The Creative Map // La Carte Créative

Marie_cici-ok-new-1432670389

 

 

In a fun and original way, a person or duo guides us through their city, sharing insider tips, great addresses and favourite spots. 

In the shape of a poster, The Creative Map, at the same time a tourist and artistic map, introduces us to a city, its inhabitants, artists and a multitude of addresses.  The first issue is Brussels! The Creative Map is an artistic and graphic object, an original project stemming from the encounter between a photographer, Cici Olsson, and a singer, Marie Warnant, both living in Brussels,  who, for this first issue, wanted to shine the light on their city.   In the guise of an LP - 33 rpm vinyl record - poster, the Creative Map contains over 80 useful tips, 60 places to discover, a 2 hour musical playlist, 50 photos and a spirited layout that will appeal to people enamored with the city, tourist and residents alike. Useful and fun, this artistic object is by essence multi functional.  Bonus : 2 original songs by "Girls just wanna have fun". 

 

The Creative Map Contains :

 

1) A plastic album pocket cover

2) A sticker with the summary of the contents

3) A poster/map printed recto-verso, with the map and addresses on one side and the photos on the the other. 

4) A carton incorporating the list of all places, addresses and useful information.   

 

+ a bonus of two exclusive songs.  

 

The Brussels Creative Map will be officially launched, with a showcase and release party, at the Hôtel du Berger, on September 10, 2015

Marie Warnant

 

After a first album in 2005 "De un à Dix" widely praised by the press and the listeners, Marie Warnant, author-compositor,  released "Ritournelle" in 2010 and "Nyxtape" in 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 2015, she released "Make Love", an EP (limited edition vinyl) containing 4 variations of the same song.

An extract from the "NYXTAPE" album, the song Make Love was remixed by DJ Dim le Brun and TITLE

 

 

 

 

In collaboration with hat maker Elvis Pompilio, Cici Olsson shot and conceived the cover of the EP Make Love by Marie Warnant.

On stage, Marie Warnant wields an electric guitar, a sampler and a keyboard, and she fiddles with green fluorescent audio tapes. Elegantly she has demonstrated her talent and originality, both solo and in band.

In 2014, at a St. Vincent concert at the AB she runs into Cici Olsson and asks her to shoot the press photos for her NYXTAPE album. A beautiful friendship and artistic complicity was immediately established.

Directed by Cédric Havenith, Cici made an appearance in the music video "EXIT", the second single from NYXTAPE.

 

 

 

Following a noteworthy happening at the Berger Hotel in November 2014, Marie Warnant invents the "Make Love Tour" to promote the EP Make Love. Accompanied by Cici, who documented the tour in photos and videos, she played for 24 hours non-stop in 16 legendary places in the Belgian capital. An around the clock performance that served the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" as a takeoff point for the Creative Map concept, a convenient and fun guide to cruise Brussels via its most alluring addresses.
