In the heart of Saint-Étienne's creative quarter, the Parcours des bifurcations (Bifurcation road) structures the 12th Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Étienne 2022. The "road" leads you, indoors and outdoors between the exhibition areas, and forms an artistic object in itself, under the artistic direction of the Saguez & Partners agency and designed by Julien de Sousa.
It is a place for events, educational activities and experiences freely accessible to all.
A lively, fun space, it is designed to invite visitors on an immersive stroll during which they can apprehend what is at stake in different bifurcations.
All along the road, visitors are urged to take their time, to discover, to stop for refreshments, to take advantage of the indoor skate park, but also to come back and follow the programme of events.
Throughout the Biennale, numerous partners and cultural actors from Saint-Étienne Métropole and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region will be mobilised, with a some forty talks, debates, events, shows, concerts, projections, either in the Biennale theatre or in the open air.
These events will develop the subjects raised by the exhibitions in other ways and give rise to actions conducted in the Saint-Étienne Métropole and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
