Workshop with the students of Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts d’Angers.
In conversation with Ernesto Oroza and professor David Enon, students will be invited to investigate notions of standardization, transparency and openness, based on models from the Ulm school of design as well as from Oroza’s collection of objects transformed by Cuban citizens for alternative uses. The outcomes of the workshop will be presented during Ernesto Oroza’s Open studio from Thursday November 17 to Saturday November 19 (see below).
Tuesday November 15 from 8 p.m to 10 p.m
At Villa Vassilieff
NOSTALGIA CUBANA - PROJECTION
Ernesto Oroza will present two films rarely seen in France, around the cult figure of cuban film-maker Waldo Fernandez, aka « Marakka », whose practice is based on piracy and the appropriation of images. Since 1983, Waldo Fernandez “Marakka” has been assembling an archive of Cuban audiovisual memory. The collection–which functions commercially under the “Marakka 2000” brand–relies and exploits a loophole created by current Cuba-U.S. diplomatic relations, and is sustained by a precise and astute understanding of current procedures regarding the protection of copyright in the U.S.
Nostalgia cubana, by Waldo Fernandez (Marakka) (1986, duration: 55’33’’) is composed of sequences of landscapes taken from several cuban films. This film is often used as a decor or "ambiance" in many Cuban restaurants and bars in Miami.
Marakka 2012, by Magdiel Aspillaga & Ernesto Oroza (2012, duration: 34’49’’, language: Spanish with English subtitles) explores the work of the filmmaker, « a monument to piracy ».
Before the screening, Nicolas Maigret & Maria Roszkowska will present The Pirate Book, a compilation of stories about sharing, distributing and experiencing cultural contents outside the boundaries of local economies, politics, or laws.
Thursday November 17 to Saturday November 19 from 2 p.m to 7 p.m
In the Pernod Ricard Studio at Villa Vassilieff

Cuban artist, designer and writer Ernesto Oroza opens the door of his studio to share the outcome of his research and the works produced during his residency in Paris with the Pernod Ricard Fellowship. Items from his collection of objects transformed by Cuban citizens for alternative uses will be displayed alongside pirate cuban films, artists books and prints by Oroza, as well as new works investigating how the contemporary processes of standardization and normalization, stigmatized by some intellectual discourses, can, paradoxically, act as vectors to expand vernacular practices, ideas and everyday tactics. Works produced during a workshop with students from the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts d’Angers will also be on view. The artist will be present.
