Exhibition in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie


In 2021, culture will be king in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. From May 1 to October 31, 2021, an open-air, life-size exhibition will be held in the heart of one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France. With the support of the Moustiers-Sainte-Marie City Hall, the Tourist Office and a working committee represented by Anne-Marie Blanchard, Sylvie Alès, Aurélie Barroo-Micheletta and Pauline Delcuvellerie, 20 artists from different horizons diverse and varied come together to offer you a true artistic journey.

From July 3 to August 29, 2021, come and discover the Terres Noires / Terres Blanches exhibition by Marie-Odile Savigny at the Earthenware Museum and at the Galerie de L'Ancien Presbytère!


The Black Lands at the Earthenware Museum "If we help in the mysterious work of black earth, we better understand the gardening reverie which attaches to the act of flowering, to the act of embalming, to producing the light of the lily with the dark mud. .) black is as if fed on mud; it activates a rejuvenated plant life that comes out of a mud satiated with filth. " (Gaston Bachelard 1988: 127) Mixing the dark, digging into the material, questioning the work of time in the decomposition processes so that this nourishing compost makes culture, nature, our archeology push the living, the creative gesture carrying the "light of the lily ".


The White Lands in the Hall of the Old Presbytery: Each rock, each pebble in the highlands of Moustiers is an invitation to contemplation, a journey through geological time, into the infinitely large and the infinitely small. Each cavity sucks us into the intimate. Each moss or seedling testifies to the power of a living being born in the crevice of the mineral. In the white lands the noise of the world fades away, the human being is only a trace, a vestige, a memory. This work of earth and glass with the transmutation of matter by fire is a way of merging into this telluric power of the countries of the Verdon.


Two exhibitions are to be discovered in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. These two paths emerge from the mingled grounds in the workshop which cross, wander, fertilize each other. Les Terres Noires at the Earthenware Museum, Les Terres Blanches at the Salle de l'Ancien Presbytère.

Marie-Odile Savigny, glass ceramist, lives and works in Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. After initial training at ENSAAMA in the ceramic section in Paris, she encountered glass while working at the DAUM crystal works in Nancy. She collaborates with general collections and works with outside designers. In these Moustiers workshops, she works with sandstone and fuses glass to express her unique universe inspired by nature and the moving sensuality of bodies.




Workshop-Museum located at the bottom of the village in the Saint-Jean district, come and discover 50 years of earthenware creation.

You will know the different stages of creation of faience art through the material, archive images, collector's items, video and photos.

Also an Excellence in Provence boutique space with local products!
