In partnership with the association "les 3 arches, hier aujourd'hui demain

In 2023, the association "les 3 arches, hier aujourd'hui demain" is organising an event linked to Pyrenean myths, legends and rituals as part of its multiannual Heritage and Contemporary Art programme in Donezan (Ariège). This event is associated with the trans-Pyrenean programme "Mountains and Artists". Works of contemporary art are invited to discuss or confront a local heritage theme, evoking and illustrating rites of passage, witchcraft, seduction, death and mourning. With the aim of creating a culture that can be shared by as many people as possible, volunteers will be on hand to pass on the meaning of both the documentary aspect of the theme and the works on display. "Enjamber les ombres" will thus take place on eight sites in Donezan: churches, temporary exhibition halls, an old glassworks reactivated by young glassmakers, in the villages. Thirty-eight artists will be represented, in equal numbers, by sixty works.
