Eclats du passé, les mille et une vies des objets

Aix-en-Provence - Archéologie - From 18/10/2021 to 08/01/2022, every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10 am and 6 pm. - Free

Chaque année, le territoire d’Aix-en-Provence est l’objet de fouilles archéologiques à l’occasion desquelles sont exhumés de nombreux objets, souvent dégradés par le temps.

Pour rendre perceptible ce qu’elles nous racontent des savoirs techniques anciens, de la valeur esthétique, culturelle ou sacrée qui leur était conférée, ou, plus simplement, des usages et pratiques des sociétés qui nous ont précédés et dont nous sommes collectivement les héritiers.

Cette manifestation est aussi l’occasion de découvrir les savoir-faire des restaurateurs d’art, qui agissent tout à la fois comme des révélateurs et des médiateurs, dans le plus strict respect de l’intégrité physique, esthétique et historique des œuvres qui leur sont confiées.

Elle a fait l’objet d’un partenariat entre la Direction Archéologie, l’Association Provence Archéologie et les ateliers de restauration qui ont travaillé sur les collections aixoises, durant ces quinze dernières d’années. Il s’agit de la société Acorros, spécialisée dans la restauration des objets métalliques et en céramique, du laboratoire ArcNucleart-CEA de Grenoble, spécialisé dans la restauration des bois gorgés d’eau, de l’atelier de restauration de mosaïques attaché au musée archéologique de Saint-Romain-en-Gal, des sociétés Ipso Facto, La Pierre au Carré, Corear, Denis Delpalillo (restauration des pièces lapidaires), et de la SARL Emmanuel Desroches (four de verrier).
