Kader Attia, an artist with multiple identities, has been invited to create artwork for this event. “Marseille’s port has always been a symbol for me, and a synonym of travelling. I imagine a project that is open to all horizons: the horizon of the city, the horizon of the open sea, and the coastline.”
Part city, part island and part Mediterranean, the sea wall is both near and far away, a symbolic strip of land separating the port from the open sea.
This space where we see and are seen is a combination of inside and outside. This summer, the southern part of the sea wall will open to the public for weekend walks.
How to get there
Open weekends. Free ferries leave from the J4, quai de la Tourette (between the Villa Méditerranée and the Fort Saint-Jean).
Ferries run from 10am to 8pm
– Ferries leave every 20 minutes approximately
– The last ferry leaves the J4 at 6.30pm
For safety reasons, the sea wall will close in case of winds above 25 knots (45 kph).
