Info

In the Spring of 2017, Pierre Yovanovitch welcomed painter Claire Tabouret as artist in residence at the Château de Fabrègues, in Provence. Les Enfants de la Chapelle, Claire Tabouret’s first site-specific work, reflects the subject of childhood, a theme that has been central to Claire Tabouret’s paintings for years. This fresco, composed of 85 children painted full-scale, unveils, her own image of childhood, composed with lucidity and intensity, but also serenity and gravity. Painted on the walls of Yovanovitch’s 17th century former-chapel, the vibrancy and reflective nature of the painting highlights the historical integrity of the chapel, which itself was once used as a place of solace and reflection. “Marking this place with something that will remain after me, after Claire, seemed to be a noble gesture. Fabrègues is the project of a lifetime. I don’t know what will become of Fabrègues, but in any case, the fresco will certainly remain.”
