The work is composed of nine chapters, including a foreword by the ethnographer and friend of A. In particular, at Camargo, Jeanne worked on the translation of chapters six through nine, and have now begun the detailed work of revising, correcting, and polishing the draft. She will also soon begin writing a scholarly introduction to the work. This will be about twenty-five manuscript pages in length. Some of the content and ideas for this introduction were generated as part of Garane presentation to the other Camargo Fellows during her residency.

These include having located a collection of photographs in the public domain that depict people and places included in Amkoullel and that date from , and that could possibly be included in the translated volume, and the realization that A. She has also reflected further on A.
In total, Jeanne translated about pages, which equals about half of the entire manuscript draft of about pages. With this preliminary work completed, she will now seek additional grants to help support the publication of this lengthy but important work. The Calanques National Park contains several boundaries. It encompasses frictions between entities that have to coexist: the nature and the city, but also between its very users such as hikers, inhabitants, and scientists.
He then log his observations in a residency diary. The project will therefore represent an investigation, a reflection on our connections with nature—and especially with the idyllic environment of the Calanques National Park. During the residency, Gruber has developped his new film project Inside Guillaume. The film is the third episode of the film series The Conspicuous Parts that enact a fluctuating focus on crucial choices made by individuals in cultural contexts and how they are being affected by global politics.
The plot of the film revolves around a collaborative artwork of two Cypriot artists who plan to rob the homes of renowned Belgian artists. Inside the home of the first victim, the artist Guillaume Bijl, an unexpected clash occurs… The dialectic between ethnography and art history will drive the phantasmagoric essay, Inside Guillaume. Giants, it turns out, are a consistent trope throughout the early modern period in Western Europe, both in fiction and in natural history. The discovery of giant bones across Europe only confirmed what humanist scholars and forgers had claimed, that at least some of our ancestors were giants and that we had been on a path of steady decline ever since distant antiquity.
These giants were often identified as national heroes, such as Siegfried or the Celtic king Theutobocus, and stories of ancient giants fed into national narratives that exalted the past, dovetailing neatly with humanist narratives that exalted Greek and Roman antiquity.
However, giant bones very soon also caused some disquiet, particularly among naturalists. Did they really belong to giant humans? How old were they? If they were not human bones, what were they, and how did they get to Europe? But nationalist narratives, built on three centuries of myth-making, remained. For the Camargo residency period, Carrie has focused on three areas of research: self-injury, breasts and femininity, and animation techniques. They will investigate self-injury and self-harm in religion, history, and current psychology.
The research also concentrated on recent studies of self-harm unrelated to religious affiliation, and the varied responses to these similar practices. Self-injury is often met with hostility in the American health industry, so they are curious to find the differences in Europe and what treatment methods are applied. They will investigate the relationship between femininity and breasts to explore gender non-conforming people, and histories of going outside of the gender binary in other cultures.
They also used this time to explore animation techniques and take in works at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Signs in Desert: An Aesthetic Cartography of the Sahara considers how contemporary writers and filmmakers transform the reductive and dangerous ways in which the African Sahara has long been mapped.

Taking off from a premise that maps are political fictions that reflect and facilitate state violence, Jill ask : what might happen if aesthetic works—films, photographs, novels—are taken seriously as cartographic acts that challenge ongoing forms of imperialism that presently dis organize our worlds? This book is a literary extension of recent historiographic work that rightly envisions the Sahara not as empty periphery but as vital and heterogeneous center.
The enduring caricature of the Sahara as a dangerous void in need of civilizing control is one with a long cartographic history. For centuries, the Sahara served as a shifting symbolic and geographical horizon of French empire, a natural barrier against which the borders of the Algerian colony specifically and the French empire more broadly were drawn and redrawn.

