Residency dates: 7 October – 3rd November

Blitz and Valletta 2018 are pleased to announce Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann as the next Blitz Artist in Residence. Laëtitia was born in Paris, and is a graduate of Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Paris-Cergy. She currently lives and works in Paris and abroad. Laëtitia’s research is based on modern design, its representation and its failures. She sees her work as a kind of programme, where process is treated as inquiry – including the story of its own making – and approached as a critical laboratory. Every opportunity to present a new stage of research naturally brings new context and stories, which inform a site-specific proposal. References come from various fields – cinema, literature, history, architecture and design, all linked by their own narratives and potential for creating new layers of articulation.

About the Malta project:

For this residency, Laëtitia is proposing a site-specific project for the Blitz building. The project will take the form of an extended workshop, working with a group of local participants, to develop furniture for the space; furniture which is both hybrid and multifunctional.

The Blitz Residency Programme is supported by the Valletta 2018 Foundation. Blitz is supported by Arts Council Malta through a Cultural Partnership Agreement.
