Vivacité represents the effort to bring art into the urban space. The art works involved try to reinvent the city through the dynamic of creation starting from nature.

These art installations, performances, projections, graffiti etc have been chosen after an appeal to artists, architects, landscape painters and botanists. Their job was to take back our neighborhood by proposing new city set ups and urban dispositions.

Vivacité glorifies the living but it also represents the union between nature and the key elements that men use to display, like the shed represents architecture.

Some of the chosen art works denounce the abuse towards plant life, for example through cotton cultivation which exploits child labour for profit.

Nonetheless, complex connections are born between the natural universe and new technologies through many sensors, micro-controllers, video projections and sound emissions. Many of these works have been set in common spaces, not only for decor but so that the citizens can take care of them.

Apollonia venue & garden are open:
Wednesday to Friday: 11 am – 6 pm
Saturday & Sunday: 2 – 6 pm
Free admission

In partnership with L’Escale, Emmaüs Scherwiller, KS groupe, ADIR and BNP Paribas.
