EXHIBITION JULY 2021 In July, four visual artists give free rein to their imaginations and take over the rooms on the first floor. Installed by Flora GUETON, Laurence FONT, Marie DESCHAMPS and Christophe DESRAYAUX their work will undoubtedly move you.
Four visual artists take over the walls of the Maison du Patrimoine. Martha ARANGO experiments with sculpture using various natural and recycled materials, mainly paper and cardboard, highlighting old techniques. She brings to the surface her favorite themes: nature, the environment and human consciousness.
Eric BAVOILLOT : "At the heart of the act of creation there is access to an inexhaustible source of energy, to universal information without limit of time, form, or space, to a consciousness that knows us and loves us as a mother. »
Marc ESPINASSE : The techniques I use are the recycling of outdated objects, the diversion of obsolete utensils, the heterogeneous assembly and the work of scrap metal: cutting, grinding, sanding, welding, stripping, scraping, nailing, when we love there for all ages.
Lowhen HEINKE : Lowhen's eye lands on what we don't want to see, on what we abandon and leave on the way, immortalized in a slow poetry of pictorial shaping of unusual places and death. She prefers, with the greatest sensitivity, to express herself on materials recovered and themselves doomed to a very presaged end.
