Art project “IN NO TIME, Art and nature; precious things” covers several outdoor exhibitions and explores the dynamics at work in the evolution of our lands- cape. These installations respond to the theme of Intangible Cultural heritage by looking at living things and plant life in order to add substance to a space from an aesthetic and social perspective by involving different partners. Various temporalities are explored as visitors move from one space to the next. And as reading is key, visitors are guided and informed around the circuit by means of innovative signage designed using techniques developed by the University of Corsica’s Fab Lab and its Foundation.
The first stop “Along the way” is a space devoted to wildlife that is introduced to visitors by means of the decorative logo of the Corsica Grana brand, trademarked by the Environ- mental Agency. The path up to the esplanade takes visitors through a themed gardens area past the “Treasure” installation created by S & A de La Sablière; the alchemy of an art form that turns stone into gold. It’ s a divided space, in 4 different gardens declined under 4 themes: medicinal plants, aromatic, food, plus a last on the culture of the immortelle.

The aim of the arterra association along with the scientific expertise and technical resources of the Botanical Conservatory of Corsica is to introduce an experimental and aesthetic piece of work to the periphery of the Citadel. It permits the Museum of Corsica to pursue its thought processes in situ; thereby giving the island’s plant heritage a voice and helping visitors to better enjoy the synergy between the indoor and out- door spaces on the site.
