The Language of Stones

From September 2009 to September 2010, the town of Cluny (France) commemorated 1100 years of it’s establishment through a year long event that invited citizens of all Europe to a series of activities in Cluny and partnering cities.

Visões Úteis was invited by the Fédération des Sites Clunisiens to create a multidisciplinary installation which opened in Cluny in September 2010 during the event “Toute l’Europe à Cluny”. This installation integrated contributions of 15 local partners from cluniac sites in 4 countries that the team had previously visited.

Cluny’s past influence in the cultural, political, geographical and spiritual areas was crucial to the definition of the very idea of Europe, and the dilemmas of the Order of Cluny mirror the ones of today’s European Union – how to maintain unity when territory expands, how to enforce a set of rules in a diversity of cultures, how to conciliate the cultural and spiritual aspects with material needs. This parallel, and the importance of the immaterial heritage beyond the stones of the remaining patrimony, were the project’s main themes.

The installation The Language of Stones ran from the 7th to the 12th of September 2010, having received more than 700 spectactors from all nationalities.
