Discovering the Hortillonnages, Delphine Renault was intrigued by the huts of hunters lining the pond of Clermont. She then wanted for the Festival to reproduce on a 1 scale one of these light constructions which she considered the most unusual, that with a wooden stove. Particularly strong architectural elements of the landscape of Amiens, the huts indicate a potentially permanent human presence while being camouflaged. The principle : do not assume to be seen while being visible. At the same time, the feeling of being alone on this site where silence and calm reign is very powerful. The architecture of camouflage, which is to be indistinguishable in an environment, takes up the codes of the landscape of the Hortillonnages shaped by man. This replica of an observation shed floating in a pond, bordered by benches offering a point of view for contemplation, creates a mirrored situation for the viewer. In addition, the proximity of apartment buildings, and more generally of the city, decontextualizes this functional and artisanal construction to highlight it. Delphine Renault’s gesture aims to give visitors a hidden element of this remarkable heritage. With her project Hutte, the artist pays homage to a typical Hortillonnages architecture which empowers the hut as a work.




The artist

Delphine Renault

Delphine Renault was born in 1984 in Paris; she lives and works between Paris and Geneva. She is a graduate of the École des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, Rennes and the HEAD in Geneva. Having a multidisciplinary practice, she mainly produces in-situ installations, at the scale of the body, which offer a new interpretation of the site. Designed like landscapes, her installations are punctuated by times of contemplation and wandering where the visitor takes on the roles of spatial landmark and setting activator. She has exhibited at Villa Belleville, Glassbox and 104 in Paris. She participated in the 2019 edition of IN SITU in Occitania. She has also shown her work in the Centres d’art contemporain d’Yverdon-les-Bains and of Geneva, at Zabriskie Point, at HIT, at la Halle Nord and at the Palais de l’Athénée.
