Noémie Sauve is a visual artist born in 1980 in the Drôme, France. She now lives in Paris and is a committed activist.
She has been selected by the prestigious jury of the TARA PACIFIC Foundation to complete a unique two-month residency with the Tara Expedition, a schooner that travels the world’s oceans with scientists on board studying the oceans and how to preserve them.
This project was developed with a view to an exhibition scheduled for the end of 2018, which will show her drawings done on Moulin du Gué® paper.
The Tara Foundation
The Tara Expeditions Foundation aims, through its different missions, to raise society’s awareness of the most urgent ecological issues and the problems facing populations that depend on the good health of the ocean.
The artists-in-residence aboard the ship are a different way of raising the general public’s awareness of the marine environment, its fragility and the treasures it contains.
The members of the “Tara Pacific” jury were:
- Agnès b. Chair of the jury and partner of the Foundation
- Etienne Bourgois, President of the Tara Expeditions Foundation
- Romain Troublé, Executive Director of the Tara Expeditions Foundation
- Élodie Cazes, Coordinator of the Agnès b. art collection