In 19th and 20th century cartographies, the Sahara appeared both as a blankness that beckoned with economic possibility and a threat that posed tremendous resistance to colonizing aims. This longstanding impression of emptiness and danger continues to prove useful to imperial and neoimperial interests. At h ome combines image and sound to chart an invisible territory of unknown dimension—that of the deadly afterlife of French atomic violence in the Sahara. These detonations were designed to be secret and invisible except in carefully choreographed media propaganda, and knowledge of this history has almost completely vanished from public memory despite widespread international protest at the time including 11 sessions of debate at the UN.
At h ome is an aesthetic cartography of an archival blank zone where taboos on naming the toxic trauma of French colonial violence intersect with the present nuclear secrets of both the French and Algerian nation-states. The Sahara has been framed as empty, invisible, menacing, and silent, and the ancient city of Timbuktu often sounds like the name of a place so remote and unreal that it is taken to be fiction. The film is an act of sonic mapping that sounds out a recessed translingual sonic, poetic, and musical archive. Rewriting the treatment for a feature length animated film about memory, creativity and perception.
This film follows one woman's quest to keep creating, as she lives with a rare memory condition. Her work consists of animated interviews with people about neurological phenomena, such as hallucinations, face blindness, synesthesia, loss of proprioception and motion blindness. These self-imposed assignments are her way of holding on to her identity, and a way of exploring, subconsciously, what is happening to her. The segments created by Rita are animated in different techniques, her effort to express different modes of perception in the best way she knows how.
We see sections in paint-on-glass, sand animation, painted plastic cut-outs, paper puppets and charcoal animation. But we also see sections animated from what we come to realize are Rita's personal photos, which help us learn more about what she is experiencing. As the film progresses the viewer realizes that the film itself is in fact, an artifact: Rita's current, and forever final, film, which she is adding to without ever finishing. At Camargo the treatment for this project was reconfigured and re-written, ready to be fleshed out in the script stage.
Animated tests were also conducted to use in a teaser trailer for the project. Dreaming Gave Us Wings recontextualizes the myth of flying Africans as a factual historical occurrence. In this self portrait series the body experiences a physical conjuring of flight to remove self and black women from an oppressive world and find peace in the psychic space. Synonymous with liberation, levitation is a mode of transportation between time and space.
Dreaming activates hidden archives where stories occupy the physical and spiritual realm. Inspired by the importance of afrodiasporic flight within folklore and history, these images house a deep remembrance of survival and freedom. During her residency at the Camargo Foundation, Cheryl Pope focused on fragrance, sculpting poetic scents inspired by new intersections. The Museon Arlaten, a museum dedicated to the ethnography of Provence, located in Arles, and the Camargo Foundation invited artist Guylaine Renaud and cellist Guillaume Saurel for a residency to create a concert inspired by salt objects from the museum collection, which explores the world of salt workers in the region of Camargue.
They performed during a concert at the Camargo Foundation on June 8, Whilst in residence at Camargo, Felwine Sarr wor on the writing of an historical novel entitled Kansala. Kansala is the capital of Gabou, an animist Negro-African empire that existed in the Guineo-Senegambian region from the 13th to the 19th century.

Around the 19th century, in the Senegambian region, Fulani monarchies begin to Islamise the region through Jihaad. The Gabou refuses to convert to the new religion and announces a decisive battle in Kansala, the capital. He exiles his sister Sira and his brother Maissa to the Niomi, in the northwestern part of the empire, in an effort to save the niaanco royal nobility of Gabou , so that the lineage does not disappear.
Gabou is at its peak with the Atlantic trade in gold, ivory and slaves with the Portuguese, French and English. The Fulani of Futa Jallon also see in the fall of Gabou, the possibility of having access to the sea and of profiting from this trade. Felwine Sarr wants to tell the story of the end of a world, and specifically how the Kaabunke faced this, knowing that there was no other solution.
But also, that of a life which is reborn elsewhere by the exile of Sira and Maissa towards the Niomi. During this residency, Jack Sheen has developped a new work for sixteen solo voices. Each singer will have their own autonomous part, operating as an individual rather than part of a coordinated ensemble. Much of his music evades dramatic linear narratives in music, often through simple ideas such as repetition and stasis, whilst questioning more elusive notions such as memory, expectation, and climax. Through this piece Sheen aims to further probe these ideas, balancing large blocks of material alongside and on-top of one another in an almost sculptural way.
She is working on a book about the intersection of family and national secrets in the nuclear city of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. She is interested in the stories we tell about ourselves, personally, publicly, culturally, the stories institutions tell, and the intersections and fissures between them. In Cassis, she plans to research the ITER project, the world's largest experimental fusion reactor, which proposes to build a star on Earth, while meditating on the characteristics, causes, and consequences of brilliance, both literal and figurative.
All-American Foods Inc. Jack Armstrong, the All-American boy can self-identify. Considering his heritage, he was interested in how he himself is, can, and cannot be All-American. As a Composer in Residence at Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France, Uzuri visited Black Madonna shrines in Marseilles and Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, integrate her research from previous international Black Madonna sojourns and begin developing the libretto and composing the score for her forthcoming aformentioned large music work Songs of Sanctuary for the Black Madonna.
By cataloging, photographing, drawing and notetaking, Anderson has focused his time on documenting the materiality of the 17th and 18th French weavings found in the Museum collection. He incorporated material choices, observed at the museum, in the weaving of his tapestries. These sounds, made from field recordings, interviews, and audio diaries, highlight several aspects of the Marseille port area such as traffic, demolitions, construction sites and the "executive noise" of new office buildings and shopping centers.
Over time, in this part of the city, new soundscapes have emerged as a result of this urban transformation, political movements, and the emergence of new forms of daily resistance. Beyond the different sound strata, new rhythms, new materials, and new narratives appear. During their residency at the Camargo Foundation, located a day's walk from Marseille, Kathrin Wildner and Katharina Pelosi worked on the echoes of this urban noise by asking themselves a question: What happens to this sound material when listened to from Cassis?
Taxation was an important tool of colonial domination and a fundamental lever for capitalist penetration and development. It underpinned the French colonial project and crudely exposed the nature of economic relations. Colonial tax structures and policies were thus constantly resisted and debated, requiring careful handling by French colonial authorities.
