l’Art au Carré

35 artists occupy an old barrack

from january 18th till february 24th 2013

Le pavillon Desgrées du Lou - Nantes (44)

“Le Pavillon Desgrées du Lou waits for its metamorphosis. This old barracks, a closed and austere place, is going to become a place of life and conviviality. This change begins the exhibition. Who better than the artists can build this footbridge?

Make a dialogue between the past and the future, breathe new energies, wake up the walls…
I gave carte blanche to Albane’s gallery to prepare an invasion of art in “Le Carré Vert” and give to it a new breath. The artists will have about 3000m2 to customise with their imagination. Is it a funny idea from business manager whom I am?

It would be quicker to realize the construction project without this artistic episode, but, definitively, I believe in the virtues of the mutual inspiration! ”

” I could do everything i wanted in this room dedicated to a future demolition. I had pleasure to sculpture it that it becomes the prefect nest for my white chrysalises. ”
