l’art en plus advises La Résidence Saint-Ange since 2017.

Spearheaded by collector Colette Tornier, the Résidence Saint-Ange is a comprehensive support system of production and promotion for the emerging contemporary scene. Each year in Seyssins, near Grenoble (France), Tornier welcomes two artists selected by a committee of professionals and collectors. Each winner completes a three or four months residency, concluding with a solo exhibition at a partner institution and the publication of a monographic catalog. This philanthropic project, in the heart of Tornier’s estate, is hosted in an exceptional, specially-commissioned building dreamed up by French architect Odile Decq. Decq’s unique design—a black monolith that overlooks the valley—shifts the silhouette of the Vercors foothills, turning it into a symbol of creation and artistic life. The Résidence Saint-Ange celebrates its fifth anniversary in 2020.
