Collection of the dandelion root
The collection of dandelion roots was the first action that the artist Ju Hyun LEE proposed in the districts of Planoise and Clairs-Soleils during the summer period of July and August 2021.
Starting with the making of a “DANDELION” T-shirt to go harvesting with Ju, the residents of the neighborhood were invited to discover how to make dandelion coffee, from roasting to processing the roots. The participants then came back to taste it in September, during a “Café sauvage”, thanks to the coupon that was offered to them!
LES ATELIERS JUSTE ICI
The Ateliers Juste Ici is a project of collective and creative appropriation of public spaces carried out by the association Juste Ici since 2018 in the Planoise neighborhood and since 2021 in the Clairs Soleils neighborhood, in the framework of the City Contract. It is supported by the Ministry of Culture, the DRAC Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, the Agence Nationale de la Cohésion des Territoires, the Région Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, Grand Besançon Métropole, the City of Besançon and the MJC Clairs-Soleils. Thanks to the adult relay system, the artist Ju Hyun LEE will lead workshops and create works of art with the residents over a three-year period (2021-2023) in these neighborhoods.
Ju Hyun LEE is a South Korean artist who works with cultivated and/or wild plants, exploring all aesthetic, gustatory and convivial experiences. Her main subject of experimentation is food, food that changes our views, emotions, thoughts, daily practices, health, value, organization of work, and finally, the sense of sharing.
