DISCOVER ANNECY, OTHERWISE
From 2nd July to 25 September 2022, the 5th edition of the Annecy Paysages festival takes place. Discover or rediscover Annecy from an artistic perspective.
Discover the emblematic places of the city where you will observe some forty works, creations and reactivations of plant and plastic pieces. Annecy Paysages is a festival designed as an itinerary in the city. Let yourself be surprised by the open-air works. Visual artists, digital artists, architects and landscape designers interpret the urban and landscape space of Annecy, between lake and mountains. A way of reactivating your eye and questioning the nature / urban balance.
Locate the installations on the interactive map, and navigate between the different routes designed to discover Annecy Paysages by foot or by bike, by day or by nigh ! I discover the map
Since its creation, the festival has made it possible, in collaboration with the City of Annecy, to perpetuate several artistic and landscape works in the public space, thus gradually transforming Annecy into an open-air museum. This permanent collection invites you to see (or revisit) works of art all the year round that will take you to the most beautiful sites in Annecy.
You will be able to visit the main sites such as the historical centre, the gardens of Europe, or the Charles Bosson park and you will also be able to glimpse more unknown places.
For the more curious and impatient, here are some addresses of the major works:
- Placette de la rue Carnot (53 rue Carnot) = Place aux vers ! | Cultures Urbaines
- Le Pâquier = (1 Promenade Jacquet) Échappée | Sylvie de Meurville
- Parc Charles-Bosson (Promenade Docteur Paul Louis Servettaz) = Un potager dans la ville | Cultures Urbaines
There are sixteen new installations in the Annecy Paysages landscape this year : They include monumental sculptural works, like Jean Denant’s installation along the promenade d’Albigny, smaller but no less meaningful installations, like Ugo Schiavi’s creation in the old embarcadero at the Impérial Palace, landscaped works like Natures en nuances by the architects and designers of Collective R in the square de l’Évêché; and installations that show how we might use public space differently, as Atelier Déambulons, have done by creating a shady place to rest in the stony place François de Menthon.
