Invited for the first time during the Bien Urbain festival, the Ne Rougissez Pas collective ran workshops on the notion of “resisting today”. These workshops led to the creation of slogans and posters, which were then glued to the palisade surrounding the museum during the construction period.
At the end of the works, the boards were recovered and used to create street furniture to allow visitors to the Citadelle to sit back and relax.
The Ne Rougissez Pas collective worked with Léna Brissoni to make the wooden bricks and planks that were used to create the seats, using new assemblies and fixtures each time.
As part of the reopening of the Musée de la Résistance et de la Déportation, the Citadelle invited the Ne Rougissez Pas collective and the artist Léna Brissoni to create furniture to enable the public to sit down and enjoy the outdoor areas of the Citadelle.
Léna Brissoni : Giving people something to see or do, using the richness of encounters and journeys, is the instinctive creative path for artist Léna Brissoni. Inspired by the material, Léna draws her inspiration directly from her encounters with local people and passers-by, seeking to make them receptive to the beauty of their everyday environment and to (re)inspire them to do things together.
Ne Rougissez Pas : Ne rougissez pas is a French collective of workers: graphic artists, designers and film-makers, who also pass on knowledge and know-how, act as facilitators, organisers, manufacturers and craftspeople. The members see the collective as a working tool, built up day by day. The group pools ideas and creative and production resources to achieve common goals.
