Tracing a pedestrian route in the heart of the young district of Les Vergers, 16 works by international artists open a space for discussion on art and nature in the city.
Spread out between the Lac des Vernes and the Ferme de Vergers, they are presented in the form of instructions that question, by including the public in a creative process, the emotional relationship to natural elements, the vocabulary used to name them, and the attention we pay to the other, non-human creatures that share the urban space.
Copies of the artists' instructions, in A3 format, are offered free of charge to visitors at the Auberge des Vergers, which is presenting two complementary audiovisual installations for the occasion and will host, in its cultural room, participatory conferences with local actors and scientific experts, documentary screenings and workshops based on the artists' instructions on three thematic Saturdays. The works presented in the neighbourhood and at the Auberge are part of an international exhibition that tours from city to city. After starting in Berlin, then stopping off in Geneva, the (re)connecting.earth project is now settling in Meyrin and can be seen until 10 October 2021.
