The association “Visual Art” is proposing Saturday a contest of experimental art and artistic performances in the Jardin des Arts in Vernon.

The artist Sandrine Goupil , initiator of the project defines this contest as “an experimental invitation to a dream and a trip to the imaginary in music with the plastic arts. Invitation that has already seduced 38 artists who will be present Saturday at the Garden of Arts:

“The performer has the opportunity to register for one, two or three sessions, details Sandrine Goupil, and last-minute registrations are possible. The competition is open to professionals, knowledgeable amateurs and young artists (16 – 25 years old) divided by category.”

All techniques and tools are allowed, only the size of the canvas is imposed (100 cm x 80 or 100 cm x 100). To give free rein to their imagination, they will be accompanied on each session by a band of music: “Vaguement la jungle” which will make performers and spectators travel from east to west, the group “Kat” will propose an experimental improvisation between Tunisia and Australia and the Givernois of ”  You Said Strange  “.

“Plastic arts, music, and performers will merge and the viewer will be invited to share a moment of pure experimental creation between musicians and visual artists” summarizes the artist giving advice to future performers: “The purpose of this experiment is not not to produce a decorative work but to share the creation. So, let go! “
