The Hôtel WindsoR is a Boutique Hotel nested in a tropical garden with multiple species, in the heart of Nice. A Mecca of contemporary art, the WindsoR has been housing a collection of 30 artists’ rooms and works made In Situ along the years, since 1989.
Each year, the WindsoR welcomes you in a new environment. The Lobby invites a contemporary artist to invest the premises and dresses up with new creations. “It is still the WindsoR, neither quite the same, nor completely different…” in a light mood and always smiling… This year, it is the connective KKF/Keskon Fabrique who is occupying the space with the exhibition “Les Fleurs des males”. In 2014, Cynthia Lemesle and Jean-Philippe Roubaud made an original work in the garden: the Chambre des Penants or CHAMBRE…DES OISEAUX. Gilbert Pedinielli exhibited “Marylin voit double” in the bar and Ben underlines his presence in the restaurant. “La Luna” of Mauro Benetti can be contemplated in the swimming pool and give a magic atmosphere to the garden at nightfall.
The artists’ rooms open a window onto the world of contemporary art: the use of volume, the play of form and material, humor… Each bedroom is a creation, the fruit of the artist’s imagination, a reflection of his work. They always offer to the guest a space to discover. The newest one is by CHOI Jeong Wha, one of the currently most prominent artists in Korea. This collection of bedrooms constitutes a unique collection of In Situ works by world-famous artists (Ben, Mathieu Mercier, Robert Barry, Glen Baxter, François Morellet…)
