Combining art and ecological concern, Victoria Arney’s work naturally found its place at the Maison du Parc and the Musée des Alpilles, two places favouring an approach and a sensitive discovery of the territory of the Alpilles. Under the canopy, the monumental work of Victoria Arney makes the melodious song of the Philomenal Nightingale ripple in space, whose complex trills reason day and night. The long rolls of paper move with the slightest breath of air. They evoke the grace, even fragility, of the moment. In the historic rooms of the Bastide Saint-Rémoise, the visitor is invited to wander through the choirs that punctuate the Mediterranean dawn, to discern the birds whose songs the artist carefully engraves in the wood and to discover the work of the students of the school of the Republic in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, whose introduction to the riches of avifaune intersects with the production of an artistic installation.

Tradition and modernity combined in an equipment at the service of all, this is the spirit in which this project was conceived.
