Françoise Pétrovitch at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

 In > art culture design

This autumn, strange creatures have taken over the city’s charming ‘hunting and nature’ museum. French artist Françoise Pétrovitch has spent the last two years creating these works – sculpture, engravings, video – which are casually installed around the museum, subverting its permanent collections. Playing with museographic convention and the meaning of the collections, the exhibition installs a glass doll in the weapons room, a ceramic princess in the main stairs, engravings in drawers, a luxury picnic set in the dresser, blown glass cages hanging in the reception room, a monumental sculpture in the courtyard…
Until 8 Jan 2012. 6€/4.50€. 11am-6pm, closed Mon.
Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, Hôtel de Mongelas, 62 rue des Archives, 3rd.
