Participative project during my 6 weeks long art residency at Le Point Commun in Annecy (Fr), 2017
Heritage stories is a project I developed during my 6 weeks long art residency at Le Point Commun in Annecy (Fr). It offers us to (re)discover the heritage of Annecy through the personal stories and memories of those who see and live there daily: its inhabitants.
Based on the idea that the heritage can only be a community property because everyone carries a share of its memories and its transmission, Heritage stories invited several generations of inhabitants to share a personal story, a memory or an anecdote related to well-known places in Annecy.
The miraculous fishings at the River Thiou, the plays on swings on le Pâquier - Champ de Mars of Annecy, the conversations among friends sitting on the Annecy beach, and the winding paths to reach the castle… all are personal memories which give us the opportunity to see the Annecy’s heritage in a different way.
Funny, innocuous or deeply lasting, 50 memories told by inhabitants from 7 to 95 years old were collected. They often resonate with our own stories, those of our parents and grand-parents, those of our children. That’s probably why they touch us so deeply. Finally, beyond Annecy’s heritage, Heritage stories talks about life stories and shared memories.
