Anne-Lisse Seusse
November 26th 2009
Conférence + Cocktail

*5@7 :: Thursday November 26th*

You are cordially invited to a public presentation by Anne-Lise Seusse – an artist originally from Lyon having just completed a three-month residency at OPTICA – this Thursday, November 26th. She will talk about her photographic practice, especially the research done in Montreal this fall. The conference will start around 5pm and will be followed by a cocktail. All are welcomed!

Originally from Lyon, Anne-Lise Seusse produces photographic work that broaches issues of territory, especially the micro phenomena of the ritualization of particular spaces through leisure activities. The creation of these singular communities – skeet-shooting retirees, or free riders traversing a military zone – generates situations that sometimes run counter to the location's "political" organization. Seusse's journalistic forays seek out such areas of slippage and confrontation.

OPTICA (Montreal) and art3 (Valence) initiated a combined residency and grant program for young artists. The host organizations’ primary functions are to serve as mediator for artists working in new environments and setting up meetings with professionals in the field. At the end of the three-month residency, the grant recipient makes his or her work public; a publication is co-produced by OPTICA and art3 the following year.
