Camille Dumond: Eye archive

Hundreds of independent art and museums spaces were forced to close due to the Corona-Crisis. In this series we are celebrating the fantastic artistic events that are right now sitting behind closed doors. Camille Dumond seeks the blind spot of translation and confronts the question of the author, the gesture of translation, and their consequences beyond language in her exhibition Eye archive at Le Cube, Rabat.

Eye archive introduces the outcome of research led by Camille Dumond about translation and transcription in Tangier and in Rabat, in the form of a video projection and an installation. During her residency at Le Cube, she took as a starting point a collection of stories from 1979, entitled « Five eyes », gathering eleven tales narrated in Darija dialect by five Moroccan authors, painters, storytellers, to their American interlocutor. But these were only translated in english.
