THE RED PARTRIDGE BY ADÈLE RENAULT

THE RED PARTRIDGE BY ADÈLE RENAULT

Within the framework of the Itinéraires Artistiques en Pays Portes de Gascogne, with the financial support of the State and the Occitanie Region.

In May 2022, Adele Renault was invited to create a fresco of the Murs d’Audubon in the heart of the village of Sempesserre, in the Gers. The inauguration of the fresco was accompanied by a convivial program, in partnership with La Tchourre, representative of the LPO in the Gers, which is associated with the project, particularly in its scientific mediation.

THE RED PARTRIDGE AND THE COMMUNE OF SEMPESSERRE

The bird proposed by the commune is the red partridge. This bird is now threatened. The municipality of Sempesserre is committed to a policy of environmental preservation, which includes the replanting of hedges in its municipality. The objective is to promote conservation and in particular to restore habitats for the red-legged partridge.

The inhabitants and the elected officials of the town of Sempesserre were also associated with the project of the Walls of Audubon within the framework of the Artistic Itineraries of the Country Portes de Gascogne.

ACTIVITIES AND MEDIATION

The pupils of the elementary school, as well as the inhabitants of the village, were invited to participate in workcamps and were thus made aware of the issues related to environmental protection.

The Gers association La Tchourre, representative of the LPO in the Gers, is associated with the project and has set up an exhibition and a bird-watching tour:

– Exhibition “Acting together for birds of prey by nature in Occitania”: a flight into the fascinating world of birds of prey in the region, so that everyone can act for their knowledge and their preservation. From May 11 to 24.
– Presentation of the artist Adèle Renault and aperitif. May 17.
– Bird walk. May 20.
– Aperitif and Spanish inn in front of the fresco. May 20.

ARTISTIC ITINERARIES IN THE PORTES DE GASCOGNE REGION

The Pays Portes de Gascogne and its 160 communes spread over 5 communities of communes covers a third of the Gers department in its eastern part, in the Occitanie region. It is a territory close to the agglomerations of Toulouse, Auch and Agen. Usually identified for its gastronomy and its gentle way of life, the Pays Portes de Gascogne is also a territory of cultural experimentation.

There are about twenty works divided into two circuits: Art and Environment, and Frescoes. Each work has been the subject of an artist’s residency combining creation and cultural actions towards the inhabitants. Each of the works is linked by a circuit that can be done by electric bicycle, using among others the project Vélo de Pays du Pays Portes de Gascogne.
