The collection of the Hunting and Nature museum revisited by Richard Fauguet

Gilles Aillaud, Bertille Bak, Damien Cabanes, Jean Carriès, Johan Creten, François Desportes, Richard Fauguet, Fischli / Weiss, Walton Ford, Jean-Charles Hue, Nicolas Kennett, Laurent Le Deunff, Rainier Lericolais, Didier Marcel, Patrick Neu, Présence Panchounette, Shimabuku, Daniel Schlier, Elmar Trenkwalder, Xavier Veilhan, XNUMXth century ceramics, XNUMXth to XNUMXth century tapestries.

The FRAC Île-de-France and the Agglomeration Community of Marne et Gondoire welcome the Hunting and Nature Museum at the Château de Rentilly, inviting the artist Richard Fauguet to curate the exhibition designed from from the museum's collections. By drawing both on old and contemporary works from the collection and by associating with them other pieces loaned exceptionally, Richard Fauguet offers us an abyss of the imagination of the castle, intrinsically linked to that of hunting, thus inviting the nature and the animal world to enter inside the castle.
A very rarely shown set of tapestries from the XNUMXth century to the present day from the museum's collections structures the exhibition space. These very large tapestries become screen paintings allowing the landscape to penetrate inside the castle and thus echo Xavier Veilhan's project, who transformed the building into a projection surface for the surrounding park. The castle blends into the nature that surrounds it and which, in turn, creeps into its walls.
