Graduate in hydrology, she wanted to gain a new experience in a field that would be miles away from what she knew so far. She is looking forward to witnessing the life cycle of an exhibition from set-up to tear-down, discovering new artists or learning how to garden.
Student at Sciences Po, Lucie is a nomad. She navigates on sight, meets strangers, friends, sources of inspiration and takes notes on the world surrounding her in her many notebooks.
She chose to make a stopover at Apollonia to keep seeking how art can be an informal educational bias. This can be translated by mediation actions or the use of the garden as a mean of expression. For her, creation is the synonymous of sensitivity and universality.
Student in visual and fine arts, they are used to analyse the form and substance of artworks and discuss art philosophy. Sensitive to nature and its protection, the garden let them improve their knowledge on botanic, for now beginner in this domaine. The opportunity to be here also gives them a lot of inspiration for their personal artwork !
