Her name is No Reason to Movethe standing house of the artist Max Coulon is an impressive work, which intrigues. The work is part of the eighth edition of Un Été au Havre (Seine-Maritime) from June 22 to September 22, 2024.

A unique panorama

The house overlooks the Roy basin. Between the very contemporary Alta Tower and the historic architecture of Perret, the work stands out. And, as its name suggests, “she has no reason to move”, underlines the artist. The house questions as much as it amazes.

What is interesting is to see this structure, first in a forest setting, arrive in the middle of the city.

Artist behind the work No Reason to Move

This wooden character, looks at the horizon, in the distance over the city. “Something was missing from this building. We needed a presence,” confides Gaël Charbau, artistic director of Un Été au Havre.

Two sculpted feet, a supernatural side

There structure of the work is made of wood. This house is also an inspiration, that of “the story of the witch Baba Yaga”, taken from Slavic tales and “her house with chicken feet” explains the artist. “I am very happy to exhibit here. The rustic side in the heart of Le Havre it supports the contrast,” he adds. According to Gaël Charbau, “the people of Le Havre have already adopted it”.
