About the residency

The artist Armelle Caron was invited to intervene at the school in January and February 2015, on the occasion of a residency supported by the DRAC Languedoc-Roussillon and the Department of Education of the Région Languedoc-Roussillon.
Her project revolves around a precise protocol, which questions the relationship between students and their school. Armelle Caron set up workshops with 11th grade students, during which they worked on the plan of the school and, through the practice of drawing, were encouraged to evoke personal experiences and anecdotes linked to specific points of the plan.
This work enabled to develop a transformation of the original plan of the building, which then became a dynamic plan based on the student’s vision and experience. This narration was materialised through the student’s scale models, as they converted their drawings to 3D. The artist herself went through the same process as the students. Her production is a proposition/account of her experience at the school.
