SETH - 2019
« Breathe » - Seth
Leaning on his beige cloth, the child contemplates a springtime and abundant flora. Through this artwork, "Breathe", Seth questions our relationship with Nature, this original myth. The child's presence suggests cultivating an innocent and benevolent look at our nature and the child that slumbers in each of us.
The Bernard de Jussieu district, which emerged from the ground in the 1960s, has had its housing estate renovated by a group orchestrated by Eiffage Construction (Ithaques, Vincent Lavergne Architecture & Urbanisme and BETOM Ingénierie), in collaboration with the landlord Versailles Habitat and the city of Versailles. This thermal rehabilitation programme's aim is to improve the daily life of its inhabitants.
Associated with this renovation, Quai 36 signs the artistic direction of project #1096 (in reference to the 1096 housings). Nine French and international mural artists invest the facade of a building, i.e. nine 150 m² monumental frescoes revealed to the eyes of the residents over a period of one year.
Paying tribute to French botanist Bernard de Jussieu, the artists Aryz (Spain), Eron (Italy), Jade Rivera (Peru), Mona Caron (Switzerland), Pastel (Argentina), Sainer (Poland), Seth (France), Telmo Miel (Netherlands), and Waone (Ukraine) have been questioned about the relationship between humans and nature.
