Station Flottante – Round Table “listening to the living”.

Station Flottante – Round Table “listening to the living”.

At the heart of the issues that link artistic creation and sustainable development, the Station Flottante proposes to examine, from July 15 to 19, the impact of cultural projects on their environment.

At the frontier of the artistic, technical and scientific worlds, the public is invited to attend round-table discussions, workshops for young audiences or to visit a video exhibition. Turned around the questions of ecology, energy autonomy and circular economy, these days are placed under the sign of the interactions between the disciplines, the practices and especially the coalition between artistic practices and environment.

COAL is invited to one of these Round Tables on July 15 from 7 to 8 pmFlavie L.T (artist), Sami Trabelsi (architect), Ouazzani Carrier (artists), Vincent Voillat (artist), Lauranne Germond (curator, COAL), Camille de Tolédo (writer – audio capsule from Berlin) to discuss the theme “Listening to life. Artistic creation & sustainable development”. The debate will be moderated by Anne-Cécile de Vellis and Arnaud Idelon.

In parallel, each of the speakers had the opportunity to submit a video that will allow the public to analyze these links between art and ecology. COAL is pleased to present a filmed work by Eléonore Saintagnan (special mention of the COAL 2020 Prize jury) & Grégoire Motte from 2015, Les Bêtes Sauvages. This set of videos will be presented during the 5 days on board the Floating Station.

At the end of these days and of these different activities, the Floating Station is transformed in the evening into a friendly place for concerts, projections, DJ sets and refreshments.

More information on the program of the Sation Flottante until July 19th
