Traversées collectives (Collective crossings) is an artistic creation residency led by the artist Nour Awada around the practice of the body and the theme of transmission with the students of the 3rd Prépa Pro and UPE2A classes of the Fernand Léger high school in Ivry-sur-Seine.
With the support of the Region Île-de-France and echoing the research developed by Nour Awada at the Laboratoire des Arts de la Performance (LAP), Crédac is partnering with the Fernand Léger high school in Ivry-sur-Seine to imagine a residency with the students on the theme of transmission. During the school year, the artist and the students work on the realization of a performance and develop a process of documentation through writing and photography, which will lead to a publication at the end of 2020.
Born in Beirut in 1985, Nour Awada graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris in 2012, after a degree in Plastic Arts at the Sorbonne. Winner of the François Schneider Prize in 2012, the Icart Prize in 2015 and the Prix International Françoise pour l’Œuvre Contemporaine in 2018, her sculpture and video work has been exhibited in France and abroad. She is the founder of LAP - Laboratoire des Arts de la Performance, and for the past two years she has been developing a performance practice, which she activates individually or collectively, using professional or amateur performers. The most recent ones are Toucher le soleil with teenagers from a secondary school in Seine-Saint-Denis (near Paris) in partnership with the art center Mains D’Œuvres, Les passeurs at Palais de Tokyo with the artists of LAP on an invitation from Réseau Tram, and Le bruit et le signal at Lafayette Anticipations performed by data scientists from the company Ekimetrics. Nour Awada is currently in residence at the Ivry contemporary art center - le Crédac and invited artist at the Fondation Thalie - Brussels - in 2021.
