Sa 10.08 from 11:00 to 13:00. Join Maëva Longvert for a storytelling and collage workshop as part of the Un été sous les Marronniers programme, organised in partnership with the City of Nyon.

This proposal is part of the Family, Relax and Festive routes.

Through her huge birds, fabulous and fearsome crows, visual artist Maëva Longvert questions the territory, the public domain, and our relationship with storytelling. Her installations combine real and fictional stories. They celebrate and bring to life our stories of flight, like those of our sisters, mothers, and grandmothers. Inspired by the book Living as a Bird by philosopher Vinciane Despret, EN VOL follows the artist’s desire to explore different ways of being in the world and learning from other species. If we are willing to listen carefully, the birds speak to us of collective strategies, sensitive intelligence, protection, evading traps, joy, playing, and escaping. EN VOL is a marvellous way of sublimating our failures and our dreams by giving them a place at the heart of the city.
