The RANN highlighted in the exhibition The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe at the Palais de la Régence in Ensisheim – from 16 to 27 May 2015

Exhibition The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe at the Palais de la Régence in Ensisheim – from 16 to 27 May 2015

During the European Month in Alsace, the « Palais de la Régence » in Ensisheim receives an exhibition on the 29 Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe. The « Palais de la Régence » is a stopping point of the Cultural Route Via Habsburg – 800 years of art and culture following the Habsburg’s trail, certified by the Council of Europe in 2014.

The exhibition is being organised by the Consulate General of Luxembourg in Strasbourg, in cooperation with the European Institute of Cultural Routes, the Touristic Development Agency of North Alsace (ADT) and the Regency Museum of the city of Ensisheim. The 60 notice boards written in French and English explain the Council of Europe’s program and the work of the European Institute of Cultural Routes. They particularly highlight with texts and pictures the broad diversity of the thematic Cultural Routes networks crossing Europe.

Launched by the Council of Europe in 1987 with the Declaration of Santiago de Compostela, the aim of the Cultural Routes program is to demonstrate, thanks to a journey through space and time, that the heritage of the different European countries and their culture contribute to the common cultural heritage.

Exhibition Flora's Feast at the Halles Saint-Géry in Brussels – from 7 February to 27 April 2015

The floral pattern in Art Nouveau

The floral pattern is used in the decorative arts or architecture since time immemorial and in almost all cultures. However, at the time of Art Nouveau, it is reinvented in our area upon contact with Japan of which borders open from 1868. Our artists discover then how their colleagues looked at nature: Japanese artists accepted the nature how she presented itself in reality, with its imperfections and its fragilities, and enhanced its particularities through their art. Flowers that can be found on Japanese fabrics, lacquered items or engravings presented a surprising aspect, sometimes tortuous, even withered, which was not habitual in our area. This new look at nature opened new ways of inspiration to our Belgian artists, withered with the academic repertoire. Our Art Nouveau overflows thus of original interpretations of the flower, under all its forms and colors. Our exhibition presents to you several examples through, among others, some posters, stained-glasses or sgraffitos from Brussels.

Curator: Guy Conde-Reis
Scientific collaboration : Françoise Aubry (Horta Museum, Saint-Gilles) et Eric Hennaut (Pechère Library).

This exhibition organised by the Réseau Art Nouveau Network at the initiative of the Monuments and Sites Directorate of the Brussels Regional Public Service in the framework of the "Art Nouveau & Ecology" project.

A book, in progress, will develop the subject (publishing around March).
