Painter, researcher and educator, Anais Bloch’s work involves observing humans and non-humans to question possible social futures in uncertain situations. Trained as designer and anthropologist, she explores how to enrich qualitative methodologies with visual materials that sometimes lie between reality and fiction. To do so she experiments her own observation methods in order to report the different realities in the fields of study which she has the opportunity to work with.
For This house is not a home she wishes to consider the practice of drawing or painting as a way of being connected and as a mode of understanding, documenting, inhabiting and sharing a space. Drawing could be a pretext to exchange and discuss, and at the same time enable documentation. Her painting at the gallery displays a social scene of being together, which will serve as a starting point for her intervention.
