CroisiEurope and the Rouen Armada
On the occasion of the Armada de Rouen, one of the largest gatherings of sailboats, boats and military ships, CroisiEurope is sponsoring the creation of a work of art created by Jean-Baptiste Sauvage as part of Operation Razzle Dazzle #4, in partnership with the association Le Sens de la Barge et Normandie Impressionniste.
As part of this event, a 28-metre boat was repainted in accordance with the "Razzle Dazzle" camouflage technique used during the First World War.
"What interests me is to work on a motif that is designed in relation to a moving form and which, in fact, changes its perception. The "Razzle Dazzle" embodies a particular moment in the history of art that fascinates me, at the crossroads of impressionism and cubism, with the notion of movement in evidence and in constraint, which is at the heart of this painting system initially thought of as functional," says Jean-Baptiste Sauvage.
You can find the boat and its particularities on the quays of the Seine in Rouen at n°107 - Allée François Mitterrand from 6 to 16 June 2019.
