VIENS PRENDRE LE THÉ (Let’s have tea)


Artist residency in a highschool
Installation. Written documentation, reflexions, folders and handmade wooden desk.

I worked, as an artist, in a highschool of an unprivileged area of my hometown. Every Thursday, I offered students tea-tasting sessions. The goal, as well as providing traditional knowledge about tea making, was to create and offer a peaceful and secure space for students who felt anxious and overwhelmed at school. Serving tea was a starting point to get to know the students and to start conversations.

In order to protect the students, the project was documented through an audio diary in which I describe different steps and stages of the project and reveal my doubts, thoughts and fears.
