. The shared catering was a great idea of meetings, exchanges and commitment. The good vibes were everywhere.
We think that SeeDjerba was an opportunity to share, enrich and create in an environment full of positive energy. Tthe community was impressive, the volunteers were very engaged. SeeDjerba brought light to the island, and alternative to have more activities, and we hope to See this energy in the future.

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION

WE PROMISE YOU …

Technique: Installation made of wire and black light

Promises, promises, and promises. They promise changes, for the time of a beautiful speech, thevtime to gather the gratitude of the actions never carried out. Promises are never kept.
40,600 workstations that they are supposed to create, 1513 archaeological sites that they are supposed to restore, 3200 projects to develop public spaces, on papers, that they plan to carry out. Large terms are quickly used : cleanliness, environment, local democracy, decentralization, etc.
The work is constructed by white threads revealed in black light and has an image and text arranged on the ceiling using the technique of anamorphosis. In the latter, the image is visible only from one privileged point. As you move around the room, the image is distorted, stretching strangely and will no longer have any meaning.
The message of the installation is addressed to politicians and their demagogic discourses, which, as anamorphosis, from an angle of view appear clear and promising, but quickly lose all their senses as soon as one turns away. Then by discovering the work, the visitor is invited to look for the location of visibility, to observe the message and to decipher it.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT
The island of djerba, by its urban and natural landscape, inspires us and leave us and allows us to dream.
“SEE Djerba” is an opening toward new adventures for us, with a serious and qualified team. It’s also a unique moment of exchange and complicity shared between artists, accomplices, coaches, visitors and future colleagues, in order to take part “perhaps” in the construction of a better world.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
Their passion and commitment is their poetic vector. Houda Ghorbel and Wadi Mhiri are conceptual artists and work transdisciplinary with ceramics, photography, performance, light, installation and interventions among others. Their concepts are reflecting on societal questions with strong links to sociocultural developments. ” We start our building process from a space and the association it allows, we are guided by our ideas and we build by experiencing the impact of our interventions. Our projects have in common that they address the human body as the storage of experience as well as the collective memory and its shaping. We are interested in the interplay of the individuum and the collective, we reflect on the dynamics of individual and collective identities and their impact on religious and political culture.”

ARTIST’S STATEMENT | After See Djerba

At See Djerba I was able to participate as an artist. During the week I was free to explore the new surrounding, meeting new people and starting to work at my own project.
The week I had (only the one before the festival) was too short for all the possibilities which were offered (talks, workshops etc.).
My intent was to realise a site-specific work in Djerba, which deals with the influences of the experiences and impressions I explore in a new and unfamiliar space. During my stay I started a new way for me to work with the found photographic material, furthermore it is my first work with a diascope.

SEE DJERBA SITE
Fondouk Batista, Houmt Souk, Djerba.

ARTWORK DESCRIPTION

Luminous Vanishing
variable size / diascope / slides

The starting point for my artwork” luminous vanishing” were old slides that I found.

These slides were photographed by a german couple, who travelled to Djerba and Tunis during the 1970s. During my week in Houmt Souk Djerba, July 2017, I took my own pictures as well. The first idea was to combine the old and the new slides and to create a new story from this effort.
I began with the questions: How the place has changed? Could I recognise something? How travelling and photography changed over all these years? Would the old photographs differ from mine and would there be a difference in light and colour?
During my stay in Houmt Souk, I began to deal more with the physical, analog photographic material. I wanted to intervene directly on the slides to modify the picture physical and irreversible.

I wanted to leave traces, erase memories, and look for what might be hidden in the material. To conceal and to bring past and transience together. These were the first steps during See Djerba and they will continue now.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT
In the past two years, I have had the opportunity to visit Tunisia several times, working there as an artist and exhibiting my artworks. With the exhibition project “Flux Lumineux” at the Goethe Institute Tunis in 2015, I learned how energetic and positive the cooperation in Tunisia can be. In Djerba I would like to realise an site-specific work. For me, the impulse is to discover a place with my artistic view, to implement it in my work and to present it in the public space. With analogue material I would like to transfer the outstanding light of Tunisia into the night.

ARTISTIC APPROACH
Among the exploration of areas, borders and transitions, transformation processes are an overarching theme in my work. Unable to establish chronologically, whether they are necessary in a short moment or developed over a long period of time, I perceive them and give them space. In clear structures and a well-ordered collection, I enable the viewer to linger in this fragile moment of change. It shouldn’t, in the process, be taken as a perishable moment, rather that the elapse of time is included. The perpetualness of change fascinates me, each moment is linked with one before and one after and encloses them in itself. I pursue these moments with photography as a medium and as material.

Mariandreina Baasch

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

Last year Bettina and Aymen told me about the great art festival they made in Tunes, which reminded me about the initiatives I had made in my homeland, Venezuela. I got excited just by hearing them talking, it felt really familiar. Now, I was told that this second experience exists due the motivation of the people and that the idea is to offer an alternative cultural place for and with Tunisians in Djerba. No further words needed to be said for me to accept this incredible -personal- challenge, were I would not get to be in the organizing team, but instead I will be in the artistic group. To Djerba I am bringing my energy, my -short- experience as an architect and my spirit as an activist, in order to interact with this new context. In this exchange experience I am hopping to leave one ephemeral part of me in Djerba and in my new colleagues; I will take home the conceptual challenges and learnings of this cultural space.

SEE DJERBA WORKSHOP
[1] What happend in Venezuela? ART AND SOCIETY Workshop

BACKGROUND

At the moment I saw myself under the government repression, I felt the urge of finding a new way of expression, a new way to protest… So, what better means of communication can be asked in a censored, controlled and oppressed country? Art surpasses any kind of censorship, I though. It deviates it, disguises it, makes fun of it. The art offers direct emitter-receiver communication and it conveys a subjective message. It can achieve its goal by means of music, dance, paint, photo or prose. Art provides a democratic space where any opinion can be discussed and from many interpretation can be learned. For that reason in 2014 together with my team „CambiArte Venezuela“ we created a space where the people, our people, could at times be free. A space that gave artists the confidence back to go out into the street to express their voice. A place to re-meet neighbors and create a safe network. In this workshop I will talk about the political situation in Venezuela and the importance of arts to rebuild the sense of democracy.
