"LIVING ROOMS
Friendliness, ecology and life practices"


13 mai -30 septembre 2012

Le Domaine de Chamarande fait « Salons » autour de nouveaux dispositifs de convivialité, imaginés par des artistes et des architectes. Outre une réflexion sur les enjeux sociaux et globaux, ce nouveau salon se rapproprie une intelligence et une curiosité de son milieu. Il redevient un lieu d’échange d’acteurs désireux de bâtir ensemble une nouvelle culture du « local ». Plus que jamais, faire salon est une méthode. Inspirée de la culture du développement durable et de son approche co-créative, la consultation des parties en amont des décisions mise sur la complémentarité des acteurs au sein des projets. L’écosystème complet du Domaine devient ainsi l’enjeu même de l’exposition.

vegetal Arrangement, Castle of Clisson

gilles Bruni and Arnaud de la Cotte, with Jean-Louis Vincendeau (EDITIONS Joca Seria - 2015)


"Vegetal
Arrangement " is an artistic experience led by Gilles Bruni accompanied with Arnaud de la Cotte as part of artists' residence in the Castle of Clisson from March, 2012 till October, 2013. During two years, by the enchantment of Arrangement, the castle filled up with seagoing characters between invention and reality, the gardener, the artist, the visitor, followed by the small underground crowd of the plants which live in the place. To the rhythm of seasons, 14 stations fanned out in areas divided by the ruins to offer a parallel history.
In the course of dialogue, they wonder about their report in the place, in the visitor and in the plant. In the course of pictures they rebuild the space of Arrangement, weave sometimes fine links with an intimate story of art and practice of Gilles Bruni. Jean-Louis Vincendeau, historian of art and of gardens, carries a poetic look on the whole plant Arrangement.

"ECOPLASTIES. ART and ENVIRONMENT"

NATHALIE BLANC and JULIE RAMOS (EDITIONS MANUELLA)


At a time when environment is in the middle of public concerns, "Écoplasties" introduces a panorama of protocols, problems and answers which artists of the whole world develop, each in their way, to consider environment in another way.

Work shows the diversity of steps and of question settings, both as regards the transformations of artistic practices, in proposals and productions, and the new reports in the environment which they implicate.

Artists' about twenty discuss so with the authors to explain their link specific for the question of environment.

These discussions are preceded of a broad introduction which, by offering a bet in historical perspective, allows to take all measure of this environmental art, its mutations and of its development of the beginning of this century in today.

Discussions with Ala Plastica, Van Lieshout workshop, Iain Baxter and, Gilles Bruni, Caretto e Spagna, Minerva Cuevas, Georg Dietzler, Mark Dion, Olafur Eliasson, Peter Fend, Peter Goin, Hans Haacke, Janet Laurence, Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison, Heather and Ivan Morison, Platform, Alexis Rockman, Ann Rosenthal, Stefan Shankland, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Herman de Vries

Worldwatchers 3 (BLACK JACK EDITIONS)

À l’heure des interrogations sur le réchauffement climatique et des risques environnementaux qui en découlent, les artistes, parmi lesquels Art Orienté Objet, Amy Balkin, Gilles Bruni, Seamus Farrell, Romain Pellas et Akira Sunrise, proposent une réflexion qui prend pour point d’ancrage le territoire bucolique de la vallée du Lot. Comment en est-on arrivé là ? Telle est la question qui se pose quand on compare cet environnement vierge de toute urbanisation à l’état des friches industrielles et des villes polluées. Dans cet ouvrage, on retrouvera des illustrations présentant les travaux exposés lors de cette manifestation. Celles-ci sont accompagnées de textes, parfois écrits par les artistes eux-mêmes, expliquant les démarches artistiques. Enfin, il s’agit d’un hommage au Land Art dont les œuvres d’art « géoplasticiennes » font du spectateur un acteur à part entière de la création. Et ainsi, selon Hicham-Stéphane Afeissa, « l’œuvre d’art peut bien être en attente de ceux qui sauront en recevoir la lumière. Elle peut bien être en état de veille, en situation de vigile, montant la garde à l’avant-garde. Veilleuse du monde. »
