Call for Proposal Carte blanche for an exhibition in Bordeaux

Média-Cité contacted our collective Lab212 to be part of the festival PanOrama, and more specifically the Nuit Verte (Green Night), happening in a park near Bordeaux. The goal of this festival was to highlight the many parks on the east shore of the Garonne river. The Nuit Verte was a special event happening on one night, in the parc de l’Hermitage. It was an art event, where dozens of performances, projections and interactive art works were programmed.

The possibility to work on an interactive installation for a park, at night, was exciting. It brought back childhood memories. Deer bellow in autumn, stories told at night in the middle of the woods, like the legend of Thibaud “the Cheater”, who was damned after chopping a priest’s head, to chase a dear he could never catch…

I decided to use this opportunity to bring people away from the main paths of the park.
