Following the exhibition, “Isthme” resonates with the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Lyon and proposed in 2015 at the Atelier Chroma, SILLON is an artistic and cultural event, engaging new forms of relationship to the territory, the person and the artistic works. It aims to activate dopenings that create synergies which seem increasingly essential to the sharing of knowledge and the awakening of curiosities. Heritage sites hosting the works of contemporary artists, local agricultural dynamics, practices related to the envyronment and the well-being of the person form a route of twenty places, passable on foot and in soft mobility.
A route of forty kilometers spread over 6 municipalities of the Drôme: Saoû, Francillon sur Roubion, Mornans, Poet-Célard, Félines sur Rimandoule and Soyans.
14 venues in 6 municipalities host the exhibitions.
With the artists: Charlie Boisson, Claude Caillol, Nicolas Chatelain, Flavie Cournil, Gabrielle Conilh de Beyssac – Jules Guissart, Vanessa Fanuele, Vincent Gallais, Philippe Guerin, François Henninger, Frédéric Houvert, Don Hazlitt, Ann Veronica Janssens (IAC), Véronique Joumard (IAC), Bastien Joussaume, Dominique Lacoste (IAC), Marine Lanier, Jean-François Leroy, Anders Scrmn Meisner, Lamarche-Ovize, Agnès Poisson, Delphine Pouillé, Tilman – Cora Von Zezschwitz, Marjolaine

Selon un pli synclinal:
“Standing there, at the foot of a fault, at the foot of the synclinal of Saou, a rare and moving formation. Folded plastic sedimentary seat, eroded for 80 million years, became the motif of the sculptures created for the temple. The thrust of the Alps and the Pyrenees, two intertwined plates have produced this famous fold to which, in the image, the ripple of the roof, a diagram superimposed on the durations, from the oldest to the contemporary in its banality. Torment; moment of tipping. The relief of the anticlinals causes rapid changes in climate and light. At this moment contrasts come into play as two simultaneous seasons.”
