Résonances

An echo at the Site Transitoire

Jean-Paul Philippe

La Roque d'Anthéron, Bouches-du-Rhône, France

Résonances – A sculptural link to the “Site Transitoire” in the Adrechs park.

When the French town of La Roque d’Anthéron twinned with the Italian Asciano, a desire to permanently highlight this new cultural link lead to the idea of a site-specific sculpture project created by artist Jean-Paul Philippe echoing his other site-specific sculpture work “Site Transitoire”, situated in Italy. Jean-Paul Philippe’s future sculpture project entitled “Résonances” will also highlight the special relationship of La Roque d’Anthéron’s town council with the ITER program.

The site-specific sculpture “Résonances” will be installed in the Adrechs Park, which is located near the road that goes from Berre-l’Etang to Saint-Paul-lez-Durance.  This road section serves as transport from Marseille/Fos port of international wide loads from 35 partner countries intended for the machinery of ITER

Located at the entrance to the town, coming from Avignon, the site-specific monument by Jean-Paul Philippe will be built at the other end of the town in dialogue with the Abbey of Silvacane, an exceptional architectural heritage, a true testimony of the art of sculpture in Art History. The monument will be easy to access, that will favor walk and meetings.
