Semin'R une plateforme de recherche en Conservation-Restauration

Publié le 13 Mars 2017

 

Semin'R est la plateforme utilitaire de l'Unité de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en et sur la conservation-restauration [URI-cr] d'artefacts artistiques et patrimoniaux à l'Ecole Supérieure d'Art d'Avignon (ESAA).

Cet espace veut contribuer à l'approche critique, épistémologique et méthodologique d'une discipline au croisement de sciences exactes, humaines, sociales, et même de pratiques artistiques.

Dans cette perspective, Semin'R engage une réflexion qui excède le carcan idéologique d'un monopole institutionnel et centralisé du discours sur la "restauration", encore trop souvent confinée au rang d'activité auxiliaire.

Il ambitionne notamment de rendre visibles et compte des interrogations qui concernent le champ d’intervention de cette discipline, en fonction du statut, de l’ontologie et du régime des objets que celle-ci est appelée à prendre en charge. Les facteurs qui entrent en jeu sont multiples, qu’il s’agisse d’objets d’art ou d’artefacts culturels ; ils réclament une attention particulière et déterminent pour une large part les approches et les hypothèses envisageables, autant que les exigences auxquelles le conservateur - restaurateur doit faire face. Par le choix de ses thèmes, le séminaire "art et artefactualité" initié par son mentor Jean-Pierre Cometti, propose un parcours soucieux d' apporter un éclairage sur des questions qui en marqueront les étapes.

Semin'R is the utilitarian platform for the Interdisciplinary Research Unit into and on Conservation (restoration included) of artistic and Heritage artefacts [IRU-cr] in the Superior Art School of Avignon / France.

This space wants to contribute to the critical, epistemological and methodological approach of a discipline being in the crossing of exact, human, social sciences, and even certain artistic practices. In this perspective, Semin' R engages a reflection which exceeds the ideological hold of a monopoly institutional and centralized of the rhetoric on the "restoration", which is still too often confined in the rank of auxiliary activity.

Semin'R is occupied with projects related to the maintenance and conservation of both contemporary visual artworks and ethnographic artifacts. This online research notebook aims to examine the field of conservation applications, depending on status, ontology and system of objects taken in charge by the conservator-restorer. Here field-related questions on a range of problems are raised for discussion. The involved factors are numerous, whether of artworks or cultural artefacts; they require a special attention and determine to a large extent the approaches and possible hypotheses, as well as the requirements that the conservator -restorer faces. The interests of Research revolve around means of production, appropriation, and signification related to social situations. The critical inquiry investigates the changing positions of objects, the aspects of authenticity, the images and discourses in socio-cultural processes by taking into account several viewpoints and diverse medial contexts. One of the challenges of this Research is to direct the students to detach themselves of a static definition of objects, and to develop and argue an interdisciplinar approach during the process of engaging with the case they study.

The " art and artefactualité " seminar that Jean-Pierre Cometti has initiated, is a very lung of this project. It proposes a program wishing to give a perspective on questions which will mark the stages with it. It is intended to open up to resources of other disciplines and to current researches. The works of the [IRU-cr] focuses on the crossing of conservation of artworks or ethnographic artifacts, and human sciences such as philosophy, anthropology, sociology , history and art history. It is intended to open up on current and future researches for students of second and third cycles , providing also a set of tools into links, as well as for teachers and external researchers interested in these topics.
