THE HOUSEWARMING PARTY VERNISSAGE: Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at 6pm.
Presentation of the "roommates" artists - by Flurina Rothenberger and Stefano Stoll, director of Images Vevey.

For its third exhibition, L’Appartement – Espace Images Vevey has given free rein to photographer Flurina Rothenberger. Born in Switzerland and raised in the town of Zuénoula in Ivory Coast, she devoted most of her career to taking photographs of the continent where she grew up. Her personal narrative and resolutely cooperative artistic practice demonstrate Africa’s multiple reality. In keeping with her strong unifying spirit, she has taken over all the rooms in L’Appartement, while respecting their specific uses, to showcase a series of projects in which collaboration is key.

In LES CHAMBRES, the NICE & UNFOLDED exhibition invites us to question our perceptions by juxtaposing Flurina Rothenberger’s photographs, Monika Schori’s spatial intervention, and the three issues of NICE, a collaborative magazine initiated by Flurina Rothenberger and Rahel Arnold.

In LE COULOIR, four children took on the role of curators to create A BRIDGE IS NOT SOMETHING TO LOOK AT. YOU WALK ACROSS IT TO FEEL IT. The young group chose fourteen of Flurina Rothenberger’s photographs taken throughout Africa and commented on their choices.

In LE SALON, the biography of the fashion designer Pathé’O is the focus of the eponymous editorial project PATHÉ’O that traces the history of fashion and the textile industry in West Africa. The exhibition preludes a book to be published in 2022 and highlights the work of Flurina Rothenberger in dialogue with archival images by the Burkinabe photographer and journalist Ben Idriss Zoungrana, and an illustration by Monika Schori.

Finally, the area called LE CINEMA screens N’ZASSA, a series of raw rhythmic videos hatched from correspondence between photography students in Vevey and slammers in Abidjan. Flurina Rothenberger and the Ivorian poet Bee Joe initiated this collaborative project as part of the activities the photographer conducts at the CEPV vocational school.

A magazine can be a public space, a gallery, and an academy, all in one. NICE elicits this diverse potential unique to editori- als. Flurina Rothenberger and Rahel Arnold gave the impetus for each of its three issues, bringing creatives together to combine their photography, journalism, visual design and social action as an editorial collective. This collaborative approach typifies Rothenberger’s entire artistic practice. Her photographs, taken in Ivory Coast and South Africa, form a visual essay. Monika Schori’s spatial intervention transforms our gaze, depending on where we position ourselves as viewers.

Four children aged between five and ten years old took on the role of curators to collectively choose a series of Flurina Rothenberger’s photographs taken throughout Africa. A display designed especially for children showcases their selection of fourteen images together with their explanations for their choices.


LE SALON: PATHÉ‘O (Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Switzerland)

Pathé’Os is a large-scale editorial project tracing the history of fashion and the textile industry in West Africa through the biogra- phy of Pathé’O, an Ivorian Burkinabe fashion designer and cou- turier. The exhibition preludes a book to be published in 2022 by Edition Patrick Frey and presents the work of Flurina Rothenberger in dialogue with archival images by the Burkinabe photographer and journalist Ben Idriss Zoungrana.


LE CINÉMA: N‘ZASSA (Ivory Coast, Switzerland)

Ivory Coast is a major world player in slam poetry. Under the guidance of Flurina Rothenberger and the Ivorian poet Bee Joe, CEPV photography students worked remotely in tandem with slammers in Abidjan to create visual poems. As they swapped words and images, their creative disciplines merged to hatch a series of raw rhythmic videos.
