ESQUISSE PRÉPARATOIRE POUR LE HANGAR DE LA MOUTURE, DESSIN NUMÉRIQUE, 2021
Especially for the festival, the Hangar de la Mouture in the Pesquiers salt marsh turns into a dream where models follow the outlines of one of Alexandre Benjamin Navet’s sketchbooks.
This artist and designer transforms places into an imaginary, colourful and bright palace, entirely created on site.
“I wanted to create a dream villa, between a paper castle and a theatre set where flowers would come to bloom. A place where the vivid colours and puzzling perspectives surprise the audience and play with the different possibilities. The places’ perspectives and scale act as a great playground; it’s such a pleasure to see the designers’ creations coming to life in this parallel world filled with arches and secret passageways!”
