"Hic and nunc", an exhibition in MoulinSart

 

The art center in île MoulinSart offered the visitors to take part in an artistic project with the artist Porte Renaud.

From 9th March to 24th April, Porte Renaud intervened in different cultural and social places in Val de Sarthe, under the form of productive exchanges and spontaneous workshops. Porte Renaud's work is based on protocols and uses methods and gestures taken from sculpture and archaeology history. By accumulating fragments, whether moulded or modelled, the artist creates installations, excavating beyond the surface of reality. Its practice is often based on the visitors' participation, before and during the exhibition.

The exhibition "Hic and nunc", resulting from the residence and exchanges with the public, is presented at the art center in Fillé-sur-Sarthe from 25th April to 14th June. The artist found inspiration in the emotion he felt when he visited the Gourdon Caves in the Tarn département. The artworks exhibited in Fillé are reminiscent of the concretions of the underground world.

 

Practical information. The exhibition can be seen until 14th June at the art center in île MoulinSart. In May, from Wednesday to Sunday from 2 to 6pm. In June, from Wednesday to Friday from 2 to 6pm. During weekends and bank holidays from 10am to 1pm and from 2 to 6pm.

Porte Renaud was greatly inspired by the mineral world.

After Puls'Art event near Fillé's mill

At MoulinSart, in Fillé-sur-Sarthe, contemporary art has a great and sustainable position.

Here in MoulinSart, where you can find the mill and the abandoned buildings the communauté de communes (community of communes) of Val de Sarthe restored, contemporary art has a great position.

  The art center was built in 2007 and welcomes temporary exhibitions and creations made in situ, under the form of artists' residence. The visual artist Sophie Papiau is working with young people and is one of the five artists invited to the residence this year.

  After receiving the surprising pictures taken by Franck Pourcel during the Photographiques festival, the art center is once again engaged in an artistic event created somewhere else. Puls'Art, a contemporary art event organized in Le Mans from 23rd April to 8th June (Cité des arts from 14th to 17th May), occupies an annex in Fillé where you can see creations and performances realized live during the weekend from 6th to 7th June. "An After Puls'Art event inviting no less than twenty artists working on graffiti, street art and other artistic disciplines", says Philippe Bergues, vice-president in charge of culture.

 

  Moreover, the art center is used to receiving three students from the Fine arts school from Le Mans, Angers, Tours. For now, Renaud Porte, aka porte renaud, a 27-year old sculptor living in Berlin, is invited to the center.

 

  The young visual artist creates sculptures by using plaster, salt and pigments he knows well about. He has an original and playful approach because he invites the visitors to take away some artwork fragments they will have broken according to the size of the carrying box. Renaud's exhibition can be seen until 14th June.

An artist halts at the library

 

During his journey in the communauté de communes (community of communes) of Val de Sarthe, the visual artist Porte Renaud halts at the Louplance library.

 

Enjoying the wonderful weather of the day, Porte Renaud established his temporary workshop outside, thus enabling him to meet many children and parents. First, visitors were surprised and then they became curious about the workshop. Some of them decided to have a one-on-one with the artist to produce an artwork following the advice he gave them. Between 12 and 15 people had the opportunity to try this one-on-one. The artist was attentive and patient with his "trainees", happily giving them advice. Porte Renaud said he was satisfied with the relation they established during the exchange.

During the holidays, the library is open according to the following schedules: from 10 to 12am on Saturday 18th April, Wednesday 22nd April and Saturday 25th April. In May, it will be closed on 2nd, 9th and 16th May.

La Suze-sur-Sarthe

 

A participative artwork with Porte Renaud

 

This artist will reside for two months at the art center in île MoulinSart. Porte Renaud, the order of his name is inverted, offers his visitors to make an interactive creation with him.

 

After going to Roëzé, he has been invited to La Suze and its library for one day. The place was turned into a workshop. A table... and condoms used as moulds to sculpt a collective artwork.

Let's explain to curious people who don't know what it's all about. Porte Renaud encourages people to become sculptor for some moments. He likes using plaster. In turn, visitors let their imagination run wild but quickly, the plaster doesn't wait...

Porte Renaud fills the condom with the white material, closes it tightly and gives it to the visitor. For the public, it's a real experience, almost sensual. But also funny. Like a dream. They let their hands guided them toward a spontaneous shape they hadn't planned before it became definitely solidified, kept in the condom. It's a part of the artwork. Porte Renaud offers the visitor to ask a question in a guestbook. A question the next visitor has to answer before asking his/her question, and so on.

 

Sculptures for a collective and ephemeral artwork.

"In Roëzé, about twenty people produced as many sculptures this way", explains Porte Renaud. With the five communes inviting him, there will be many more... A hundred, maybe many more.

Porte Renaud will lock up this "accumulation of shapes" in a box he will create according to the size he wants to contain all the artworks.

"Species preservations", "a monument to the glory of oblivion", he says. Because this work will be ephemeral, or almost.

"On 24th April, at 6:30pm, during my exhibition's vernissage at the MoulinSart art center, "Species preservations" will be broken and every participant will be allowed to take away a fragment. They all will have their unique artwork, in a certain way."

 

To participate

For those who want to take part in this collective sculpture, other dates are planned with Porte Renaud at the libraries. On 1st April, from 10 to12am and from 3 to 7pm in Spay. On 8th April, from 4 to 6:30pm in Louplance. On 15th April, from 10 to 12:30am and from 2 to 6pm in Étival.

Open to all.

Roëzé-sur-Sarthe

A visual artist halts at the library

 

An unordinary visual artist intervened at the Roëzé library. "My name is Renaud Porte but, as I am a visual artist, I change the plasticity of my name, which is turned into porte renaud". The artist lives in Berlin and is in a residence in MoulinSart (Fillé) to prepare an exhibition that will be held from 25th April to 14th June.

"I follow a participative protocol. Today it's the species' preservation. A person creates a shape with plaster and answers a question asked by the previous visitor. All the fragments will be gathered and transformed into another artwork. Afterwards, they will be poured into a huge plaster block and will result in a monument to the glory of oblivion. The block will be broken and the visitors will be allowed to take away the fragments."

Two adults and nine children came in the morning at the library to participate in the creation of the fragments.

The artist also works with modelling clay that he creates, salt dough, trilobite fossil shapes and face fragments. He will perform in La Suze, Spay, Louplande, Étival-lès-le-Mans. More information at: 02-43-57-05-10.

porte renaud, a residence of participative creation

 

The success of the Inside Out project, created by the artist JR and organized in 2014 in our area (exhibition of 100 portraits of the art center visitors in different Val de Sarthe towns) encouraged a renewal of the participative project in 2015.

 

This year, the île MoulinSart art center offers the visitors to take part in an artistic creation led by the artist porte renaud. Porte Renaud uses methods and gestures taken from sculpture and archaeology's history to create his installations. By accumulating fragments, whether moulded or modelled, the artist creates installations, excavating beyond the surface of reality. Its practice is often based on the visitors' participation, before and during the exhibition.

 

From 13th March to 24th April 2015, porte renaud will perform in various cultural and social places in Val de Sarthe, under the form of productive exchanges and spontaneous workshops. He aims at meeting the public and gathering all the creations during a future exhibition in île MoulinSart art center.

 

For a walk-workshop, please register!

In the context of this participative residence, porte renaud gives you the opportunity to create art during a weekend, from 28th to 29th March 2015. After a walk looking for abandoned vestiges, the artist will organize a workshop to restore the collected fragments to create an artwork entitled "Survivances".

 

Open to all. Free admission. Limited places. More information to register at: 02 43 57 05 10
