Estuaire 2009 - "La meute" by Stéphane Thidet
At the heart of the city, the castle recalls the Middle Ages.
Stéphane Tidet underscores this flamboyant anachronism
by re-introducing part of the wilderness of this era :
firts, he allowed nature to grow back,
then he asked for a hound of wolves to be put in the moats of the castle.

Estuaire 2009 - "Le pendule" by Roman Signer
This surrealist clock, without a hand,
indicates the slow decline of the building,
the inevitable race to death.

Estuaire 2009 - Le Refuge by Stéphane Tidet
"Le Refuge" is a piece wrapped up with absurdity :
a wood shed where rain is coming down in buckets.

Forty birds fly from their breeding ground to five electric guitars.
