Les Machines de l'Ile Nantes



Many of you probably remember The Sultan's Elephant by Royal de Luxe. The artists behind that amazing show have a grand new project in Nantes, France called Les Machines de l'Ile Nantes.

"A team of machine builders have set up their workshop in the industrial warehouses of the former shipyards, at the heart of the Ile de Nantes. The designers let their imaginations roam from the treetops to the savannah to the ocean depths, building a bestiary of living machines that escape the confines of the workshop to populate this area under redevelopment. The Great Elephant, the Marine Worlds and the Heron Tree are urban sculptures open to the public. Like doors to the world of dreams and magical journeys, they give this area a mysterious feel harking back to the time when it was the starting point for vessels setting out to travel the world"
- Francois Delaroziere and Pierre Orefice

Loads more info available in this PDF.

A couple of sources alerted us to this info, but I think the trail started at Laughing Squid.
