Exhibition « Cabanes d’architectes »

This summer, the Donjon de Vez will host an exhibition dedicated to “small” examples of architecture or, as exhibition partner Philippe Gravier likes to call them, “jewels”.
The models and shacks presented are authentic “gestures”, at the frontier between art and architecture : the reduction in proportions allows for more creativity and freedom, and calls for a renewed concept of habitat. The style and personal imagination of each architect are deployed and echo contemporary ecological concerns regarding the rational use of materials, ressources and available living spaces.

Exposition “Première Mob / On n’est pas sérieux quand on a 17 ans”

On n’est pas sérieux quand on a 17 ans… Who is to say that Arthur Rimbaud wouldn’t have traded his semelles de vent for a blue moped to drive down main street terrorizing the good people of Charleville ? More than any other object, the moped symbolizes the no man’s land between teenager and young man : this passing age when blurred dreams flash through the mind. First moped, first kisses, and often first acne symptoms… Who hasn’t felt the thrill of freedoom while accelerating with a twist of the right hand ? I may not yet be the master of the world, but I’m the king of the neighborhood when I’m driving a friend around on the luggage rack while my exhaust draws smoke spirals on the asphalt.

What would Monsieur Hulot and Rabbi Jacob be without their Solex, or Johnny Hallyday without his Paloma ?

From Schumacher’s scooter to César’s compression, including the Dax, Monkey, Caddy, Manhurin, Vespa, Zoomer, moped are the stars.
