Françoise Pétrovitch at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature
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. www.chassenature.org
