From the Island to the World

Group exhibition of the research and creations by the residencies since 2012.


Exploring and examining a territory, and more particularly an artificial island, what does it mean?

For seven years artists, researchers, writers, architects and landscape architects have followed on from each other as residents in Vassivière Castle, projecting their wishes and aspirations through the landscape of the island. They have posed pertinent questions about the place, the inhabitants and the Art Centre, with each residential season revealing a little bit more about the unique identity of the Plateau Millevaches. The summer exhibition allows us to revisit the accounts of these explorations and researches that have, from an island, radically transformed our view of the world.
