Rendezvous on 20 November at 18:30 at the Pôle 109 with three exhibitions featuring video: 'Saga' at the Station, 'Implano de Arisana' in the Grande Halle and an exhibition in progress at the Forum d'Urbanisme et d'Architecture de la vile de Nice.
Focus on the Station - Pôle 109
Saga' is a TV-like series produced on the model of the exquisite corpse: each episode is directed by a different guest artist(s) who can read the scripts of the previous episodes but cannot view the images. The means of production and locations change with each episode, only the actors remain the same. Project by Rafaela Lopez, Baptiste Masson and David Perreard.
Focus on the Grande Halle - Pôle 109
Implano de Arisana
The course of the Paillon River naturally leads to the northern district of the Ariane in Nice. The artist Halida Boughriet was invited to reside there to produce a work based on her encounter with this territory. She set up a protocol combining staging and documentary immersion, accompanied in her discovery of the area by local associations and through the eyes of six women.
Commissariat Mathilde Roman.

Stranger than Paradise
Borrowing its title from Jim Jarmush's film 'Stranger Than Paradise', the exhibition invites visitors to stroll through Château Sainte Hélène, an old house surrounded by a large park with rare species. The artists Raffael Bader, Alexandre Capan, Elspeth Diederix, Anne Hujnen, Thom van Rijckevorsel, Irene Suosalo, Christian Viallard and Isabelle Wenzel are invited to interact with the polymorphic notion of Naive Art.

Focus on Roseland Abbey - Pays Sages Foundation
A digital installation projected on absyde inside the crypt of Roseland Abbey immerses the visitor in an experience between nature and culture. This installation is accompanied by original electro-acoustic music by Michel Redolfi. The four-handed work questions the place of nature in the age of the artificial. The Abbey is the headquarters of the Pays Sages Foundation dedicated to the protection of landscapes and founded by Michel Péna, landscape architect, creator of the Promenade du Paillon.
