Habitats sauvages, Léna Durr

Through her intimate and tender portraits of people living in wildlife habitats, Léna Durr reveals lifestyles resistant to the standards imposed, in unstable territories where the notions of happiness, richness and free time are questioned.

From my window, Rudy Ayoun

In 2021, the painter Rudy Ayoun did a two-week residency at the art center and at the Maison d'Enfants L'Essor in Châteauvert. It was during this period that he created his first landscapes which are exhibited here as part of the second edition of the Bienvenue au jardin festival.

The questions of narration, construction and fragmentation of the narrative are central to the paintings of Rudy Ayoun. They are also accompanied by a reflection on the painted space. Places and objects become increasingly important in his paintings, as the representation of the human figure becomes rarer. This absence thus draws a narrative in hollow, a game of clues and questions delivered to the spectator.
