Las Medulas, 2013, ECAL/Prune Simon-Vermot

In “Eukalyptus & Vegas,” two photographers bring together two different projects on identity. For Michal Florence Schorro, “Eukalyptus” refers to the search for her roots and for her “Heimat”: an ever-changing place from which she gathers objects, landscapes, and the distinctive gestures that come to the surface. For Prune Simon-Vermot, the word “Vegas” recalls her newly discovered Spanish origins, and drives her to investigate herself and the culture of her new country.

 

Michal Florence Schorro (1987, Männedorf, CH) et Prune Simon-Vermot (1987, La Chaux-de-Fonds, CH) vivent et travaillent à Bienne et à La Chaux-de-Fonds. Elles sont toutes deux diplômées du Master « art direction et photographie » de l’Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne. En 2014, Michal Florence Schorro ainsi que Prune Simon-Vermot avec Jennifer Niederhauser Schlup font partie des 10 finalistes du 18e Prix Jeunes Talents du vfg (association de créateurs photographes).
