Résidence "Rendez-nous la beauté" - Bernard Garo

Within the framework of the exhibition All against the Earth, the artist ensures an artistic residency on different themes around the climate change.

Philippe Wagneur

As a visual artist, painter and photographer, Bernard Garo takes a committed look at the world around him by integrating natural materials in his paintings.

Within the framework of the exhibition All Against the Earth (tout contre la Terre), the artist will hold an artistic residency on the following themes: climate change, planetary limits and the emotions that resonate within each person.

This residency is nourished by the artist's exchanges with scientists from the Museum of Natural History, notably geologists. Throughout the residency, the public will be able to follow the evolution of his work, which will culminate in a final installation exhibited until June 25, 2023.

In this temporary studio located within the exhibition all against the Earth, videos will document the performances carried out in parallel by the artist on top of glaciers. Ephemeral installations will punctuate this residency in perpetual motion.
