Projet #1096

Versailles 2019

"The Monument" - Eron

In this fresco, "Le Monument", Eron conjures the complexity of our relationship with nature up. Depicted as tamed but also wild and free, this work bings up the question of the interdependence of our relationship.

The artist had realized his fresco in 6 days, using only spray paint.

The Bernard de Jussieu neighborhood, constructed in the 1960s, has had its housing estate renovated by a group orchestrated by Eiffage Construction (Ithaques, Vincent Lavergne Architecture & Urbanism and BETOM Ingénierie), in collaboration with the landlord Versailles Habitat and the City of Versailles. The thermal rehabilitation programme's aim is to improve the daily lives of the inhabitants.

Associated with this renovation, Quai 36 signs the artistic direction of project #1096 (in reference to the 1096 housings). Ten French and international mural artists invest the facade of a building, i.e. ten monumental frescoes each measuring about 200 m² revealed to the eyes of the residents over a period of one year.

In tribute to the French botanist Bernard de Jussieu, the artists Aryz (Spain), Eron (Italy), Jade Rivera (Peru), Mantra (France), Mona Caron (Switzerland), Saddo (Romania), Sainer (Poland), Seth (France), Telmo Miel (Netherlands), and Waone (Ukraine) are questioned about the relationship between humans and nature.

In order to visit the Bernard de Jussieu district, take the Transilien L, direction of "Versailles Rive Droite" from St-Lazare station and stop at "Gare de Montreuil".

By car, take the A13 highway then the D182 departmental road, direction "Avenue des Etats Unis" in Versailles. The addresses of all the frescoes are available in the photo gallery below and in our dedicated Qlub 36 article.
