Camille Dumond (1988 - Lives and works in Geneva) is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice takes the form of films, installations, objects and editorial projects. She is a graduate from the HEAD-Geneva work.master program, after studying at the ESBANM (Nantes) and the HKB (Leipzig). She has been directing films in which narratives develop around places that respond to societal rules (an airport, a building roof, a park, an art gallery, a private garden), depicting individuals within a gregarious existence. In her fictions, the dialogues are based on field interviews or writings, which are then replayed by actors. Camille Dumond's visual practice also takes the form of installations and objects thought out before or after the films, constituting a form of extension outside narratives and figuration. In 2020, she exhibited at the Cube-independent art room (Rabat), and at La Becque (Tour-de-Peilz) where the first issue of her series Entretiens pour un film was launched (Clinamen publisher). Her films were shown the same year on the platforms of Cherish (Geneva) and Nobudge (New York), as well as at the Art Madrid '20 and artgenève fairs, and as part of the Almusibli panorama / 5th floor programme at the Centre d'art contemporain de Genève. In 2021, she will exhibit in Geneva, Basel, CAN Neuchâtel, the FRAC-Pays de la Loire in Nantes, and at the Saint-Flour Biennale in France.
