With the ongoing pandemic, Marfret has continued more than ever its promotion of culture and its support for artists. The company recently paid for a container to be modified and put at the disposal of artist Guillaume Marmin, who has completely restyled the interior. His work, entitled “Passengers”, takes visitors on a journey of discovery of the different facets of their image, reflected in kaleidoscopic mirrors. The images reflected are intensified by the lighting. This, to say the least, unique installation has already been exhibited in the Rhône-Alpes Region at the Hôpital Nord-Ouest at Villefranche and has been at the Vasarely Foundation in Aix-en-Provence since 14th January. The work has been awarded the Vasarely Foundation – Biennale Chroniques International Award for “contemporary kinetic art création récompensée par la remise du prix international de la Fondation Vasarely – Biennale Chroniques « Pour l’art cinétique aujourd’hui ».
Another exhibition well worth seeing is Nicolas Floc’h’s “Paysages Productifs”, which has been extended until the end of April 2012 at the FRAC Provence-Alpes Côte d’Azur. Through his underwater photographs in black and white, the artist draws us into the submerged realm of landscapes, with an original take on the deep which borders on the abstract.
