Description
"La forêt monumentale" is planned between September 2019 and September 2021. It is a sustainable Fun and Monumental Art exhibition which is original due to the creation or the adaptation of temporary artwork specifically for this project.
Managed by Métropole Rouen Normandie in collaboration with the ONF, the call for applications covers the creation of 8 to 12 works of art located at the centre of the Green Forest.
This event is primarily a regional project which is sustainable and brings together a large number of local authorities and local tourism or cultural players.
"Le forêt monumentale" is a national and international artistic event aimed at everyone, whether art enthusiasts or not. The artworks will be installed in areas encouraging promotion of the surrounding natural scenery.
In the form of a Monumental Art Triennial, the project proposes the creation of a route to discover 8 to 12 monumental artworks in the Green Forest. This unique route will allow visitors to independently discover or rediscover our forests through art and fun.
The essence of the event is based around 2 aspects that the artists must consider when creating their artwork and promote in their application:
- The monumental aspect of the artwork:
The artwork must have monumental dimensions, without precise constraints; they must significantly impact the site where they are located.
- The fun aspect of the artwork:
The artworks must be fun so as many people as possible can enjoy them and they create a buzz
