la Cité Internationale des Arts
The support provided by the Cité internationale des arts for cultural development is based on the idea of a project: each artist organizes his or her residence independently and can submit a project to the Cité internationale arts. Thus, through several programs, the resident-artists can present an exhibition, a concert, a meeting, a projection or a performance. A number of events at the Cité internationale des arts are also organized in partnership with other structures.
The Cité internationale des arts is also a relay of current events Off-The-Cité by the artists in residence, through a dedicated section.
The “Concert-Cité” offers the opportunity for musicians in residence at the Cité internationale des arts to present a short program to a public. Classical contemporary, jazz, electronic or even folk, these evenings reflects the diversity of artist welcomed.

Azeite De Leos (Brazil)

Links between drawings and writing are the basis of Azeite De Leos artistic research and production. The work of the Argentinian artist, illustrator and educator focuses on the process of image printing and creating.

Jorge Luis Borges explains that chaos seems to only belong to God. Him who had to destroy his work after creating it. Why is this a human obsession to always produce things, and as for an artist, to create? Is it not our right to destroy, to start over, or even, like God, to fail?

Through the process of Azeite De Leos, we are discovering a way to start over. We can destroy as a mean to recreate. We can live and rehearse, rehearse to live, and above all, take the opportunity to rebuild things in a new way, these imperfect and incomplete processes human beings are.

Aleksandras Vozbinas (Lithuania)

As a contemporary artist, Aleksandras Vozbinas likes to use contrasting artistic means of expression and unusual combinations. His manner of creating is not based upon mimesis as in traditional painting, he enjoys self-expression. Painting as a game and free will of an artist are the most important things to him: they prompt the structure of a picture and modelling of situation.

"The colour and structure of the painting are of great importance to me. The process of painting allows me to become a Creator for a moment, it gives me the ability to model situations by using lines, colours, planes and surfaces. In this way, each time, you discover something interesting and unexpected. With the help of colour, through an invisible entity, I find a way into the visible world." Aleksandras Vozbinas

Hui-Chen Yun (Taiwan)

“But dark clouds massed on the horizon
The border disappears because of the invisible hands
But the wall has not yet fallen
Time is the only weapon to confront the existence
But the wall has not yet fallen
If I continue to wait
In the space of reverberation
The sailing destination may be clearer and clearer.”
Hui-Chen Yun

Simone Etter (Switzerland)

Simone Etter works, teaches, researches and experiments in the field of public, institutionalised spaces. Her aim is to create collective artistic actions and performances in these places, whose purpose is not originally artistic.

Her art consists in organising experimental explorations of space and actions in living environments, trying to understand spatial perception and expanding spatial experience. Simone Etter means to transform spaces and create room in which art is made possible; spaces that enable participative performances in their real social and spatial conditions.
