Champ de visions

Mathilde Rosier - Champ de visions
Champ de visions documents the conception of the eponymous installation by French artist Mathilde Rosier. In 2023, at the invitation of the Mucem, the artist, then in residence at the Cirva, sowed glass "seed-eyes" on the façade of the Centre de Conservation et de Ressources (Marseille), and in the interior spaces open to the public. This little book-object offers a perspective on this gesture, through a series of images and collages, as well as a three-part interview.
In 2023, Mathilde Rosier created an installation for the Mucem's Centre de conservation et de ressources (CCR), which she named Champ de visions. On the building's façade, the artist has planted glass "seed-eyes", which she imagined during a residency at the Cirva, Marseille.
In this little book-object, the artist chooses to document and unfold her research process in reverse, from the vertical field formed by the CCR facade to the Cirva studio. A three-part interview, in which Mathilde Rosier is joined by Marie-Charlotte Calafat, Head of Collections and Documentary Resources at the Mucem, and Stanislas Colodiet, Director of the Cirva, highlights the dialogue initiated by the artist around the gaze, rurality and the meanings of the word "culture".
Mathilde Rosier (born 1973 in Paris) is a French artist who lives and works in Burgundy and Basel. As a multimedia artist, her mediums include dance, painting, video and installation. Her work is nourished by her interest in the physical and psychological experience associated with ritual, rural folklore and agrarian rites. After numerous exhibitions in galleries in France and abroad, as well as a solo show at the Jeu de Paume (Paris) in 2010, she was nominated for the Aware Prize in 2022. That same year, she began a residency at Cirva (Marseille), and opened a solo show at the Fondation d'entreprise Pernod Ricard (Paris).
