Scopitone : nature.

Le climat (1/2).

Olivier Lazzarotti | 01.11.2022

To sing the climate is very often to summon the seasons, often separately, sometimes in their sequences, understood in the sense of temperate latitudes. But if the physical elements are sometimes mentioned, in the vast majority of cases what is at stake is a romantic encounter and nostalgic memory... [...]

Scopitone : nature.


Olivier Lazzarotti | 01.10.2022

Water, as an element of nature, whether it is raining or snowing, inspires songs in very different ways. And this suggests that there is no one nature, but that everyone understands and perceives it as they wish. [...]

Scopitone : nature.


Olivier Lazzarotti | 01.09.2022

As an element of nature, the "sun" is in the title of some French songs. The star can be the occasion to take up themes specific to classical Western poetry. But, in the end, the heart of the matter lies in a much more political scope. [...]

Faire la queue…

Patience et politique.

Jacques LévyOlivier Lazzarotti et Xavier Bernier | 01.06.2022

Queuing: although the expressions for it vary, the practice is probably one of the most widely shared experiences. However, it is far from being trivial. The observation of this singular experience, which plays with everyone's patience, speaks of cohabitation, and therefore of politics. [...]

Ton voisin Sébastien.

Si tu ne viens pas au commerce, le commerce ira à toi !

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.04.2022

Itinerant trade is a very old activity. Today, it is deployed in a variety of forms and contexts. Nowadays, store trucks are developing very different business proposals with a large variety of vehicles. Their commercial tours produce social links in specific networks. It is a model of original urbanity. [...]

Juste un doigt.

Le populaire et le populisme.

Jacques LévyOlivier Lazzarotti et Xavier Bernier | 01.03.2022

Of the wise and the foolish, of the moon and the finger, the popular proverb chooses the former. It is nevertheless advisable to question the obvious. Between the unchangeable visible and the works in progress, between imitation and invention, between forms of ease and a work on oneself, on others and on the World always difficult, who wants to make the fool does he not make the wise man? [...]


Les choses ne sont pas des gens.

Jacques LévyOlivier Lazzarotti et Xavier Bernier | 01.02.2022

Billions of ‘connected objects’ give new leverages for an ontological blurring between humans and things. The discussion should be taken back to basics in a context where actors, environments, and material or immaterial objects populate our daily lives. [...]


Jacques LévyOlivier Lazzarotti et Xavier Bernier | 01.12.2021

This work experiments with writing constructed by a combination and assembly of cut-out images. The discourse produced is based on a new visual grammar and seeks to show how space is broken up in order to be recomposed. To give substance to this project, a work of expression through images is proposed through a photograph of a district of Tokyo (Japan) likely to allow a kaleidoscopic writing and reading of an urban crossing. [...]

Là-haut, sur la montagne…

Ces morts qui nous habitent.

Jacques LévyOlivier Lazzarotti et Xavier Bernier | 01.11.2021

The presence of Freda Josephine McDonald at the Pantheon, France's national necropolis, does not only question the memories attached to each person buried here. It questions the role of the state and that of society as a whole in memorization processes. In addition, as an atypical and unique inhabitant of the place, Joséphine Baker reports significant changes in the choice of the figures honored here. [...]
