Artistic interventions for the greening of Strasbourg’s urban space
VITAL is the transformation of public space through the intervention of artists and citizens. The aim is to re-enchant the city through the use of living plants and recycled or reclaimed materials.
Within the framework of this programme, Apollonia presents three operations
1 – The Vital project – June 2022 / December 2023
The Vital project highlights four innovative installations placed in the public space and calling for citizen participation. These works are environmentally friendly, concerned with climate degradation and use renewable energy.
Artists: Klitsa ANTONIOU, Marco BAROTTI, Thibault HONORE, Irena PIVKA, Brane ZORMAN
2 – The exhibition (Co)Habiter – 24 July 2022 / 9 October 2022
“In our often accelerated, saturated and ultra-connected daily lives, do we still experience the living? Do we still pay attention to the other species that inhabit and make the earth habitable? Through the title (Co)habiter, the ambition of this exhibition is to think about the different ways of co-inhabiting and co-existing with the living in an ecologically and socially damaged world.”
Artists: Clothilde GARNIER, Lama el CHARIF, Juliette DIGNAT, Sibylle de la GIRAUDIERE, Mélodie GOGUE-MEUNIER, Zoé KINER-WOLFF, Alexis PUGET
Curators: Elisa OSTERTAG, Léna URBANY
3 – The Plant Tag – 25 July 2022 / 15 October 2022
Young people from the Cité de l’Ill in association with artists from the exhibition (Co)habiter will invest the walls of their neighbourhoods in order to create a mural fresco made of living plant foam.
