Eniarof is a reinvention of the funfair where the concept of the attraction becomes an excuse for art. The creators of each Eniarof take their inspiration from popular culture, ancestral and new, obeying the rules of the “Dogmeniarof”. Karaoke, Lucha Libre, video games, art installations, performances, gory films and curiosity cabinets can all be found on the jolly & unprejudiced grounds of the Eniarof funfair. It’s an ephemeral & multi faceted creature of a place, one often defined as “That thing called Eniarof”.
It was dreamed up by Antonin Fourneau when he was still a student at Aix-en-Provence School of Art. But from a student’s final project, Eniarof rapidly grew into a brand, one very much in demand from festivals in France and abroad, with an ever growing number of artists collaborations. In 2013, as Marseille Provence is European Capital of Culture, Antonin returns to the birthplace of Eniarof spending 2 weeks of preparation at the Aix-en-Provence School of Art for new explosive version of the fair.
