Laure Subreville - Durousseau Cutting Tools

Residence from November 5, 2018 to March 31, 2019 - Durousseau (Cenon, 33)

It is through the articulation of the interests shared between the Durousseau Outils Coupants company , its employees and the artist Laure Subreville that Zébra3 designed this residency project with the help of the DRAC Nouvelle-Aquitaine. It opens up the opportunity for Laure Subreville to develop a project based on the specific human context of the company. This artistic and experimental approach initiates a new relationship between the company's teams and their own work tool and reciprocally brings to the artist a body of elements able to integrate his creative processes.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Located in Cenon, the Durousseau Outils Coupants company has specialized since 1935 in the sharpening and sale of professional tools and woodworking machines. More than a workshop, the place is a real crossroads of information, placed under the sign of exchange and conviviality. It is the image of the work that his team has been carrying out for several years: seeking to create networks between the various suppliers and customers.

This family company is going through a special moment in its history, the choice of the SCOP structure was chosen for its transmission and all the staff will soon become members of the company and collectively lead to the destiny of their work tool. It is from this human context that Laure Subreville, a young video artist imagines the creation of a work involving all of the company's 10 employees.

From the first meeting of the company with the artist Laure Subreville, a fertile human context emerged, prefiguring an environment favorable to the installation and the creation of artistic forms. For this company, the opportunity to be able to offer an artist a new research context is also that of creating a specific artistic object born out of mutual artist / company curiosity. It could also become, through its form (video), a singular trace in its individual and collective history.


This meeting between Durousseau Outils Coupants and Laure Subreville, beyond the question of the production of a work, is the opportunity to initiate a dialogue between the artist and the employees of the company, and in the same spirit initiate knowledge sharing. This residency proposal is based above all on reciprocity, a time of exchange of several months during which the employees of the company will have the opportunity to discover contemporary creation, and the artist will be able to base his project on a daily presence with seasoned professionals.

This residency will give rise to several restitution times throughout 2019. Within the company, then during the inauguration of La Fabrique Pola in Bordeaux.

This project receives the support of the program "Artist residences in companies: program 2018 - 2019" of the Ministry of Culture - DRAC Nouvelle-Aquitaine, and of the EBABX.
