How to visit

Felice Varini, the guest artist at the Domaine de Trévarez in 2015, is known all over the world for his work on perception and, more precisely, on the question of perspective. Depending on the places for which the work is created, he determines the exact spot from which fragments of lines drawn on an architectural ensemble converge to form a figure. Inspired by the neo-Gothic architecture of the château de Trévarez, he explores the volumes, lights and space of this impressive structure. In creating a piece of artwork that gradually comes to life as we move around it, the artist provides us with a fresh vision of the castle and the surrounding gardens.
His two complementary installations focus on, and around, the castle. One, entitled Zigzags sur le château, visible on two of the four castle walls, is made up of silver outlines directly affixed to the brick; the other Ellipse de bancs rouges is located opposite the formal garden, in front of the castle, and consists of an installation of about twenty benches in accordance with a predefined geometric logic. Through the two installations found on the demesne, Felice Varini challenges the vision that regular visitors to this prestigious heritage site may have, accentuating the charm and beauty of the castle and grounds for the duration of the summer season.
