On the Île aux Fagots, the artist Thomas Wattebled has composed a circular message on the lawn. He has cast thirty-three letters in white concrete, and the message is read at grass level. This is a monumental installation of about ten meters in diameter and 2 centi-metres in height, which also describes the artist. “Sentiment de ne rien pouvoir ajouter,” he writes: ten years after his first participation in the Hortillonnages International Garden Festival in Amiens, the visual artist admits, with a smile, his discouragement in the face of multiple artistic exhibits that, year after year have enriched the site. But the message, without beginning or end and arranged in a circle, has a double meaning, ” ne rien pouvoir ajouter au sentiment,” depending on where the visitor starts to read the message. The temptation is to try to start reading the text from every word until the visitor is lost in the text and so he must walk around and around … unless he decides to interrupt this endless rotation by sitting down on one of the letters.

The artist

Thomas Wattebled

Born in 1990, Thomas Wattebled lives and works in Orléans. A graduate of the Beaux-Arts d'Angers with a Master's degree in theory and artistic practice at the University of Amiens, the visual artist questions, through his installations, sculptures, photographs or drawings, the symbols and values of our society's performance. "Rien à ajouter", follows on from "Dessalage",a work completed in 2010 which consisted of several stuffed geese.
