Naïm Aït-Sidhoum is an architect by training, graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Grenoble.

In 2007 he founded the Zoom collective, a platform for experimental propositions that are in-between the field of art and the field of urban planning.
The collective develops temporary structures, interfaces of collaborative mapping and performative forms. In 2008 he founded the Pied La Biche collective engaging again in questions around the concept of territory, but mainly through the video medium.

Through the presentation of a current project of producing a television series in the area of Villeneuve in Grenoble (a “grand ensemble” emblematic of late modernity) he will discuss the form of “shooting” video/ film as a way to perform architecture.

“Refait” is a remake of the football match between France and Germany (Seville, Spain, World Cup 1982).
Shot by Pied La Biche in Villeurbanne (France), every aspect of the last fifteen minutes of the match was carefully reconstructed: players, positions, gestures, intensity, drama etc. Each sequence was filmed in one or several locations, the city temporarily becomes the lab for unusual experiments.
