Étoiles distantes, route of exhibitions and events designed and initiated by the Frac des Pays de le Loire with the complicity of partners in the Region.
With its new Nantes site, the FRAC continues its essential missions of clearing up artistic scenes, supporting creation and building up a network of territories. To inaugurate this place, the Frac is setting up a new project around emergence.
The Pays de la Loire region trains and attracts many artists every year. It is by relying on a generation who graduated between 2013 and 2018, some of whom trained in fine arts schools in the region, others located in the region and attentive to its dynamism, that this exhibition project is being built. For an extended resonance, we nevertheless wanted to open this project to a national stage, to allow for the setting up of cross-dynamics, wider visibilities of the project, and thus to stimulate a network of artists who radiate and can embody a generation without specific anchoring.
This project is set up this year with the collaboration for the pre-selection of files, of two teachers from the École des beaux-arts de Nantes Saint-Nazaire (Michel Aubry, artist and Marion Daniel, art critic), two teachers from TALM Angers (Vanessa Theodoropoulou, art critic and Jacqui Riva, artist), Franck Balland (curator and independent art critic), and for the Frac, Laurence Gateau, Director and Vanina Andréani responsible of the Collection-Exhibition Pole. Romain Bobichon, Kim Farkas, Camille Juthier, Aurélie Ferruel and Florentine Guédon & Camille Dumond were thus selected by the jury for the Frac exhibition in Nantes with an echo in Carquefou. Flora Bouteille is invited in this context to perform a scheduled performance at the Lieu Unique.
