#Research

ジェームズ・ボンドが駆け抜ける沿岸線、暖かくて穏やかで素敵なホテルやレストラン、色鮮やかな市場が広がるニースのイメージ像。ニースはカンヌ、モナコに続く観光名所として知られています。しかし、この街には理想と現実のギャップがあります。それは移民の多さやそれに伴う犯罪率の高さなど、旅行では見えてこない様々な問題が眠っています。かつてピカソやマティースが住んだこの街のアートシーンにもギャップは存在しました。このプロジェクトでは、「街とアートの繋がり。」と「なぜ若いアーティストが次々に流出していってしまうのか。」を様々な手段でリサーチしました。

 

What are your preconceptions of Nice?

Beautiful long beaches, elegant restaurants and cafés or a big fish market? Nice is well known as Monaco and Cannes’ neighbour, but there is a huge gap between the image of Nice and the reality. These include the problems faced by immigrants to the city, and the high crime rate both of which go unnoticed by the tourist. Big name artists like Matisse and Picasso used to live there, but there are also gaps in the contemporary reality of the art scene. In this project, I researched the relationship between the contemporary art scene and the town, and why the city cannot stop young artists leaving.

INSIGHT

各機関は連携を取って街とアートシーンのコネクションを強めようとしています。ただ、アーティストや学生が主体となる動きは見受けられず、初動が大きな変革のきっかけになると感じました。経済が成長し、その地のオリジナリティを失っていくことは起きやすい事例とも言えます。正にニースはその象徴的都市で、政治と芸術が拮抗し、街と人とアートが分断されている状況でした。一度拡散した状態を一つにまとめるためには、場所とタイミングが必要です。ニースの市民の声は巨大な封筒と共に市長に届けられました。

According to interviews and the intervention, Nice’s art scene is very divided and closed-off, even though there are many talented young artists. Each organisation has been trying to band together. However, the young artists don’t seem to have been reached yet. I was thinking what if they collaborate more intensively with artists from other cities, perhaps their opportunities could expand. How local art institutions can get especially, young who will leave out from there involved in local art scene. The key is opportunities for collaboration, and places to do it.
