La Colombière, a venue for creation and artist residencies in Chênehutte-Trèves-Cunault, will be welcoming the public on 19 & 20 September 2015 for the European Heritage Days, to give you a chance to admire the work of Maryline Tagliabue, who is currently in residency there.
A landscape engineering graduate from the Blois National School for Nature and Landscape, Maryline Tagliabue works independently and takes part in a variety of projects spanning the arts and landscape.
During her residency, she has developed a sensitive landscape approach using tools and methods from the worlds of art and design:
- mapping as a means of randomly exploring the area, and then of representing an experience,
- sculpture and volume for working the materials found on-site.
As such, in the form of prints, she fixes and gives shape to all sorts of landscape facets – its uses, past and present traces and its founding elements such as stone, water, gardens and vines (which is the definition of the Loire Valley's cultural landscapes given by Louis-Marie Coyaud).
Saturday 19 September from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday 20 September from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Fondation Marquise de Narros-Institut de France, Mission Val de Loire and the village of Chênehutte-Trèves-Cunault would like to breathe new life into La Colombière, and have therefore decided to devote future residencies to the landscape theme. The Tourisme & Culture association, in liaison with the various partners, is playing an active part in the centre's opening and outreach.
La Colombière was bequeathed to the Fondation Marquise de Narros-Institut de France, which now owns it. This house was where the sculptor Gustave Pimienta lived and worked for thirty or so years until 1982.
Danièle Sallenave, from the Académie française, who wrote the "Dictionnaire amoureux de la Loire" and is attached to history and beauty of the site, is curator of the Fondation Marquise de Narros-Institut de France, the site owner. She chairs the jury which selects the resident artists.
