Tique Salon #13: ImmoRefugee and Thomas Nolf
During Tique Salon #13, Defrost Studio will talk about their project ‘ImmoRefugee’ and Thomas Nolf will present his publication ‘Peculiar Artifacts in Bosnia and Herzegovina’.
ImmoRefugee is a publication based on a photographic project composed by 110 pictures showing the different typologies of houses in Calais, build by refugees. The work was meant to give a different perspective on the topic of migration, talking about a unique city that existed and it’s probably never going to be replicated. In Calais, more than 6,000 refugees used to live in the same conditions shown here. Now the camp has been demolished. Some of the refugees wanted to reach the UK, while others preferred to apply for asylum in France. Here we imagined how it would have been to find a home in the camp. Each house shown in here is real and handmade by the refugees themselves.
At Tique Salon, Marco Tiberio and Maria Ghetti of Defrost Studio will talk about the process of the project. The exhibition ImmoRefugee is currently on view at Tique | art space.
Belgian photographer Thomas Nolf will present his publication ‘Peculiar Artifacts in Bosnia and Herzegovina’. The book is the result of a 4-year project in Bosnia-and-Herzegovina where Thomas Nolf came across the existence of pyramids, stone spheres and other peculiar artifacts, discovered by Semir Osmanagich and his team. Aiming to draw an alternative biography that counteracts the post-war disillusion, Nolf photographed, intervened and ultimately tried to pedestal the phenomena as a history to believe in.
All talks will be in English.
