Meeting October 24 2019 at the Vence Museum, Emile Hugues Foundation, 2 Frêne square, 06140 Vence, phone : 04.93.58.15.78
Since several years the Vence Museum organizes an artists calling for arousing passion around art among the audience in partnership with some specialized organisations (Libraries, schools). This years the winners are the writer Sigolène Vinson and the cartoonist Stéphane Drillon. Sigolène Vinson begins writing when she was 16 years old because she is filled in admiration for Romain Gary without thinking that one day she could be printed. She follows law studies for becoming lawyer and commiting herself in politics but leaves it quickly because her real passion stays writing. Sigolène Vinson works for the "Charlie Hebdo" paper and has succeeded to escape to the January 7 2015 killing. The Sigolène Vinson books deals with Africa a place she has already lived in ("Courir après les ombres", Plon editions) and Corse island ("Le coiffeur" Tripode editions, "Les jouisseurs", "Maritima" l'Observatoire editions). With the help of the editor of the Tripode house editions she meets the cartoonist Stéphane Drillon. A creativeness complicity builds itself between the both when they explore the people daily life in Paris for "Ce qu'on ne voit pas...Paris" book. The artists residence will spend twelve years between October 2019 and May 2020.
