Alexandra Catiere was the artist chosen for the first BMW Residency at the Musée Nicéphore Niépce in Chalon-sur-Saone, France. Through the fall 2011 she pursued a personal project drawing on the city, people and objects; not restricting herself to a particular subject, genre or technique, but letting herself be guided by the moment and its illuminating encounters.

The exhibition in Arles, in 2012 and the book published by Trocadero was the result of this residency.
