      Guided visits:

      The collection can be visited exclusively by reservation during guided tours lasting an hour and a half. Please do not hesitate to contact us to organize group visits for groups of 10 or more.

      The ARTISSIMA Collection is the private collection of contemporary art of François and Michelle Philippon.

      François Philippon is a collector of contemporary art; he has been searching, discovering and buying works for over 40 years. Michelle has always supported this project and has been very committed to the opening of the Moulin, a private space that houses this collection of paintings and sculptures, but also photographs, drawings, videos and other installations by international artists.

      The ARTISSIMA Collection is the story of a private passion, started at a very young age. It is not a family story, but the passion of a life, intimate, discreet and constant over the years.

      From Paris, then quickly from Lyon, acquisitions are made "with the head and the heart", mainly from galleries, in France and abroad. The ARTISSIMA Collection has been built in freedom and exigency, around a deep love for art, the sensitivity of artists and their place in the history of their time. The choices are mainly focused on themes such as fragility, rupture, construction/deconstruction.

      This collection reflects the journey of a man who today assumes this passion to the point of being able to propose this very personal place, which resembles a museum without being one. In this private place, which is not subject to the constraints of a museum, there is a real desire for freedom, sharing and transmission.

      Capacity: 15 people [FULL / Booking no more available]

      Guided tour: Wednesday 26 June, 9am-12.30pm, by Pierre Gras, Honorary Professor at the École nationale d'architecture de Lyon.

      Between 1910 and 1920, Tony Garnier built three villas on the Saint-Rambert site, on the banks of the Saône. The first was for himself, the second for his wife and the third for a private client, Antoinette Bachelard. These three buildings are among the pioneers of the Modern Movement, offering a different perspective on its beginnings. Their construction and decoration are particularly interesting for their materiality. The first two are artists' homes, and are sensitive and seminal testimonies to the movement. The owners of these villas have agreed to welcome a limited number of visitors. Their visit is an exceptional opportunity.

      Du projet à l'objet - Matériaux à l'oeuvre

      Précédent les projets : un mille-feuille, de choses vues, lues, entendues et mémorisées, de parts larges ou minimes, concrètes, découvertes, choisies, cadrées, prélevées dans le monde et rendues au monde, métamorphosées à l’aide d’actions nécessitant des outils précis.
      Un exemple simple avant la photographie numérique : Lônes, 1989 photographies de paysages.
      De l’idée à la réalisation, comment les matériaux intellectuels et matériels mènent l’œuvre en constante synergie. Liste et description des outils et des actions nécessaires, depuis la recherche du titre jusqu’ à la réalisation d’une exposition, d’une édition.
      Un exemple complexe au temps du numérique : 42,84 km2 sous le ciel, portrait de ville. Interviennent des recherches en archives, des articles de journaux, des portraits, des plans urbains anciens et modernes, des statistiques, des dessins, des interviews, des vidéos, des ouvrages précis, des plans anciens, une nécessaire formation à la météorologie…
      Suivi de la mise en œuvre avec la description des 8 outils numériques nécessaires.

    • Lecture of Gilles Clément & Coloco at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Lyon

      Organised by the Musée d'art contemporain de Lyon and Archopel, the maison de l'architecture de Lyon

      Depuis que la crise environnementale mondiale a radicalement changé l'approche des projets, nous sommes poussés à inventer de nouvelles stratégies. Immergés dans le jardin Planétaire, au sein du Vivant, nous cherchons à développer le projet en termes de temps au-delà de la création spatiale. La Préséance du Vivant propose une façon d'explorer les dimensions collaboratives et les méthodologies pour s'intégrer dans les dynamiques du Vivant. Cette opportunité de partager notre travail à Lyon avec cette exposition vise à réfléchir collectivement à notre responsabilité en tant que paysagistes pour façonner de nouveaux futurs.

      « L’avenir sera fait de métissages naturels, culturels et technologiques imprévisibles. Nous devons repenser la place de l’espèce humaine au sein du vivant avec une responsabilité d’invention face à l’enjeu de préserver l’habitabilité de la planète. La nature n’est pas un état idéal, nostalgique d’un passé idéalisé, mais une force de renouvellement à comprendre avant d'intervenir sur un projet. À chaque situation ses réponses concrètes, toujours collectives et engagées durablement. »

      Lecture on the occasion of the exhibition at the Orangerie du Parc de la tête d'Or
