The fiction archive at the heart of institutions
Interview with Claire Ducène and Julie Nio
How can archive centers combine their own study and conservation needs with artistic approaches and public sensibilities?
How do artists appropriate archives today?
What is the place of the institution and the archive in these contemporary artistic approaches?
How can institutions build bridges between different modes of research?
Where are the limits and impassable beacons of plastic research in the face of the characteristics of the archive?
So many open questions that artists ask themselves, as well as archivists and all the actors of the socio-cultural environment who multiply the relations between the scientific and artistic environments. The archive center tends to open its doors more and more to the public, reinforcing meetings, residencies and exhibitions. And from a new angle, the public discovers the archive in a renewed form, through the eyes of plastic research and fictionalization.
These questions will be addressed in the company of Claire Ducène, visual artist and curator of the exhibition Memories Gone Wild, and Julie Nio, in charge of artistic and cultural programming at the Archives de Bordeaux Métropole.
