Herbarium Memoriae
curated by Chantal Colleu-Dumond
Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire, France
31 March – 4 November 2018

Chaumont-sur-Loire celebrates its “10 years of art” with a series of installations in which the artists are naturally invited to confront the estate. More than 15 commissions and exhibitions highlight this particular year of the Center of Art and Nature of Chaumont-sur-Loire, including the personal “Herbarium Memoriae” of the couple Anne and Patrick Poirier, always inspired by the plants and their way of recording the time. Their archaeological experiments and their techniques, playing with the camera obscura and putting together a jumble of objects collected in their wanderings, combine to form almost pictorial works where petals, pistils and other botanical parts are juxtaposed or layered one on top of the other.
