“Windy day” at the Chassiron lighthouse in Saint-Denis-d’Oléron
Every 2 years takes place around its famous lighthouse, the “Wind Festival” of Chassiron.
Organized by the municipality of Saint-Denis-d’Oléron and co-organized by the association Kosmodul’air, this festival brings together pilots and artists of the wind.
Upon arrival, the Giants of Heaven and the Wind Gardens of Kosmodul’air greet the public with warm color schemes, suggesting a colorful festive atmosphere.
In the background, the flying field is framed by banner installations opening up a perspective on spectacular and spectacular aerial installations.
The flight scene is animated by the demonstrations of the acrobatic flight teams as well as the visual and luminous performances of the artist Jean-Paul Richon. Finally, at the back of the stage, in a sky magnified by suites of Arches d’O, the Dancers of Heaven come alive in a field of giant poppies.
Once again in Collignon was held the day “Wind of Feast” in the town of Tourlaville.
Many events were planned on this day of celebration of the first days of summer.
We were partying with Kisa, Tom and Ramlal in the activities of making and flying kites.
There was also on the program:
– Nautical animations with the school Sailing and Wind
– Activities on the theme of the environment
– The feast of the game with the childhood service
– Beach soccer and beach volleyball, water aerobics and water walking
On this sunny day, but with a very weak wind, Ramlal flew his light and poetic Birds. For my part, I installed my O Arches able to hold in flight in extreme conditions. Using all of my kites “petals” I improvised a drawing evocation “point by point”.
The kite workshop led by Kisa and Tom was a huge success judging by the waiting girl filled with impatient children (see photo).
This day was punctuated with concerts, then in the evening took place the fire of St Jean followed by the big fireworks.
3 days at the festival of wind and free flight Occitan : “Buffa Venta”.
It is on the site of Cap Découverte, base of leisure created on the old site of a coal mine, that took place the festival “Buffa Venta”. In the day of Friday, it is not less than 1500 children who were expected for a day of flight. A little rain did not stop the toddlers with their kites made during the year. It is thus a real swarm of small kites which invaded the whole site. A true moment of magic!
On Saturday and Sunday, the R’Sky team filled the sky with its giants, its banner wall “Wind-Wall” and, in the evening, with the majesty of lines stretched in the sky, the “Vlags”. Participating kite flyers deployed their wind gardens and flying creations of all shapes and colors.
Bringing a poetic and bucolic atmosphere to this festive weekend, several bouquets of poppies were distributed on the site. In the background, the Arches d’O dressed the impressive panoramic view of the old mine, accompanying the reverie of the many visitors.
From April 20 to May 1, 2018, the Artevento festival bringing together 200 of the most famous wind artists welcomed us under a radiant sun. We raised the O Arches, Poppies and the new installation of the project “Profile” in the blue sky of Cervia.
Celestial sport was the subject of the thirty second edition of the Marseille wind festival. For this event or gathering artists and acrobats of the family of the kite of the whole world, a free contest of aerial ballet was organized. Among the pilots of the various usual categories (2 lines and 4 lines: individual, pair and team), I presented in music, an original ballet with my acrobatic single-wire kite, the Switch. Out of twenty participants, it is a very honorable fourth place that rewards my ballet just behind the best pilots world in 4 lines that occupy the first three places. It is therefore possible to perform an aerial dance and to infuse emotions with a single-wire kite in comparison with the performance of very technical gear.
Des Coquelicots sur le Prado
Under a radiant sun and a light morning wind, I installed a Bouquet of Poppies on the sand of Prado de Marseille. The wonder of the children was immediately translated by their invasion of the bouquet of giant flowers.
Un aquarium géant
It was in a steady wind that I realized an unusual arrangement of the O Arches. In association with Eolia Concept and its giant marine creatures, I installed all the O’s around the blue octopus creating an unlikely aquatic atmosphere.
Between sky and flowers, a day of entertainment in the heart of the Vendée
Welcomed by the Logis de la Chabotterie on this wonderful day of Sunday, June 11th, 2017, it was during the Garden Day that a bouquet of 29 Poppies grew in the meadow of the Logis.
It is therefore accompanied by Lilou and Pierre that we installed the largest version of the Hanging Poppy Bouquet for the first time.
On the ground near the entrance of the site, we also flying the Arches of O in conditions of weak but sufficient wind to sculpt a few elegant lines in the sky of the Logis, thus welcoming the public at the beginning of its visit.
The Logis de la Chabotterie is exalted
In this magnificent place dedicated to the culture, some “Meilleurs Ouvriers de France”, and Vendée, also decorated the estate with beautiful floral compositions.
The Vegetable Garden also surprised by its vegetable fantasy led by “Madame Salsifis” and “John Topinambour”. Madame de la Fontenelle also made a spectacle of her bucolic poetry by presenting Le Soin des Plantes in the 18th century. A culinary animation, A Tasting Bouquet, was presented by Chef Arnaud Acher. A discovery of the hives of the house was also on the agenda. A sculptor of balloons also marveled at small and large by his amazing floral creations.
This day was rich in discoveries and shared pleasures in the sumptuous setting of the Logis de La Chabotterie.
Sunday, April 23, 2017, I participated in Feast day in Kerguelen with Bertrand Lefebvhre of the company Eko-Kite(www.ekokite.com). This wonderful and convivial family day was organized by Sellor Nautisme at the Kerguelen nautical center in Larmor-Plage in Morbihan.
So it was with great pleasure the occasion for me to realize a decoration of this site. I have arranged several Hanging Poppy Bouquets and also flies an original installation of the O Arches. Thus, these compositions have brought a dreamlike atmosphere in this place for this particular event.
For the 24th edition of the Kite and Wind Festival, at the hour when the sun sets on the horizon and the light fades above the waves, empty space giving way to the spectacle of the setting sun. The organization of the festival gave me carte blanche to sublimate this particular moment of the day. In front of the casino Châtelaillon-Plage, I made this crepuscular flight by installing the Arches d’O, along with Jean-Paul Richon and his installation of sparkling ribbons Purple Rain.
During a short visit to the 31st RICV of Berck sur Mer, I found a place of honor and ideal conditions for installing my Arches of O above the large banner wall of Eolia-Concept. In this way, a scenic decoration of the main demonstration ground of this great event is realized.
