Garden of arts
Châteaubourg, from 1 July to 1 November 2020
Once again, this year, Ar Milin park, a stunning green oasis from the 1950s, is being turned into an open-air gallery with around 20 striking sculptures. Wavy or rigid, organic or abstract, but always monumental and original, the works brought together in the gardens trigger a surprising dialogue between nature and culture. Five artists, five universes, five virtuous ways of handling material, movement, balance, etc. Observe the astonishing “stable imbalance” created by the giant pick-up sticks by Simon Anglade or the destructured volumes of Félix Valdelièvre. Under the fingers of Christian Hirlay, steel is twisted, hammered, polished, oxidised, etc. Can you hear the impetuous gallop of his foals, inebriated with freedom? Will you be touched by the mysterious poetry emanating from the spiral of 1,000 metal poppies deployed by Francis Bernica, or the “cocoon boats” by Odile de Frayssinet, the magician of weaving? A trail of surprises for anyone curious and for dreamers, to discover day or night!
