Some pages of the catalog produced in May and distributed during the biennale presenting the whole of the residence. From the concept to the realization "I live here: in langres! " show the process of creation inviting each class to work on the identity of the public space which they choose. In total this Kids Prgram represents 20 workshops, around 125 children and 5 teachers.
Restitution of the residence during the biennial organized by LeSigne at the TizsaTextil factory. The scenography I drew focuses on the creative process and explains step by step how the children were able to reveal the identity of their public space to speak better. Four walls, four stages: the first wall presents the research they conducted on the spot such as inspectors / ices. The second shows the different shapes they have selected. The third shows a very small selection of letters and the last wall leaves room for their final intervention in the public space.
At the invitation of The Sign - National Center of Graphic Design, I conducted this year a project with five classes (three classes in primary school and two classes of 6th Diderot College) totaling about 125 students supervised by 5 teacher (e) s. With the students we took the time to observe the city and its public space to understand their environment. After choosing the space that speaks to them and makes a sign in their city, I proposed to draw their identity. "I live here: in Langres! It is a project inviting students to document / observe their city to better inhabit it. Each class chose the space that interested them. Together we began to collect all the information that would allow us to better understand this public space through four tools: photography, drawing, fingerprinting and on-site collecting. Then, we selected the most interesting elements for the rest of the workshop. At the same time, the students conducted a research project on the identity of the place: what does it evoke for you? What place does he have in the city? Why are you going there? What is his story ? What will be his future? Sessions of exchanges and reflections to define this place. They looked for the words that would make sense and resonate the time of the final installation, giving their point of view as a young Langrois resident. In order for the word to make an image in space, we drew each letter from the shapes from the place. In the end, students installed this word / group of words outdoors. Through this project I wanted to give them the desire to invest the city in words by inviting them to speak in the public space. So we have: "PEACE" for the guardhouse (former military camp), "MAJESTUEUSE / MONUMENTALE / HISTORIQUE" for the cathedral of Langres, "TRAIT-D'UNION" for this isolated place creating the link between the two communes of Longeau and Percey and finally "VOYAGE" for Langres station.
For the entire project, I want to thank all the students for their participation all year long and their involvement.
BEFORE — First day with kids at the elementary schoolin Ayler Village. It’s the beginning of the tornado, we a re focus on the eyes of the tornade, it’s the meeting between the cold and warm wind. The size is not so big for kids, they are exploring the link between their movement and the line. From Lines to Letters.
DURING THE TORNADO - We are now entering in the tornado, and this time the scale is totally different, so we are going to work at uqo university to have a big enough room. Second day of workshop with kids from Aylmer Elementary School, we start by creating a list of words with the students to classify them as important or less important: explosion / destruction / panic / fast / impotence / wind ... more about sixty words divided into three categories. This first moment is important to understand the feeling/memory of the childrens.Then we created four tools giving four different gestures and postures, leading to the creation of four different tornado drawn by the students. Finally the tornado is growing to take a large part of the room. It will be formed by the students and structured by the set of the most important words, expressing the most violent feelings they may have felt or the most striking elements they have observed / experienced during this tornado. PENDANT LA TORNADE
AFTER THE TORNADO THERE ARE ONLY WORDS TO TESTIFY - For this last day of workshop, we return to Aylmer Elementary School to focus on the future. What happens after the tornado? The students created several sentences in seven words: « Tornado… » . The sentence have to be writing in the fill the word TORNADO, one word for on letter. After about twenty sentences and we vote for "TORNADO, NO MORE PANIC. NO MORE CRIS! ». Then students started to work on the typography by distorting each letter to create a typographic composition almost drawing posters.

1766/5000 Selected by Jack Lang and Oxmo Puccino as part of the event celebrating the thirty years of existence of the Arab World Institute, this work proposes a textual intervention addressing the link between France and Algeria in the form of a discussion. Symbolically, the IMA is an ideal place to treat this subject. For that, I invited the writer Z.Tahar, living in Algeria, to write a dialogue together. By this intervention, we highlight certain nodes, certain subjects such as that of the place of religion, the life of a student in France or Algeria ... etc. How can we create debate through the link between a text and its space? How can we create a link through textual intervention? Taking into consideration the space and the original architecture of the place, I proposed to use three columns, three pillars. Entirely translated into Arabic, the text begins with the column of Paris (1), to join that of Oran (2), in the center (3). Only through words, questions, this text draws a bridge, between two people, between two cultures, between two countries. In the form of a performance, we have with Zoulikha written this dialogue during the exhibition, in front of the visitors. The act of writing becomes performative. Intrigued, the work quickly brings the visitors to take part in the performance, thus, the debate / discussion settles in a dispassionate way, in the middle of the exhibition, around these three pillars on the link between France and Algeria. The work is now part of the museum, and remains visible. Photo credits: Jim Winter, Helias Terki. 3D picture by Florian Dach. Thank you to the entire IMA team for coaching and coaching during the exhibition.

I had the opportunity to collaborate with the studio dach&zephir, invited to draw CAN, the commemorative object of 250 years of EnsAD - Paris. The graphic conception arises from the object CAN, and begins with an editorial object highlighting their researches, in the course of a discussion. The editorial object is itself witness of their vision of the design as well as their working process, as studio. Afterward, I developed the graphic communication within the framework of the D’day Festival, to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Paris to draw the identity of the exhibition. To end, all the photos of the commemorative object, used for various supports, is realized by Rimasuu Studio.

Diploma supported in EnsAD — Paris with the honnors. Summary: work on the link between the body and the space during the act of writing via the plastic experiment. What role plays the hand for the man? Which way of expression does it represent? Is not the hand the tool which creates the bridge between a precise intention and a gesture(movement)? The hand is the starting point of his work, bringing him little by little to imply the body during the act of writing. Therefore, the ladder of his work evolves. He leaves the page to confront with the space. How the body expresses himself and adapts himself under duress of a space? How does a space become a support of writing? How does the body become a producer of forms? This passage in the affable public place in his research for new constraints bound to the spatial context. He decides to invest a space which seems neglected by the municipality: the banks of the canal. So exploited, this place becomes a way to remove the commonness of a space and to make a support of writing.
