About Lucei Camous
In Camous’ artistic and curatorial practice, they adopt a political perspective and work at the crossroads of artistic, theoretical, and activist forms. Mechanisms of power, dynamics of resistance and situated knowledge are notions that question and sustain all of their artistic efforts. Camous’ approach, rooted in intimate narratives, evolves around norms, their borders and the sensitive issues related to their desire to cross them. The experimentation and the elaboration of collective work practices informed the entire process of their project’s script. In 2019, Camous co-founded Modèle vivant.e, alongside Hélène Fromen, an artist and researcher and Linda DeMorrir, a DJ and model. Modèle vivant.e is an experimental and transfeminist collection of illustrations representing dissident bodies.

About the Paris/Vancouver Curatorial Residency
Alternating annually for four years between Paris and Vancouver, the aim of the program is to provide opportunities to develop curatorial projects and foster cultural exchange in response to contemporary art contexts in France and Western Canada. The program was established in October 2021, and this is its fourth iteration. Past residents include: Missla Libsekal (2021), Amy Kazymerchyk (2021), Clelia Coussonnet (2022), and Anne Bourrassé (2023).

Residents are hosted at Griffin Art Projects during their tenure. The residency provides travel, accommodation, and a stipend for three months, as well as a production budget to launch a public program, during which Bourrassé will have the opportunity to share her findings from her research in Vancouver.
