from July 13 to August 11, 2019
at the Pavillon du Jardin des Plantes, Rouen
The Centre photographique Rouen Normandie leads a generous and ambitious program of artistic and cultural education. Around the vast theme of the territory and our modes of interaction with the landscape, both rural and urban, and with the support of schemes set up by the Normandy Region, the Direction régionale des Affaires Culturelles and the City of Rouen, the Photographic Center articulates residencies and artistic workshops, particularly in schools.
L’École buissonnière is a collective exhibition presented at the pavilion of the Jardin des Plantes in Rouen this summer, in resonance with the exhibition Notre Jardin (Centre photographique). It retraces the artists’ residencies of Marion Dutoit, Delphine Burtin and Diana Scherer in schools. Conducted in the region during 2019 in agricultural high schools*, horticultural high schools** or around an urban square and gathering a kindergarten, a primary school, a middle school and a retirement home**, these artistic residencies all three deal with the territory and our way of living in it.
The exhibition has received the support of Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council and the Société des amis du Centre photographique.
