To announce the new prize LE BAL AWARD FOR YOUNG ARTISTS with ADAGP, we’re pleased to present the exhibition EMPIRE by Samuel Gratacap 

“In Tunisia, 5 km away from Libya’s frontier, Choucha camp became a transit area for several hundred thousand Sub-Saharan refugees escaping Libyan civil war. Since 2011 when first appeared the camp in the Tunisian desert, I followed refugees in their everyday life. My photographs and video works reflect the space-time specificities of this living place shaped by wait. Wait due to the different stages of asylum applications for refugees, combined with the tension of those suspended destinies in a same temporary site that became perennial by circumstances, to finally disappear”
-Samuel Gratacap (born in 1982)

 

A book to accompany the exhibition will be co-published by LE BAL and Filigranes Editions, designed by Pierre Hourquet and the artist in collaboration with Guillaume Gratacap. 
The book received support from Hugues Aubry.

Curator : Pascal Beausse

The exhibition received the support of ADAGP, SFR, Fonds de dotation Agnès B., Institut Français de Tunisie and CNAP, fonds d'aide à la photographie documentaire contemporaine.
Samuel Gratacap received the support of FNAGP / Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques et Plastiques, session 2015, for his video project Les Naufragé(e)s.
