About

Au diapason du monde (In tune with the world) will exhibit a new selection of artists, bringing together an array of modern and contemporary works from the Collection which have never been exhibited here before.

Some 25 French and international artists are presented in two complementary sequences.

Sequence A, displayed on the 2nd floor, is dedicated to the Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, whose prolific work revolves around a culture that is both ancestral and contemporary, and upon which historical trauma and natural disasters have left a considerable mark. It unfolds in three parts: the first is arranged around DOB, a character invented by the artist and considered to be his alter ego; the second around a pictorial fresco which references the story of the “Eight Immortals” of the Taoist religion; completing the display is a “Kawaii” space of sculptures and animated films.

Sequence B extends through the rest of the building. It explores the current and recurring issues concerning man’s position within the universe and his relationship with other living things. The question has inspired artists and has led them to engage with and create pieces that resonate with works by researchers, scientists and also poets and philosophers; each artist questions the relationship between the different living beings, beyond the distinctions of human, plant, animal.
