Alsace Lorraine - Yann Grienenberger

My name is Yann Grienenberger and I am a child of this region. After studying commerce, coupled with a strong mobilization in the associative and local cultural world, I am now involved in the life of my region as director of the International Glass Art Center of Meisenthal where I work since 2001. The "Bitche Country" is an incredible place with its archipelagos of valleys, plains and orchards, its majestic forests, its rocky spurs in pink sandstone, its heath sprays, its villages of bottom of valley, its wild fauna, its brooks and its ponds ... so many small magic worlds which make me travel without leaving. Shaped by a rich but sometimes cruel history, these lands embody what I imagine of a dream territory, which manages to combine(im)material heritage and modernity.
