Before being an exhibition, La Cueillette first took the form of a residency during which artists were invited to create works in sites of their choice. The artists worked in specific sites or branched out from them, intervening in the landscape and architecture as well as the vocation, function, and history of their chosen sites. And so, under the theme of La Cueillette, in situ works “appeared” in the landscape, scattered here and there throughout the village of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. For a month, the installations “inhabited” diverse unusual sites, including a chapel, a riverside cottage, a former mill, places along the main road, vacant lots, fields, restaurants, snack bars, and the access to the dock.
