Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann, Paris, 2017
Residency dates: October 2017
Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann was born in Paris, and is a graduate of Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Paris-Cergy. She currently lives and works in Paris and abroad. Laëtitia’s research is based on modern design, its representation and its failures. She sees her work as a kind of programme, where process is treated as inquiry – including the story of its own making – and approached as a critical laboratory. Every opportunity to present a new stage of research naturally brings new context and stories, which inform a site-specific proposal. References come from various fields – cinema, literature, history, architecture and design, all linked by their own narratives and potential for creating new layers of articulation.
About the Malta project:
For this residency, Laëtitia is proposing a site-specific project for the Blitz building. The project will take the form of an extended workshop, working with a group of local participants, to develop furniture for the space; furniture which is both hybrid and multifunctional.
Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann’s residency is also supported by the Embassy of France in Malta.
