  1. 1. L´art public en Martinique Dominique Brebion Public Art in Martinique
  2. 2. Public Art in Martinique The stained glass window panes of the Saint Pierre Cathedral The stained glass window panes created by Victor Anicet and realised by The Simon Marq workshop from Reims for the Saint-Pierre Cathedral are definitely the most important action in Martinique in 2006.

  3. 3.

Victor Anicet, Les Vitraux de la Cathedrale de Saint Pierre
  4. 4. Public Art in Martinique The stained glass window panes of the Saint Pierre Cathedral The diocesan association, owner of the building - entirely registered as a historical monument in the Inventaire Supplémentaire des Monuments Historiques - entrusted The Soroptimist Club with the management of the work.

  8. 8. Public Art in France Other recent window panes in France All these build up progressively, a history of the contemporary stained glass pane, along with its iconographical and stylistic development. In fact, several recent commissioned projects have for a few years, supported the artists in the realisation of art works in the field of religious art. Pierre Soulages, Conques
  9. 9. Public Art in Martinique What Victor Anicet says “It is the immersion in our tropical forest, in a womb-like environment, literally, that helped me find the inspiration. Spanning the vegetal entwining, photographing the designs of forms and curves, pierced here and there by spikes of filtered light. The surrealist manner of André Breton’s work, Martinique, Charmeuse de serpents, majestically illustrated by André Masson, as well as Wifredo Lam’s Jungle were a great help. All three had been introduced to the universe of “ la Trace ” by Aimé Césaire when they visited Martinique and all took their inspiration from there in their creative action ”. Victor Anicet. Victor Anicet – Detail photos - Les Vitraux de la Cathedrale de Saint Pierre
  10. 10. Public Art in France What is La commande publique ? It is one of the most significant artistic decentralisation the French Ministère de la culture has endeavoured for the last twenty years. It has resulted in a series of works bringing contemporary art into everyday life. The term commande publique indicates both An object: Art work which, outside reserved spaces, aims at some contact with the population in the places where they live. A procedure: « La commande publique »,from the initial project until the realisation of the work and the final reception by the public. Daniel Buren - Les deux plateaux –1986 – cylindres de marbre noir et granit blanc - Cour d’honneur du Palais Royal - Paris – Commande publique du Ministère de la Culture
  11. 11. Public Art in France La commande publique in France Commissioning projects is one of the procedures initiated by the Ministère de la Culture through the Délégation aux Arts Plastiques since 1983, aiming at  stimulating the creation of living artists  encouraging the contact between the public and contemporary art. Numerous works of art, among which sculptures, paintings, installations, environment, video art, furniture, half of which being displayed outdoors have thus been commissioned. Sol Lewitt – Wall Drawing n°711- 1990/1992 Musée de Picardie -Amiens – Peinture polychrome et lavis d’encre - 1%
  12. 12. Public Art in France Different types of procedures are available  On a national basis, financed by the government, and supervised by the CNAP - Centre National pour les Arts Plastiques - which amounts to about twenty projects per year at a total cost of 2M. €  On a regional basis co-financed by the government, public regional financing; and for a lesser part, private financing. This represents seventeen projects at a total cost of 2 M.€ The impulse initiated by the French government during the eighties encouraged many other corporations to start initiating programmes to commission public works. Joseph Kossuth – Hommage à Champollion -1989/1990 -Figeac (Midi Pyrénées) –granit noir gravé au sable – 92 M² et 50 tonnes – Commande publique décentralisée Ministère de la culture et Municipalité de Figeac dans le cadre des Hommages aux grands hommes – Bicentenaire de la naissance de Champollion
  13. 13. Public Art in France These programmes are built up thanks to public assemblies: government, region, local councils  to launch a new urban programme,  to help rebuild a new area or a public area,  to rehabilitate a historical monument,  to commemorate a personality or event. Daniel Buren Rayonnant –2002 - Sérignan (Languedoc) –métal déployé et fibres optiques - Commande publique décentralisée – Ministère de la culture et municipalité de Sérignan
  14. 14. Public Art in France Stage 1 From the commissioning action to the complete realisation of the work. Supervising committee and experts committee Once the local assembly has decided, a supervising committee is appointed. The latter is composed of elected members, presided by the chairman of the community of cities. It defines the project and makes decisions concerning realisation A committee of experts brings their help  in suggesting artistic choices  in advising the committee in the selection of artists. Emmanuel Saulnier - Rester Résister – 1994 - Vercors –73 stèles de verre nu de 2 m sur 0,90m les plus grandes ; les plus petites sont les plus nombreuses – soixante treize noms gravés sur une bande de granit de 26 m – Lieu de mémoire en hommage aux victimes civiles de 1944 - Commande publique décentralisée Ministère de la Culture et Parc Naturel du Vercors
  15. 15. Public Art in France Stage 2: the initial contract Once the decision has been made, an agreement is signed either with the DRAC, or with the central services of Dap or Cnap. The designated artist or team receives a contract which defines the object of the project and the cost, along with the written details about the work. This initial contract is entirely financed by the government and does not guarantee its realisation. Carmen Ines Blondet – Crecimiento en Brazil – 1994 Saô Paulo – Acier corten, Acier inoxydable Muséo de arte contemporaneo , Universidad de Saô Paulo
