THE RESIDENCE OF CREATION FONTEVRAUD LA SCENE + FESTIVINI
Festivini is the meeting between those who cultivate the land and those who discover it, taste it and travel through it. The wine provides this meeting. It is around this dynamic of sharing that was born this project of creative residency. With this expertise and capacity to implement graphic design projects, the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, by its territorial proximity and the artistic issues at stake, is the natural partner of this project. Thus, in 2014, Festivini joins Fontevraud La Scène to encourage and support contemporary creation.
Every year, we launch a competition for projects. It is then a real challenge that we entrust to the winning artist: creation of the poster Festivini, the collection of labels of the Cuvée Fontevraud (affixed on more than 7000 bottles) and design of an exhibition at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, which lasts one year. *
It is at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, in the old abbey house, that the artist will be staying for a month. Between meetings with the winegrowers and discovering the vineyard, the artist will immerse himself in the Saumur landscape. This experience is a unique opportunity to meet a different culture, knowledge and daily life. It is this anchoring in the heart of the territory that gives the artist the freedom to seize the image of the vineyard and those who make its history, its fame.
