Off-site residency from September 20 to October 1st, 2021 at Foyer de vie Les Buissons, Rosans (Hautes-Alpes) as part of the "Rouvrir le monde" program.

Born in 1991. Lives and works in Marseille (FR).

During his residency, Basile Ghosn will carry out workshops using existing images taken from the Foyer de vie’s library, drawings and textual and iconographic content based on the architectural and landscaped specificities of the environment.

This residency will be the occasion to transmit and create through an economy of means. It will also be the place for sharing and thinking about what surrounds people who live in the Foyer d’hébergement Les Buissons, in relation to their various interests. The publication project will be made possible thanks to a mode of expression both manual and completely free in its form. The restitution will be opened to the public at the end of Ghosn residency.
