Guest artist: Konstantinos Kyriakopoulos
In partnership with the Association le Transfo as part of the Été culturel and the commune of Aulon
Born in Athens in 1994, Konstantinos Kyriakopoulos is a graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Cergy (2018) and the Beaux-Arts de Paris (2021). His practice revolves around a favourite device, which he adapts to suit different contexts and purposes: the bed. In Aulon, Konstantinos Kyriakopoulos presents "To The Moon And Back", a sculpture-structure installed outdoors, opening up a dialogue between the landscape and contemporary art. Like an observatory or an open-air amphitheatre, the piece provides a place to be defined, either alone or collectively: whether you want to stroll around, look at the stars, have lunch, take a nap or chat, everyone is free to do what they want.
Complementing this production, an exhibition of works from the Abattoirs collection will be held at two sites in the village (la Maison du Pére Perrault, Église d’Aulon et granges de Lurgue), evoking our relationship with the sky and the imaginary world it inspires in artists. It's also a way of exploring the ecological value of the sky in this village, which has been classified as a starry sky by ANPCEN (the National Association for the Protection of the Sky and the Nocturnal Environment).
