Jardin des 5 sens et des formes premières

Saint Marc Jaumegarde - Cultural place

Jardin contemporain de 2 hectares 50 situé à la sortie d'Aix-en-Provence en direction de Vauvenargues. Le Ministère de la Culture a attribué à ce lieu le label de " Jardin remarquable ". Des espaces y sont spécifiquement créés pour solliciter les cinq sens des visiteurs. L'association et la présence forte et bien intégrée des formes premières y invitent à une approche symbolique de cet espace bucolique où s'est instauré un dialogue entre nature et culture.

Dans un cadre de garrigue méditerranéenne ont été ménagés des espaces où la végétation et l'eau sollicitent les sens ainsi le boudoir des senteurs éveille t-il l'odorat. Etroitement imbriquées, les formes premières complètent la symbolique du lieu. Le parcours propose en outre aux visiteurs la découverte d'oeuvres d'art, pérennes pour certaines, mais aussi des créations d'un artiste invité pour la période estivale.
