On 4 May 2019, the first edition of the triennial “Gigantic” was launched in Dunkirk. Questioning the relationship between Art and Industry, the exhibition takes visitors to different essential places in Dunkirk, like a walk through the heart of an industrial port area.
Among the 200 works of extraordinary dimensions that are presented, the one created in situ by artists Nathalie Brevet and Hugues Rochette. For the building of this monumental fountain, Marfret, through its Dunkirk branch, donated two 40-foot and four 20-foot containers, cut and assembled on Pier 1, near the sugar market, facing the citadel district.
An event not to be missed, from May 4, 2019 to January 5, 2020
