by Nils Udo
At the invitation of the town of Cannes, renowned German artist Nils-Udo, pioneer of Land Art, will create several ephemeral installations this summer on Ile Sainte- Marguerite, the largest of the Lerins Islands, an exceptionally preserved natural site at the heart of the French Riviera.
The event will be immortalised through a collection of original photographs that will complete the monographic exhibition dedicated to the links between Nils-Udo, the Mediterranean and the islands.
Through his installations on water, mossy wooden rafts, fleeting installations of turf, flowers and bamboo on the infinite scope of the Mediterranean, the visitor will be taken to Italy and the Spanish islands in order to look with fresh eyes upon the beauty, but also the fragility, of these sites.
This exhibition, curated by Frederique Citera-Bulot, director of the Musees de Cannes, will take place in the spectacular location of the Musee de la Mer, in the Fort Royal de lIle Saint-Marguerite rooms dedicated to contemporary photography.
