Artist Salon with Manon Bellet
November 19, 2018 @ 6:30 am - 9:00 pm
Meet A Studio in the Woods’ newest resident artist, Manon Bellet, who has been awarded one of six Adaptations Residencies at A Studio in the Woods this season. Manon will present on her work to the group and then we will all share a meal.
This is a potluck, we will provide the main dish but ask that everyone pitch in a little something – drinks, salad, appetizer, dessert…
Manon Bellet is a French visual and olfactory artist who has lived and worked in New Orleans since 2016. Manon will extract scents from strategically chosen historic places in New Orleans and its surrounding regions which are destined to disappear soon due to ecological issues. This work aims to highlight the notions of being rooted and uprooted, especially in Louisiana. The project intends to show the risks for people who remain attached to their land, their territory, their place. Through the experience of these scents the artist hopes to broaden awareness of environmentally vulnerable areas.
