Art and Tree
The Roure Arboretum is the only mountain arboretum in Europe to be linked to Art.
It has received the support of artists and writers such as Ben, Ernest Pignon-Ernest, Andy Goldsworthy as well as Louis Nucera, Arman, Jean-Michel Folon, César and Jean Marais who will forever be emblematic figures of the Arboretum.
Since the installation of Nicolas Lavarenne's "Grand Guetteur" at the château,Roure has entered the 21st century with a major work of contemporary art, creating a bridge with the medieval watchtower in the village and the "Art & Arbre" concept at the Arboretum.
Since 2003, the “no-made” traveling exhibition, created by Denis Gibelin, presents works of this group of artists on a theme, which is renewed each year.
“No-made" is a collective of artists with fluctuating borders who come together around projects that make sense and in which their know-how is freely expressed. The "no-made" spirit is characterised by its privileged relationship with Nature since the works are entrusted to it so that She re-sculpts them with the wind, the rain, the snow, the hail, the sun... "no- made” asserts eclecticism and positions itself at the conjunction of artistic movements such as Land Art, Arte Povera and Ready-Made. Using various and ephemeral materials, "no-made" intervenes in unexpected places such as the Arboretum of Roure which becomes its base camp.
The exhibition is placed under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco,who is very aware of the bridge between Science & Art on the site of the Arboretum Marcel Kroenlein.
The opening takes place every first Sunday of October.
