ART INVITES ITSELF TO MOSNY CASTLE
Pierre-Jean Chabert's impressive resin hippopotamus head.
Over the course of a weekend in early June, Mosny's garden and castle were transformed into a gigantic art gallery. At the invitation of Martine Le Gall, owner of the castle, some fifteen local artists had taken over the flowered paths of the park and the ground floor of the castle. Throughout the tour of the park organised by the owner, the public was able to appreciate the resin or bronze sculptures of the animal portraitist Pierre-Jean Chabert, the aerial weather vanes of Gérard Morisset, the germinated seeds of Michèle Miniere or discover the unique creations coming straight from nature, where branches and trunks find all their place, of Edy Boucher, cabinetmaker and furniture designer.
Inside, as you walked through the rooms, you could discover the ceramist Sylvain Fezzoli who works with glazed stoneware and Limoges porcelain to create a whole range of tableware, the unique pieces combining the hardness of black stoneware with the soft and light colours of the porcelain of the ceramist Carole Boissiere or more original creations based on wild animal bones by Martine Dubois. Visitors could also take part in workshops such as the painting demonstration by Grégory Cortecero, the carving on siporex by Lyd Violleau or the Chinese massages by Bernadette Lassus.
