At the crossroads of the Provence Verte, arts and nature combine… The contemporary arts centre of Châteauvert invites us to stroll and daydream among its temporary exhibitions and the sculptures populating its garden. To the rhythm of the Argens, a river sometimes peaceful, sometimes whimsical, the arts centre thrills contemporary creation in a spirit of discovery and sharing. The projects are sprouting up with the residencies of artists who create on-site works, in harmony with the garden environment.

The contemporary art centrer of Châteauvert is a public cultural estblishment of agglomération Provence Verte.

Regain

A bubble of time that seems suspended outside a contemporary world that never seems to stop accelerating, the residencies are privileged moments of exchange and work for the artists, the art centre team and the people we meet during the residencies.

Regain has been conceived both in terms of the changes taking place in our society and as an echo of the work developed by the three guest artists. Although Côme di Meglio, Eve Pietruschi and Javiera Tejerina-Risso come from different backgrounds, what they have in common is that they produce works whose imaginary plasticity takes account of the fact that we cannot escape both the climate crisis and the changes inherent in modernity and technology, sometimes proposing solutions that, however utopian they may be, could be applied to improve our lives together.
