“Transports” is a photographic project by Jean-David Delépine. Its principle: from any moving transportation mean, he makes photos perpendicularly to the displacement direction, of the landscape that is offered to his glance, without any possible control. Far from a photography that would be posed, centered, overly aesthetic, the raw photographic matter is selected later by the photographer, when he comes back from his trips by plane, boat, train, bus, car, lift or conveyor belt. Sometimes, the artefacts due to moving, such as out of perspective foregrounds, ghost images, unfocused parts due to movement, vibrations due to the instability of the vector, contribute to the dreamlike sensation of travelling.
In the 70’s several countries from South Latin America went into military dictatorship. The academic community had to face harassment, closures of faculties and sometimes, incarcerations, which forced them into exile. We are interested in the case of several mathematicians from the probability and statistics area, who had to exile and in the academic and personal consequences of this phase of history.
In the “Caleta El Membrillo“, a fishermen creek some hundred meters far from Valparaíso container port, gather on each Saturday the dancers of the ”Baile gitano de San Pedro”. They meet amongst the back and forths of the fishermen, to rehearse their dance in honour to the Virgin, in front of the statue of San Pedro that dominates the creek.
Two continents, five artists, “Tissages et métissages” is a show which links old and new world, Brazil and Europe, with the ensemble Alma Brasileira: around Caroline Magalhães‘s voice (she is the fruit of both cultures), Cécilia Bouchet-Ferrier‘s cello and Anne-Catherine Kaiser‘s piano. The interpretation of Brazilian and European music of the 20‘s is complemented by scenic performances by Didier Beauvalet and by screen projections by Jean-David Delépine.
