Jumièges, à ciel ouvert – Jumièges (France)

Jumièges, open to the sky – modern art installations in the grounds of Jumièges Abbey
Is forcing over a thousand-year-old masterpieces such as Jumièges Abbey and its grounds to enter into dialogue with contemporary art a seemingly impossible venture? It is indeed quite amusing to see precisely how the six invited artists have interpreted the “portrait of the abbey’s life”. The six installations combine to form a trail, comprised of different steps towards a production that reactivates heritage, an open-air theatre through which the visitor meanders, occasionally spurred into interacting with the work, coerced into taking a closer – then a more distant look, into walking all round it, and even more.
