How do I get there?

About

At a place called Léonard, lives Pierre Prevost, a sculptor who gives life to a whole bunch of animals made from old objects that are no longer useful today. Listen to him tell you about his work while strolling among his creations.

The path that leads to Pierre Prevost is to Léonard, a path populated by his creatures. At the entrance to the path, on the right, a sculpture with a QR code in its center that you can scan. This will give you access to two sound documents, one to listen to on the way out and the other on the way back.

There is no child document but they will not need it as Pierre's animals will take them on a journey.

In the first document, Pierre accompanies you on the way. Wait for him to say “we're rushing into the path…” to start walking.

The path is 900 meters to his house. During this journey, Pierre will explain to you how he gives life to all these objects from the past, how he chooses them in flea markets or how it is the objects that choose him! In this way and elsewhere, he realizes real stagings, playing with nature and its particularities... Pierre exhibits for the passer-by and likes to share his humorous creations.


We promise you a beautiful moment in a poetic and facetious universe.

On your return, listen to the second document “At the heart of Pierre Prevost's universe”. He will tell you more about him, his house, his artistic career. He created his place from scratch, first a cabin, then a workshop, then a house... and he gave life to so many sculptures that today the workshops are full of them and Pierre works on the outside! He tells us about his applied art training where he learned to work metal and goldsmithing. He tells us about the artists who worked with recycled materials, about Picasso and his sculpture of a bull's head! He talks to us about the objects he uses and the memories associated with them, a whole story of the 50s with the coal bucket and the stovepipes… He likes to hijack the objects that everyone knows like the fork! “I am happy to transgress in the end. Changing the function of something is a transgression! ".
