“Idées détournées” is a nonprofit organization that was installed in the district of Lorient (Brittany) in the moment of urban renewal and growth in 2007, where more than a quarter of social housing in the city is located. The aim of this organization is to bring together all those who want to be artists or creators, for a day or more in the same space, creating fleeting works to be exhibited at the “Musée éphémère ‘.
This museum has 62 spaces divided into 8 apartments of a tower which was demolished in 2008, in which there are an endless number of classrooms for workshops of sewing, painting, carpentry etc. So this initiative give a new dynamic to the neighborhood, where currently it integrates different people that normally wouldn’t be socialized, thanks to the space the volunteers of “Idées détournées” have activated.
Thanks to the last party, made to commemorate the seventh edition of its Christmas workshops, beautiful and cheerful figures were created using pallets. These works of art are perfect for the outdoor spaces such as gardens or parks. Also, in the future they plan to sell all the recyclable ideas that have been building throughout the year with their volunteers. Next, we show you some of his works made with pallets, which mimic the old locomotives, planes and vans. These are perfect for the children to play and develop their imagination in an open space, while at the same time they interact between them.
