Les terminales AMC avec Frédérique Chevé à Musidora

Frédérique Chevé, a 47-year-old artist holding degrees in Art and History of Art, spent a decade in the USA before settling in Lunel. Despite being considered a sedentary artist due to her various locations throughout her career, she embraces a nomadic spirit, participating in sociological experiences during residencies lasting from one week to four months.

Chevé's presentation starts with the unconventional approach of a house clearance, revealing the masterpiece "Levons notre étendard" (2021), co-created with Paillade middle school pupils. The artwork symbolizes secularism using textiles donated by the students.

Her "Seconde Peaux" exhibition delves into the complexities of identity using textiles, inspired by Texan craftsmanship. The title symbolizes how clothing reflects diverse identities.

Another noteworthy piece, "D'ici et D'ailleurs" (2022), created with 900 inhabitants of Paillade, explores migration and identity by asking the question "Where are you from?" The exhibition delves into the history of segregation in the USA during the 60s, featuring influential figures like Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King.

Frédérique Chevé's work connects African migration to Europe with historical migrations to Ellis Island, exploring themes of unity, inequality, and the American dream. By contrasting segregation with the pursuit of equality, she sheds light on African American experiences in the 1960s. Through her art, Chevé raises awareness about challenges in conflict zones and impoverished areas, advocating for equality and reflecting on fundamental principles like life, liberty, and happiness.
