Le Jardin

The garden is an orchard that wel­comes new works every year. Located in Saint-André-d’Embrun, with a breath­taking view of Lake Serre-Ponçon, it is open to the public throughout the year depending on the events ini­ti­ated by its owners, Sylvie Saint-Maxent and Dominique Blanc, and/or by Les Capucins.

The works pre­sented were all pro­duced for exhi­bi­tions pro­posed by the con­tem­po­rary art centre. Too imposing to be recu­per­ated by the artists, they have been given a new lease of life by this new exhi­bi­tion format. Sometimes this dis­place­ment incites the visual artists to com­pletely rethink the ini­tial work for a totally dif­ferent ver­sion, in-situ this time; fol­lowing the example of Kristina Solomoukha and Paolo Codeluppi who con­ceived an orig­inal piece Le pont from the bam­boos used for the exhi­bi­tion Parade du OUI et du NON & cinéma en pièces détachées.

For the past two years, the garden has brought together works by Roxane Borujerdi, Cécile Bouffard, Angélique Buisson, Ernesto Sartori, Kristina Solomoukha & Paolo Codeluppi and Céline Vaché-Olivieri.
