Champ d’expériences (Field of Experiences) marks the arrival of Marianne Lanavère, new Director at the Centre international d’art et du paysage (International Art and Landscape Centre), Vassivière Island in the Limousin Region, France. The exhibition draws its inspiration from past exhibitions at the Art Centre but also gives a foretaste of future programming. More than forty works—mainly sculptures and photographs—by twenty-one different artists are displayed in twin exhibitions running concurrently at the Art Centre and the Château of the island.

In keeping with this most uncommon of venues—a veritable field of potentialities—and also with the way it is experienced physically, the exhibition is a journey around materials and substances in all their aspects.

The exhibition circuit progresses in cyclical fashion from the Art Centre to the Château, from interior to exterior, while the order of display in each building evolves from the substantial to its dissolution and vice versa.
