The artist Ju Hyun LEE continues his cycle of work with earth with his new sculpture Bibiche on fire, in the Jardin des Lumières in the Clairs-Soleils district.
Since the summer of 2022, various workshops have been held in Clairs-Soleils to bring this giant turtle out of the ground:
Bamboo weaving workshop and construction of the shell
Workshop with tomettes to cover the shell little by little
Workshop to build the head and the legs
Next to the turtle, a ceramic kiln has been built to bake the different clay creations made with the inhabitants during the workshops. Four firings are planned at each solstice and equinox until June 2023.
It is with the association aaaaaa and within the framework of the Festival of ecological solutions proposed by the Region Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, that we inaugurated “BiBiCHE ON FiRE” and carried out the first firing with the kiln, on Friday 23 September 2021.
