Estuaire is an artistic adventure in three acts. Estuaire refers to the ‘Estuary’ of the Loire between Nantes and Saint-Nazaire, where the final act was played out in the summer 2012. Acts One and Two took place in 2007 and 2009, when 30 works were installed in Nantes, Saint-Nazaire and along the 40 miles/60km of the Loire estuary between the two cities. Some installations were only shown during Estuaire 2007-2009 summer events; others were thought as permanent, offering visitors a year-round ‘cultural art trail’. In 2012, eight new works were added
to the permanent open-air collection.
