Entitled Pittoresque, the work created for the park by Dimitri Xenakis and Maro Avrabou relies on the very definition of this word which appeared in Italy in 1708: Pittoresco derived from Pittore, the Painter. A series of framed paintings will show the Castle through out-of-scale pictures of flowers. This installation, unusual at first glance, is mainly a tribute to the site and to the loving relations maintained by painting, the park and nature.
Dimitri XENAKIS and Maro AVRABOU
Born in Athens in 1960, Maro Avrabou is a plastic artist and light designer. She works in the visual arts field and in theatre, dance and opera.
Born in Levallois-Perret in 1964, the plastic artist Dimitri Xenakis works in and with the landscape, constantly renewing his artistic language to communicate with the environment.
Both are working on jointly-signed works that question areas of life, points of view, shapes and light. They are working on all projects to do with the natural and urban landscape, endeavouring to create a link between what exists and artistic intervention.
