Congratulations to Marie-Pierre Burquier, the new recipient of the Terra Foundation Immersion scholarship. This grant enables a Larca graduate student to attend classes in the Art History department of an American university, followed by research trips to various cities and institutions in the US.
‘I am currently enrolled in the third year of my PhD and my research dissertation focuses on the reappropriation of classic Hollywood imagery in contemporary experimental film practices and video art.
During my stay at the USC Roski School of Art, at the University of Southern California, I’m hoping to dig deeper into North-American experimental cinema and to develop a network of contacts in the US. I’m also planning to visit several archives, such as New-York’s Anthology Film Archive, in order to discover films that revisit classic Hollywood imagery. I’m also looking forward to visiting the Joseph Cornell Study Center in Washington to understand the role played by Hollywood Cinema in the work of the American artist Joseph Cornell. Then, I hope to visit Roger Jacoby archives too, located in the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh. Living in the United States will also give me the opportunity to interview project artists I am currently working on and to meet with specialists of my field.’
