4th Sept 2017:
An artistic and poetic trail in the city
is not a city like any you probably visited: so many things to
do, to discover. One of the most amazing/original features in
Nantes is: "Le Voyage à Nantes". Travelling to Nantes.
It's all about "Following
the Green Line".
No, nothing nasty like the Film, let me reassure you! It's all
about letting yourself drift from a work signed by a today’s
great artist to a remarkable element of Nantes' heritage, from
classic sites to unknown treasures, from a historic alleyway to
a contemporary piece of architecture, from a surprising vista
onto the city to a sunset on the Loire estuary…
Jean Blaise as its director, its mission is to promote
the cultural project established by Nantes, and more generally
by the destination of Nantes Métropole.
To this end, and what makes this structure exemplary, is the
yearly event it organizes every summer highlighting this
cultural project via an urban itinerary, where city spaces are
filled with both temporary and permanent artworks.
Fifty two stops. 52 places, art pieces to discover and expore.
from the 1.
Lieu Unique (first
edition of the Nantes Open's venue) to the last one,
52. Mose Attacks, Opération Neptune (in reference to
that episode that took place the night before D-Day, when
American paratrooper John Steele got his parachute caught on a
church spire in the Norman town of Sainte-Mère-Église.)
The Green Line is 13km long and according to François Lejort,
tournament promoter/director, "en vélo, c'est super!", "it's
great with a bike!"....
