Studio Orta Les Moulins

Lieu-dit Le Moulin Sainte-Marie
rue des Papeteries, 77169 Boissy-le-Châtel, France

Founded by Lucy + Jorge Orta in 2000, in the birth place of the French paper industry, the Papeteries du Marais, Les Moulins is emerging into a veritable cultural laboratory. Imagined as an extension of the artists' practice, Les Moulins has become a collective environment dedicated to the creation of new forms of contemporary art informed by the post-industrial landscapes of the Grand Morin Valley. Dotted along an 8-Km stretch of the meandering river, the four former factories Moulin Sainte-Marie, Moulin de Boissy, Moulin La Vacherie and La Laiterie are undergoing transformation to become artist studios, workshops, residencies, exhibition galleries, performance venues and a sculpture park; hosting artists and researchers from around the world, to re-imagine space and create artworks that resonate with the history of the place.
