École Louis Malassis
40mcube coordinates the residency of Joachim Monvoin at Louis Malassis school in Saint-Hilaire-des-Landes.
The artist develops with 7 classes a project that consists in the realization of a sculpture that activates several senses: touch and sight, but also smell with the use of mud, and hearing by the use of a wet clay that the pupils manipulate to give it its final shape.
With the students, Joachim Monvoisin creates an imposing sculpture based on an assembly of heterogeneous objects brought by the children. The whole is then uniformly covered with cob, which unifies the volume and gives birth to a strange shape. The children also carry out a series of works that lead them to experiment with space and the question of the presentation of the works.
