  • Historical sites and monuments

Exhibition "URSULUMES, D<->D - Yann Kersalé". Yann Kersalé uses light to create art, in the same way that other people use multiple materials of expression. He chooses the night-time, favoured by sensitive souls, as his testing ground. By setting spaces and constructions into motion, he brings new stories to the contemporary urban setting. For thirty years, he has travelled the world and explored different landscapes, from dusk to dawn. His works have included lighting up the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris, the docks of Saint-Nazaire, the MuCEM in Marseille, the international airports of Denver and Bangkok, and One Central Park in Sydney, Australia. When night falls, be sure to visit “Chemin bleu” on the banks of the River Isole, the first site of the Geopoetic trail that Yann Kersalé designed in June 2016.

The Ursulines, built from 1667, was a girls' school. Since 1908, it has become a state school (collège Jules Ferry). The chapel, built in 1674, is now the contemporary art centre of the Town of Quimperlé.
