The artists duo Marie Ouazzani & Nicolas Carrier will develop their research project, entitled Percolation, based on the coffee family. Orignially used as medicine, the trade and acclimation of coffee have become economic and ecological issues in the globalised world. Through writing, video and photography, the duo propose a new lecture of the history of the beverage through the prisme of medecine, and imagine the evolution of the coffee in the context of climate change.
Working and living together since 2015, Marie Ouazzani (1991, France) & Nicolas Carrier (1981, France) develop their practice through discussion, research and exploration of urban territories and their peripheries. The duo has exhibited at Maison Salvan, Ygrec-ENSAPC, 19e Biennale WRO, Casa da Cerca, CAC Passerelle, Manifesta 13, 2nd Lagos Biennial, Mains d’Oeuvres, 3 bis f, 5e Odessa Biennale, 61e Salon de Montrouge et Darat al Funun. Their work has received support from the Fondation des Artistes et de l’Institut français, the CNAP and the DICRéAM (CNC) and the region Île-de-France (FoRTE).
Yann Chateigné Tytelman, guest curator for the 2024 residency, will be guiding laureates over the course of the working sessions.
