Arweider at La Grande Place

A encounter between two artists and the region’s crystal and glassworkers

Anne Deprez and Julie Luzoir spent ten months collecting the stories and memories of artisan crystal and glassworkers – the men and women adept with cutting wheels, hand ladles or blowing irons – for the group exhibition Arweider, devised with the Frac Lorraine (the regional fund for contemporary art).

Dora García at La Verrière

Somewhere, Two Planets Have Been Colliding for Thousands of Years (The Thinker as Poet)

At the core of a minimalist installation at La Verrière, something is taking place. Visitors become the spectators of a performance that invests the gallery space. Dora García’s elegant, rigorous presentation seeks to generate a poetry accessible to all.
