l’art en plus advises La Résidence Saint-Ange since 2017. To celebrate the 5 years of the program, the agency has launched an Instagram account dedicated to the fund and manages the communication of the anniversary exhibition in Paris during the FIAC.
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.
