Exhibition Laurent Tixador
Laurent Tixador is an artist of DIY and physical engagement who works closer to his immediate environment. He makes it a point of honor to use simple technologies, exploring all the possibilities provided by recovered materials and testing his ability to adapt to extreme conditions.
At a time when recycling has become a major ecological issue, Laurent Tixador is experimenting with a recovery economy by building works with materials found in situ. Following participatory workshops with the public in February, April and May, a work will be created from elements recovered at the foot of the Citadel.
