The urban artistic intervention e.city «viva-city» will take place in the Robertsau area, close to Apollonia's premises (located 23 Boecklin Street, Strasbourg) and along the future tramway line extension (line E) at the Niederau paper mill, where the new terminus will be.

Being part of Apollonia's global proposition for the redevelopment of this south area, which is at the same time part of Strasbourg and part of Europe, this path will go through the city over several kilometres. The main target is to create an inspiring pathway through artists' installations, happenings and workshops.


Dates:

Application files should be sent to apollonia@apollonia-art-exchanges.com before: Thursday 30th of November midnight (GMT+1)
The implementation of the project will begin early 2018.


Specifications:

- Only creations, original and unprecedented ideas will be accepted.
- Each artwork will need to lead to a critical reflexion of our behaviour towards living things, and a written text can be used to illustrate the concept.
- The living matter includes the subjects of both kingdoms, vegetal and animal. However, for technical reasons, the 'viva-city' event will focus only on the vegetal.
- By 'vegetal' one should understand any element in the course of its vegetative (vegetable) cycle. Generally speaking, any element with physicochemical properties characterizing life which differentiates it from inert matter. This category includes mushrooms, algae, yeast, protists and higher plants.
- The materials and objects that will support the works (shelters, cages, terrariums, vivariums, greenhouses, earth, water, agars, nutrient media and nutritive substances etc.) are of course excluded from this restriction. The use of recycled materials will be encouraged.
- The 'urban path' concept, in any shape, will be particularly welcome.
- The selected pieces of art will be submitted to safety and feasibility standards related to installations in public space.
- This project will be an individual work or a collective work of artist's association, architects, urban planners, landscape architects...
