The work of Camille Dumond combines interdisciplinary proposals, and creates escape scenarios for given frames. She seeks to reverse genres, subjects, speeches through installations, short films, and sculptures. Her research concerns various topics, such as public space, storytelling, recovery process materials, feminine cinema casts. Her short films alter original given facts (story, History), and often setting the quest of outcasts.
