Ouverture d’atelier : Marielle Chabal


The CAC – la synagogue de Delme invites you to the open studio of Marielle Chabal on Wednesday 29th August at 6.30 pm at 10b rue des cigognes, Lindre-Basse.

“It’s a first encounter. Marielle Chabal shows up and stuns you with the crowd of people she has up her sleeve. Because there will soon be several thousand of them living through her in the desert, in the vicinity of ancient Jericho. There, in 2023, after provoking the collapse of the financial markets, feminist hackers founded Al Qamar. An ultra-libertarian city with cheeky architecture erected on the site of a disused Israeli colony, and people are now rushing to the gates in hope of being accepted. A post-capitalist community where private property and the nuclear family no longer exist, where feverish, diluted nights follow days ordered by task-sharing. Such is the “moon” city whose scenery the artist has been setting up since 2017 (it all started during her post-diploma studies at the at École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon, and while taking part in the el-Atlal residency in Jericho), and she hopes to finish shaping it in 2019, when real time reaches the point where her story begins. For now, texts, sculptures, installations and films construct this heterotopia with its novel social contract, where disillusionments are already taking shape. (…)`

In Lindre-Basse, taking advantage of her time in residency with the Synagogue de Delme, Marielle Chabal is sewing—in the literal and figurative senses. She undertook to make dozens of costumes for members of the community, out of light military parachute canvas. As accessories, they will transpose to the screen the unbridled creativity experienced every day within the city’s walls. But it is also a whole script that is being woven and made concrete, thanks to this retreat in Moselle.”

The artist residency programme is organised by the CAC – la synagogue de Delme in collaboration with the Lorraine Regional Natural Park and the Commune of Lindre-Basse.
