Tales from the Library Lormont - France

Exhibition, October 2016, in the Bois Fleuri Cultural Centre, Lormont, France.

For a decade, the Château du Bois Fleuri – an old public library – has stood empty: waiting for ‘a saviour’. For the moment, it is fenced off and not open to the public.
Sophie Poirier and I were invited by the Bois Fleuri Cultural Centre to explore the site. We put forward an idea for an artistic installation, Tales from the Library, which would combine our experiences.
