Suite aux présentations orales sur l'art éphémère, les élèves de Terminales Euro ont rédigé des articles pour partager leurs découvertes, sur cet art particulier.
En voici quelques uns:
Ephemeral art exhibition in Charles Tellier High School
by Théo WERTH, Monday 1st April 2019, for Tellier Times.
During the last two weeks, Charles Tellier’s students have presented to their class an artist or a form of ephemeral art that they have choosen.
Performance art, land art, sand art, stone balancing, fruit and ice carving, make up, body painting, graffities,… they presented almost all the forms of ephemeral art. Indeed, their Euro English teacher Miss Labiche proposed to them to create a patchwork of words and images that was their medium to speak about their topic for about five minutes.
During their presentation, they defined precisely the form of art that they’ve choosen, and/or presented an artist. Then, they presented a selection of exemples of artworks, and they explained their particularities (message conveyed, aesthetic elements, style, technique used,…). To finish, they shared their opinion, and they used very relevant arguments… and thanks to them, my mind changed on some ideas that I had (before) on ephemeral art.
For example, Sven, changed my opinion about tattoos : before, I didn’t know if this form of art was ephemeral… and it is ! Indeed, he said that tattoo isn’t ephemeral, at first sight, but, when we’re thinking about it, as he said, « the tattoo dies with us », and it’s true : when we die, the tattoo disappears… that’s why tattoo is a form of ephemeral art.
In addition, the students presented also some artists, like Lorene Bihorel (sand artist), Robert Smithson (land artist),… But the artist taht caught my attention was David Best, an American sculptor who builds giant wood structures… and after, he burns them. I totally disagree with his methods, because today, there are too much environmental problems/issues.
The last thing that I will add is that it was a really interesting exhibition, with motivated students. During it, I discovered new forms of (ephemeral) art, and new artists. I also discovered that everybody can make art.

L'Europe: qu'en savez-vous?
Dans le cadre du concours "L'Europe: qu'en savez-vous?" organisé par le rectorat de Rouen, les élèves de 1Euro ont créé de toutes pièces ce reportage qui fait la chasse aux fausses informations concernant l'Union Européenne.
Nous vous communiquons ici le document qui a été envoyé aux membres du jury, qui nous ont sélectionnés pour la finale qui aura lieu à Rouen le 9 mai 2019, jour de la Fête de l'Europe!

Voici la critique d'une de nos élèves de 2nde euro qui vous présente sa vision du documentaire Wasteland, visionné par tous les élèves de 2nde au cinéma Le Royal la semaine dernière.
Waste Land was written and realised by Lucy WALKER, Joao JARDIM, and Karen HARLEY. It's a documentary released in 2010.
All along the film, we follow Vik MUNIZ, a Brazilian artist living in the USA. Vik decides to go to Rio,in the tallest wastelandfill of the world : Gramacho. He meets several sorters of the wastelandfill, especially the president of the sorter's association, Sebastiao.Vik understood in which living conditions they are. He took pictures of those with whom he had a lot of exchanges. Then, he made works-of-art using waste from the wastelandfill, and at the end of 2 years, he went to London with Sebastiao. They went over there for sell Sebastiao’s picture, created by Vik and the sorters. They got a lot of money and the sorters shared the money. Thanks to Vik, all of the sorters are not working at the landfill any more and they have a better job and a better life.
I really loved this film because we saw the reality of the life, and there is a life lesson. We see the reality as it is. Also, I love the film because the characters (sorters) are endearing and touching.
My conclusion will be that even if at the beginning the sorters seem happy, they are not happy for real. In my opinion, all of the world should do effort to reduce our waste . The earth must not become a big waste land !
