From 23/09/2020 To 30/09/2020

The landscaped park is a bucolic invitation to slow down the pace and observe nature and architecture in full consciousness. From July 8 to September 20, 2020, this magnificent setting will host a ceramic and sound installation making the murmurs of the Neuenbourg perceptible.
Take the time to observe the ceramic works of Nathalie Meyer. Eight creations punctuate the route along the terrace of the castle and in the park. Thanks to the use of different ceramic techniques, the earth, minerals and flora of the park mark these works. These references are also found in the shapes and colors of the three-dimensional pieces: plant buds, rock forms, white, black and shades of blue, water green and crystallization effects. These effects and play of materials create subtle surprises within the park.

Pay attention to the murmurs transmitted by these works... Three creations realized in collaboration with Romain Muller, will animate the course.
Throughout the day, from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm, "Le Murmure végétal" unveils the sounds of nature and life in the park that interact with electronic music. Nature and human creation mingle in harmony underlining the musicality of the rustle, lapping and chirping of the park. Let yourself be transported to the heart of Neuenburg.

At 4 pm., families will discover "La quête du jardinier", a botanical adventure. The Neuenbourg Park is a bucolic place to relax, but it is also a place of innovation and creativity. Let the adventure of gardener Gustave Reinbold tell you more! Through his journey, you will discover the industrial Guebwiller, life in the 19th century and meet exciting characters such as Henry Schlumberger, Professor Fée but also the worrying customs officer of the German states.

The country contemplation continues at 6pm with a bit of "Natural Philosophy", thanks to the poems of the Lyrical Offering by the Indian author Rabindranath Tagore. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, he takes a meditative look at nature and time. He thus proposes to live his life in peace, to the rhythm of Nature and the seasons. His observations of Nature and human emotions invite readers to seek their personal and inner divinity. Influenced by the mysticism and popular music of Bengal, his poems are full of lyricism conducive to contemplation.
