Seven international street artists
The exhibition "Wild Incursions" is part of the news. It was born from the observation, during the recent confinement, of the obvious porosity of the borders between nature and the city and the vision, all over the planet, of many wild animals straying into urban environments, wild boars, deer and foxes in the more spectacular West, felines in India, bears and elephants in China. Confrontation is now frequent and what seemed incongruous to us has become common.

Thus, the Museum of Hunting and Nature has chosen seven street artists to invest its rooms and create works that will question our cohabitation with a disturbed animal world. If urban artists make the bestiary a source of inspiration for their work, in the continuity of their elders, it is to point out the concerns of our contemporary societies. Crossed by environmental questions relating to the safeguarding of the animal species and its cohabitation with man, they approach here the impromptu arrival, as it recently occurred, of a sylvan bestiary in the city - stags, wild boars or badgers… By building the city, man has defined his own territory in which he reigns almost unchallenged. Outside, the countryside is a wild world, where partially domesticated animals live together with a whole untamed fauna, harmed by the actions and behaviors of men. Beyond the sole environmental purpose, the exhibition is also intended as a metaphor for urban art, originally qualified as wild, which, for the duration of the exhibition, takes over the museum; a committed art, witness and whistleblower.Incursions sauvage is organized as a diptych with the exhibition Diving into troubled waters at the Urban Art Center, Fluctuart. This mirrored exhibition this time questions the intrusion of man into the ecosystem of the Seine, in turn upsetting its occupants. Artists are invited to capture the aquatic fauna of the Seine: catfish, eels or pike... but also to imagine their mythological avatars or their biological mutations: mermaids, newts or hybrid monsters. is therefore a broad panorama of the street art scene which is revealed in the diversity of its techniques (spray, stencil, collage or installation) and its styles (graphic, fantastic or hyperrealistic) through the works of about fifteen artists international. A rare opportunity to follow the trail and then immerse yourself in the wildlife of street art.
