IL Y A DES FLEURS PARTOUT
Mannstein & Vill
Le long du canal du Thiou + rampe du château + Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional d'Annecy
Maria Vill and David Mannstein, architects and visual artists from Berlin, hang their figurative collages on the facades along the Thiou canal and the castle’s ramp. With their 10 images, they tell the story of a child as if it were a movie unfolding scene by scene along this walk. By playing on proportions, dimensions, and openings, the images provide a new take on the architectural landscape of the old part of the city.
