  • Esther Ferrer (1937, San Sebastián) est une artiste plasticienne et performeuse espagnole.
    Elle rejoint en 1967 le groupe Zaj (1964 - 1996), composé de Walter Marchetti et Juan Hidalgo. Actif jusqu'à la moitié des années 1970, le collectif est à l'origine de nombreux concerts, actions, publications et installations. Ce mouvement, très proche de Fluxus, fonde son art sur des gestes minimalistes, des objets ordinaires et est tributaire de l'influence de John Cage et de Marcel Duchamp.
    À partir des années 1970, elle travaille aussi avec la photographie, le dessin et réalise des toiles à partir de travaux antérieurs, assurant une continuité entre les performances et son travail plastique.
    Dans ses installations ainsi que dans ses actions, elle place des objets ordinaires dans l'espace pour créer des situations absurdes.
    Esther Ferrer a été lauréate du prix d'Honneur AWARE en 2017.

    • 12 June 2007

    Gobelets, stylos, feutres, ballons, pailles, tubes et boîtes de pellicule photo... tout est bon pour réaliser des jouets sonores ou de petits instruments. Avec ces matériaux rudimentaires, les enfants apprennent à recréer l'ambiance sonore du bord de mer, de la ferme, de la ville et d'autres univers dont seul Serge Durin détenait les clés.
    Dans les mains des enfants et de leurs parents, grâce à ce livre, un gobelet chante comme une poule ou un crapaud, un feutre imite la mouette ou le rossignol, un tube devient flûte harmonique ou clarinette. Plus de quatre-vingts sonorités - instruments, chants ou cris d'animaux - dorment entre les pages... il ne tient qu'à vous de les réveiller !
    Facteur d'instruments à Clermont-Ferrand, Serge Durin a repris et rénové la tradition des anciens facteurs de cornemuses du Bourbonnais, sa région d'origine.
