Réveiller l'eau qui dort

from August 3rd to 08.28.2022

École des filles

With regard to the summer exhibition presented at the Ecole des Filles, the Summer of 13 Sundays is a literary event offered to the public every weekend of the season. More than an exhibition space, the Ecole des Filles is a space for sharing between artists, writers and the public. Sponsored this year by Mona Ozouf and Erik Orsenna, this summer's edition invites visitors to meet different personalities, literary, scientific or civil. Away from urban and tourist centers, the School is conducive to the smooth running of debates, based on our contemporary issues and concerns. This year, the theme of the meetings is "Réveiller l’eau qui dort". Wave, flat, salty, cloudy, distilled, the plurality of water and the ecosystem that develops within it opens a wide perspective to debates, reverie and interpretations. The power of water is examined this summer through philosophical and artistic approaches, in parallel to the works on display. Visitors to the Ecole des Filles are invited to take part in the debates and questions posed, to question themselves and the world on these common issues, and thus "Réveiller l’eau qui dort". From a poetic, scientific or ecological point of view, the debates around water will never run dry.
