The Friche de l’Escalette located at the edge of the Parc des Calanques offers visitors the remains of its remarkable industrial heritage, punctuated by light architectures by Jean Prouvé and modern sculptures. Four contemporary artists are taking over the place this year. Héloise Bariol ceramicist evolving between Land art and architecture. The facetious artist/designerYonel Lebovici († 1998) transforms Prouvé’s Cameroon Bungalow into Fisherman’s Bungalow. Gérard Traquandi revisits the Baroque with his reliefs and ceramic jars. Adrien Vescovi thinks big with his huge theatrical hangings.

Objets à réaction poétique

Gathered around the theme “Objets à réaction poétique”, four contemporary artists are taking over the premises this year. Marjolaine Dégremont with her “Cabanes perchées”; the duo of sculptors/ceramists Baptiste & Jaïna with their “Formes molles” et their “Tabourets assise tracteur”; the enormous “Bête endormie” in cut cardboard by Lilian Daubisse found refuge in Jean Prouvé’s Pavillon 6x9 when Guy Baref installed his two “Tours des vents” in Jean Prouvé Bungalow du Cameroun and unrolled his relief of bricks from the 1960s on the ground.
