In today’s climate of uncertainty and emergency, a tiny fraction of the population is beginning to withdraw into their homes. Turning their homes into bunkers, they are stockpiling all manner of manufactured goods and foodstuffs. Survivalists prepare for climate catastrophes and nuclear winter, but will they remember the landscape when it collapses?

Printed image workshop (engraving, transfer, stamps) “home-made” using all kinds of salvaged materials from everyday life, with the aim of recreating large-scale landscapes on paper. The aim of this workshop is to reflect on the textures and patterns present in the shapes and materials of everyday objects, and to try to arrange and print them. The theme of survivalism, meanwhile, is a roundabout way of desacralizing printmaking and demonstrating that this practice can be used in unconventional ways, without the possession of expensive materials, with a great deal of freedom and imagination.

Bring your old sheets and tea towels, your sanding paper and used sponges, save your cans and metal lids, your plastic bottles and caps, your paper and cardboard, bring all the little and big things you don’t know what to do with today, but might need tomorrow…


Camille Peyré

After a hotel school and three years of expatriate jobs in Ireland, England and Spain, Camille decided to reorient himself towards the artistic world in 2018 by completing a preparatory year at the Beaux-Arts de Marseille. He then obtained the Diplôme National d’Arts at the Haute École des Arts du Rhin (HEAR) in Strasbourg, and went on to graduate with a master’s degree in photography from L’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de la Cambre in Brussels.
