About the Artists

Born in 1997, Timothée Lambert began his artistic studies in the preparatory class of ENSBA Lyon before joining the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. Having studied photography and stage design, he went back to his childhood obsession: drawings, stories, and lettering. His current works are inspired by diaries and impulsive ideas, with which he seeks to become comfortable in order to create intimacy with the reader. Timothée recently took part in the group exhibition Would Do Again and a film evening showcasing resident filmmakers.

Libéral Martin lives and works in Paris. In 2014, he started studying animation at ENSAD. He directed his two first short films combining music and animation, Destinations and Querelles de clochers, in 2015 and 2016. This experimentation lead to other multimedia productions such as Willem Van Haecht and VERTE OFF in 2016 and Fake 48-6 in 2017. His research on synesthesia is outlined in his dissertation “Du mouvement musicale à l’image”, in which he presents a variety of connections between music and images in film and animation. In 2018, he joined the community of resident artists at the Fondation des États-Unis. In June 2020, he completed his latest short animation film The Mecanorgans, which was released in 2020. Liberal recently took part in the group exhibition Would Do Again and a film evening showcasing resident filmmakers.

Anahita Navaei was born in February 1995 in Paris. She is a filmmaker and visual artist, passionate about images and synesthesia. Having completed a degree in Law and the History of Cinema at the Sorbonne, she went on to study writing and directing at the University of Corsica. She directed her first film, Iran è man, produced by the G.R.E.C (Groupe de Recherches et d’Essais Cinématographiques), in partnership with the Centre Méditerranéen de la Photographie. In 2020, she completed her Masters in Creation at University Paris 8-Saint-Denis. Her second film, Nahid and Sepideh, a fiction set in France and Iran was released at the Festival des 168 Heures. In December 2021, Villa Ndar, the French Institute of Saint Louis in Senegal, offered Anahita a residency to rewrite and develop her latest animated film project, Soum, an animated tale made of fabrics and spices, which takes place in the city of Saint-Louis. She received the “Sortie d’école” grant from the CNC for the project. Anahita Navaei has been an artist-in-residence at the Fondation des Etats-Unis since November 2020, where she works in her 5th floor artist studio. Anahita recently took part in the group exhibition Would Do Again and a film evening showcasing resident filmmakers.

Rose Vidal, born in Paris, is a French artist as well as an art critic. She is a student at l’Ecole des arts décoratifs in Paris, and contributes to AOC media’s publication on contemporary art, literature, and
cinema. Currently in artistic residency at the Fondation des Etats-Unis, she lives and works in Paris.
