The association " Elephants' Memories " has
an educative objective : to make people sensitive to
the protection of the environment and a cultural objective : to promote the contemporary art.
ELEPHANTA,elephants' Memories consists in gathering, one day, in an exposition form, a
herd made up 1050 elephants-objects constituted
for 37 years, ornemental objects,
ordinary or functional in the shape of elephant numbered and artists'works
of art dedicated
to these same elephants.
Up this day, 932 artists-creators of 58 countries have answered favourably. The
picture of the elephant is symbolic. In fact, all animal species
are concerned and the artists have understood it; in this way they
testify for an essential worry of the end of this century : the protection of the planet.
One day, there will
be all over the world, I hope very much it will, 1050 works dedicated
to the elephants which will make the public opinion sensitive in
several towns and countries. These works pervaded by 1050 artist-creators' thoughts will travel down the ages and
will make us aware that we must love and take care of our planet
for our own survival and these of generations to come. In fact,
the art in the service of the life, the life being itself stemming
from the creation.
Works of art dedicated to the elephants
can already be seen in some Museums and also some F.R.A.C., etc...
