#9 « Appel Manqué » (Prune Phi)
For this third edition, the search for origin links the work of the three resident artists: SMITH, Camille Carbonaro and Prune Phi. In the form of a photographic investigation, the trio explores the untraceable part of their identity, located on the cosmos, Italian migrations or the Vietnamese diaspora. Their
respective responses, both visual and textual, make up the quintessence of this box set entitled L’Origine manquante.
In the continuity of his project Désideration, SMITH creates Astroblème, a photographic opera co-written with the writer Lucien Raphmaj. Astroblème (a word composed of astron (“star”) and blêma (“blow”), which designates all the traces left by the impact of a meteorite or an asteroid on Earth) brings together texts and images to relate the crossed adventures of a desired human, played by Heriman Avy, and a Martian meteorite, NWA 10170, in transit between two worlds.
