“For an art historian, to work with Mayeur Projects in New Mexico is a real opportunity. We are on the lands of the historic land art but also on those of the advanced research regarding ecology, a really big contemporary universal cause. I finish at the moment a work for French “Actes Sud” publisher, entitled “An ecological Art”. Plastic creation and Anthropocene: an immersion in the American West, the particularly sensitive zone since the 1970s in conservation and in the environmental protection, offers the opportunity to meet numerous local actors, and to exchange, in the frame in particular inter-university debates were set up by Mayeur Projects. Finally, meeting artists, numerous in the perimeter Albuquerque-Santa-Fe-Las Vegas, is always a big value for a first-hand work” Paul Ardenne
