La Grande Lessive ®

Aix-en-Provence - Divers arts - Sunday 28 March, every Thursday. Date to be confirmed. - Free

En reprenant le principe des grandes lessives d'autrefois qui réunissaient les habitants d'un même lieu, la plasticienne Joëlle Gonthier a créé, en 2006, une installation artistique éphémère "La Grande lessive ®". Elle en a fait la plus importante manifestation d'art participatif au monde : à ce jour, la Grande lessive ® a rassemblé 10 millions de participants dans plus de 114 pays sur les 5 continents.

De quoi s'agit-il ? Ce jour-là, chaque participant est invité à réaliser un travail artistique sur un support en format A4 (dessin, peinture, image numérique, collage, photo...) sur le thème donné, et à l'accrocher à des fils tendus, à l'aide de pinces à linge en bois. Pour contribuer à cette action, nul n'est besoin d'être spécialiste. Seul importe le désir de partager une même invitation, le même jour.

Les lieux d'étendage. Tous les parvis des mairies de quartier de la ville proposent des ateliers. Mais aussi :
▶ Fondation Vasarely
▶ EPHAD Bastide du Figuier
▶ Place Maurel – Saint-Eutrope
▶ Bastide Granet
▶ Square Lagier (Les Milles)
▶ Centre Albert Camus (Corsy)
▶ Parvis du Lycée Cézanne
▶ Square Candilis (Pont de Beraud)
▶ Resto du Coeur (Encagnane)
▶ La Laverie Solidaire (Encagnane)
▶ La Cité du Livre.

Les personnes intéressées peuvent participer à cet événement en se rapprochant d'une de ces structures ou en venant, le jour J, accrocher leur production artistique dans un des lieux cités ci-dessus.
