September at the Camargo

This September, MAABN Partner the Camargo Foundation once again is providing an eclectic and fascinating mix of events and exhibitions by artists from France and other countries around the world.

The Calanques Follow-Up

Ryo Abe, SEED, Port-Miou (Cassis), 2018

In January 2018, the Calanques National Park, the OSU Pythéas Institute (Aix-Marseille University, CNRS, IRD) and the Camargo Foundation—together with landscape architect Gilles Clément—invited eight international artists to reflect upon the human/nature relationship within the context of the only urban national park in Europe, the Calanques National Park. During five weeks, eight unique visions were inspired by exchanges with the territory and those that live and work within it: researchers, park officers, and the inhabitants of the area. Following on from these first ideas, some have been continued, such as with Ryo Abe and Nicolas Floc’h.

This summer 2018, Japanese architect Ryo Abe worked on the first step of his project Approaches, which intends to lead to the creation of a research-oriented and community-based experimental garden in the Calanque of Port-Miou (Cassis). Until mid-November 2018, the entrance of the Park in Port-Miou will host SEED, a temporary installation to present some initial ideas.

During a follow-up residency in Marseille and Cassis, French artist Nicolas Floc’h is continuing his ongoing research and photographic work on the underwater landscapes of the Calanques National Park to show these “invisible” territories that the Park needs to protect.
