Métropole Rouen Normandie is teaming up with ONF to host the Forêt Monumentale exhibition. This event is a two-year art exhibition that takes the form of a trail of monumental artworks, to be created in the Roumare Forest.
This unique trail of several kilometres offers visitors an opportunity to visit this remarkable natural habitat, or to see it from a different angle. It invites them to explore a stretch of woodland dotted with pieces created by plastic artists, landscapers, artists, designers and architects who have plunged themselves into these green lungs to experiment with new art forms.
The second Forêt Monumentale exhibition will open in June 2024 in the Roumare forest in Canteleu, near Rouen. It will end in 2026.
This call for creations will select a total of 9 artworks for installation in the forest along a 4-kilometre trail at various sites. A first phase will see around 20 candidates selected for a grant of 2000 EUR to elaborate their proposals. The final 9 projects will then be chosen to each receive 25,000 EUR to produce and then install their artwork between November 2023 – June 2024.
This call for creations is open to professionals and students of all creative disciplines: French and international artists, designers, architects, landscapers, performers, plastic artists, graphic designers, etc. Participants may be individuals or groups.
