Catherine Garret

Catherine Garret is graduated from Lyon National School of Fine Art. In 2009, she created with Mathilde Lecas « +Mieux », a graphic and space design agency working in the various fields of visual and event communication, graphic arts and set design programme.

She takes part in the Fête des Lumières with the programmation Superflux with Gymnastique Lunaire and Mushroom Town. As an example of scenographies she has realised in the public space, there is « Eléphanterie » at Roger Tator gallery.

Mysticète (2012)

After its Elephantastic roaming under the Menestrier path vaults loved by the public in 2011, the creation of Catherine Garret invites the visitors to escape. A whale stops on the Confluence’s beach for an aquatic ballet. Music, light and picture, everything is present to transfigure the place and to make the visitors dream.

Elephantastic ! (2011)

An odd encounter right in the city center. An African elephant really is caught beneath the archways of the Passage Ménestrier, between the Rhône and Presqu’Ile. A spectacular, strikingly realistic image concocted by the two Lyon graphic designers. Floating weightlessly above the cloud of dust created by its footsteps, the pachyderm seems to emerge from a dream. No waking up!
