THE SHOOTING VAULTS "Les voûtes filantes"

Set aside of its stone-build big sister, an enchanting garden deploys, extends and tends under the stroller’s curious eyes. The sacred architecture that faces it is convoked in its entire syncretic dimension. Arcs of all origins are linked to one another by a colorful woven structure that performs with light and mystery; hence revealing a light dematerialized architecture, that the stroller admires its variations while wandering in the vaults. By these suspended Ariadne’s threads, the stroller is guided towards the center of the lot, a secret cloister. The glance rests then rises.
The Shooting Vaults project is part of 3 winning entries for the 2015 competition with the “landscape” garden theme. It is built to last during the month of June in the cloister of St Stephen’s Cathedral in Cahors, and could stay all summer long if artists and the organizing team agree on this issue. All together the festival exposes 25 gardens and counts 10000 visitors, it also greets many other activities all month of June.
