Artist residency 2021
At Château de Candes
You will have access to the Castles Terrasse with a breathtaking view on the Loire River. Come discover the Street Art Parc with family and friends.
The key qualities of the project are freedom, simplicity and pedagogy. Through a route around the property, you will be able to discover the differing techniques of urban art, and explore its relationship with nature. Ideally, this will reveal all the imagination that the landscape contains.
“Duchamp was above all a free spirit who wanted to break the rules. We want to encourage visitors to question the notion of art and art object, but also to assess the artistic heritage of Marcel Duchamp. Because like him, what we “love about art is, above all, the artists”! —
Monique Pignet, founder and owner

Street Art is poised to become the most popular art form today. In the space of a few days, a few nights, Street Art artists brang their personal energy into a place. They adapted immediately to a site and to ephemeral nature. This is precisely what the owners of Château de Môh understood when they entrusted Fabrice Claval, former director of exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, with the artistic development of the park. Together they invited more than 20 artists to come and settle in residence at the Château de Môh and by offering them supports scattered over the 5 hectares of the Château’s park. A month later 40 art pieces were produced!
Since its inauguration in 2019, the Street Art Parc has hosted the works of nearly 35 artists:
Alan – Bault – Docteur Bergman – Regis Bour – Julien Bur – Diane Delaroque – Drea – Drope – Espion – Furious Five – Jacques Halbert – Latigro – Moha – Mosko – Nassyo – Nuage 40 – Martin Peronard – Pimax – Popay – Popof – – Alan Reuiller – Clement Schoëvaërt – Sitou – Skio – Stay Reo – Supo Caos – Team – Tetar – Fabienne Teyssier Monnot – Urm – Alexandra Vagnini – Vag M – Vico & Ben
