Who hasn’t answered the question “What would you take with you to a desert island?” in order to imagine the essentials, the things that would enable us to rebuild a new world? So let’s go back to basics, and make do with what’s at hand, experiment with vernacular practices, work with materials that are already there, test new ways of creating, acting and interacting… These are the intentions of the ten artists invited to make the island of Nancy their playground.
Invited because of their knowledge of materials, their craft skills and their ability to generate common ground, the artists taking part in the 26th edition of Sculpture en île are creating with Andrésy’s resources, whether natural or reclaimed.
The eleven works scattered along the water and the forest trail blend with eleven observation points of biological, geological and ecosystem features, creating a dynamic dialogue between works of culture and nature.
Sobriety, inventiveness, attention to the environment, sharing knowledge and know-how with the public… This new edition of Sculpture en l’île is experimenting with a new collective narrative, and promoting a culture of change that is joyful and generous!
