The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is pleased to welcome Jérémie Gindre as part of the Spoke Worlds program, conceived in collaboration with Fabienne Radi and Emmanuelle Pireyre, both authors and teachers in charge of the two writing workshops run at the HEAD – Geneva. The Spoken Worlds series of events invite you to immerse yourself in the plural practices of reading. These evenings hope to develop, thanks to a community of voices, invigorating paths of reflection.
Jérémie Gindre proposes a reading and presentation of his book Tombola, a collection of 7 short stories set in the mountains, on a megalithic site, in a Buddhist temple, along an estuary and at the Niagara Falls. In these stories, the sun rises, sets, there’s wind, showers, fog, old snow and rainbows. We meet sea mammals, what we think are marmots and lots of birds.
Jérémie Gindre (b. 1978) is a Swiss artist and writer living in Geneva. To date, he has published some fifteen books in a variety of forms – novel, short story, non-fiction, picture book, comic strip, photo-novel, hiking guide – and staged numerous exhibitions bringing together drawings, objects and texts. His fiction often recounts interesting discoveries, remarkable landscapes and peculiar behaviors.
