The FRAC Île-de-France and the Communauté d'agglomération de Marne et Gondoire welcome the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature to the Château de Rentilly, inviting the artist Richard Fauguet to curate an exhibition based on the museum's collections. Drawing on both the ancient and contemporary works of the collection and associating other pieces on special loan, Richard Fauguet offers us a mise en abîme of the castle's imagination, intrinsically linked to that of hunting, thus inviting nature and the animal world to enter the castle.

A very rarely shown set of tapestries from the 16th 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 the interior of the castle and thus echo Xavier Veilhan's project, which transformed the building into a projection surface of the surrounding park. The castle merges with the nature that surrounds it and which, in turn, penetrates its walls.
