Jessy Razafimandimby at KNMA Saket in India

Jessy Razafimandimby (born in 1995, Madagascar) lives and works in Geneva. His work gives new life to a world inherited from the past, paying particular attention to the history of interior decoration and ornamentation, as well as to social conventions and “good manners” traditionally linked to a conservative lifestyle and promoted by a classist bourgeois system. Figures sometimes seem to melt into the work, mov­ing into new, complex forms that reveal Razafimandimby’s interest in the question of becoming. It’s not so much what we become, but with whom we become it.

Models of intimacy can be found in objects that are like us, by us, for us, where the foundations of our human spirit can find refuge and sometimes offer themselves to the curious. Do we have enough space in our drawers to bury our secret desires and ills, the better to be revealed later or never?

In this workshop participants will work with the world of secrets, the hidden and the invisible, and experiment with protection, like windows under a curtain with a narrow view of the world. Hats, headgears and costumes that can be worn by individuals and groups together will be made over the course of the four days, as participants explore points of view through listening, movement and discourse.
