'Squeaky Beach' by Collective Disgrace (Ilana Winderickx, Sophie Conus, Pablo Rezzonico Bongcam) at Indiana, Vevey



"Squeaky Beach" is the name of a beach located on the southern tip of Australia, famous for attracting many children to play among the large, bluntly shaped rocks that lie along it. Its name refers to the squeaking sound that the sand makes when walking on it, a sound that English speakers sometimes refer to as “barking sand”. The beach is part of a nature reserve, and a great place to collect the debris that the ocean leaves behind along the coast. 

The memory of this shoreline, thought of as an archetype, is the starting point of the exhibition. Spontaneously, it has become a pretext for trying to rediscover the ability to create from the slightest trace, both a proof and a reason for the existence of other realities, invisible and fantastic. 

The objects call upon these universes. They have been jointly brought here, mixed, sometimes fantasized. Considering the impossible return to an idealized past, the pieces of the collection that "Squeaky Beach" is, have been the tools of a reflection, both personal and shared, on the images remaining from the time of childhood, as well as a more general state of collective nostalgia of enchantment, the feeling of going too fast and of losing one's memories little by little.
