An exhibition by French artist
16th April – 13th May 2015
Over the past decade, for artistic or professional purposes, French artist Yohann Walter has been travelling from the Ionian Islands to the Hordaland coasts, the foot of Vitosha Mountain to the Catskills, the Laurentides to the Landes forest, Louisiana to the mouth of the Daugava, the Appalachian Mountains to the western province of Connacht. Paddling. Walking. Sailing. Driving. Flying.
Beyond it, this relationship to geographic distances, human discoveries and cultural novelties has been a constant driving force to Yohann’s artistic activity.
Every new landscape, colour and sound turning to the stage for new sensitive works and visual tales.
ODYSSÉE is a collection of art pieces conceived and realized while travelling, exploring cultural and linguistic juxtapositions, folding and unfolding space and time.
It is an invitation to travel which offers visitors to embark on a dreamlike wandering, questioning our sense of geographic belonging through mixed media works and unique looks.
Admission free, all welcome!
