Les Subsistances

Les Subsistances, Lyon 1

At the start of the 17th c., the Order of the Visitation occupied the Couvent Sainte Marie des Chaînes. This convent was taken over by the Army in 1807 and converted in 1841 to make bread until 1995 and to roast coffee until 1960.

The only vestige, the bakery, was transformed into a 120-seat venue, renovated from 1999 to 2001 by Denis Eyraud. The School of Fine Arts has been established there since March 2007.

You can almost reach out and touch the moon under the glass ceiling of Les Subsistances.

Indeed, the moon has never been closer than here in Lyon in December. You can observe the details of its surface and at last discover its hidden face or simply bask in its celestial aura, bathed in a pale light and accompanied by an ethereal soundtrack.

Choreographer Jordi Galí explores a dual language - corporeal and material - accompanying the collective creation of a monumental, suspended assembly composed of different modules made of wood and rope.

Lighting incorporated into each module illuminates the structure. Every 20 minutes, it will be activated by hand by the participants creating it, the kinetic energy generating the power to supply it with electricity.

A photo exhibition near the artwork testifies to this collective experience.
