Guillaumit & Bruit du Frigo
From 6 to 9 of October 2022
Perennial work - Opening 2:30pm
Watch out, it’s growing!
You can already come and contemplate the Moutonium installation. But to practice leapfrogging, you will have to be a little more patient and wait for the grass to grow.
Invited by the Electroni[k] association, as part of the participative budget of the City of Rennes, Guillaumit & Bruit du Frigo imagine a monumental playground, inspired by the creation of Bruit du Frigo in Houdain in the Hauts-de-France.
After a weekend of consultation around the event Courrouze Playground with the inhabitants of the district, the playground becomes a pasture of about fifty sheep that are scattered on the sector “Grande Prairie”, thus proposing, beyond many seats and a new place of conviviality, a poetic and playful image in the heart of the district, next to the future school Simone-Veil. Moutonium revisits the familiar leapfrog that animated the schoolyards and the games between friends of our childhood. The project is located on a stretched site constrained to the east by a valley and to the west by a school. To the north of the site is a small mound, a privileged place that was chosen to establish a small group of sheep in the heart of which hides a wolf.
A production site took place in November 2021 in the workshops “Comme un établi”, at the end of which the pasture entered into hibernation until its perennial installation in September 2022 in the public space, in the district of La Courrouze in Rennes.
Moutonium is a playground and installation in the public space, created by Guillaumit & Bruit du Frigo, on invitation of the association Electroni[k], as part of the participatory budget of the City of Rennes, submitted in 2018.
