Lets enjoy the late opening of the museum for our 1st visit of the year, around the artistic and poetic curiosity cabinet, imagined by Sophie Calle and Serena Carone

Sophie Calle’s work is built along the porous interface between autobiography and fictional narrative. The existential questions of perception, otherness, friendship and death lie in juxtaposition at the heart of her work, transcended by rituals and by play.
The exhibition is not only an opportunity to rediscover certain of the artist’s works in the unusual context of the museum’s collections but also to unveil new works created specially for the occasion.

Throughout her creative career, Sophie Calle has often borrowed certain of the emblematic facets of hunting. Her early works were the result of “stalking” strangers she came across in the street. She has also reversed the roles, becoming the prey when she hired a private detective to follow her and record her every move. Love, the reason for a different type of manhunt, provides a common thread running through her work, extended here by drawing on “lonely hearts” columns to provide the inspiration for two new works.

The artist Serena Carone was invited by Sophie Calle to create a dialogue within the exhibition and presents several works from her own artistic bestiary. Her work constitutes a cabinet of curiosities born of experimentation and using widely varied materials. The very opposite of Sophie Calle’s conceptual work, Serena Carone offers a world filled with wonder yet one that disquiets ; a unique view of the living world and its relationship with death.
