Vincent Mauger

For the metropolitan region of Nantes Saint-Nazaire, Vincent Mauger has built a series of oak sculptures along the estuary resulting in a series of viewpoints overlooking the Loire.

Drawing inspiration from old communication towers where flags were once waved to create visual landmarks along the river, Vincent Mauger’s five semaphores offer a number of stops along the bike path connecting Nantes and Saint-Nazaire.

Locations :

  • quai Émile-Cormerais, sur le site de Roche-Maurice à Saint-Herblain
  • sur l’île de la liberté à Couëron
  • entre le hameau de l’angle et la Loire à Saint-Étienne-de-Montluc
  • au lieu-dit du Pré du bec à proximité du canal de la Taillée, à Donges
  • rue de l’Aviation, à Saint-Nazaire
