Laurent Pernot's sculpture at Domaine National de Saint-Cloud

Je me souviens by Laurent Pernot

Je me souviens (I remember), a work by Laurent Pernot, is presented at the Domaine national de Saint-Cloud from March 6 to September 30, 2023, as part of the artistic program of the Ministry of Culture “Mondes nouveaux”. Imagined in-situ for the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, Je me souviens is a sculpture of letters in natural stone, a material whose temporality is similar to that of the surrounding nature of the park and the old castle on the estate.

As a selected artist of the “Mondes Nouveaux” program, Laurent Pernot proposed “to create a series of site-specific interventions, experimenting with connections between the physical experience of art and the experience of nature.” Je me souviens is the second part of this project, after “L’éternité devant soi“, also made of natural stone, on the archaeological site of Glanum (Bouches-du-Rhône).

“The health crisis has created distance and isolation, shaped new uncertainties and reduced our interactions with the environment, all generations and social classes mixed. In the continuity of recent projects dedicated to writing and poetry, I propose to invoke language through the presence of words physically installed in space, words conceived as in-situ sculptures, words in nature, in architecture, words that resonate with places, words that provoke experiences of reflection, taking into account the twists and turns of history where the environment becomes the setting for thought.”
