This exhibition invites several generations of artists who have reproduced, taken or used natural elements in their works. Through their eyes crystallize the many facets of this ‘Nature’, at once peaceful, tumultuous, wonderful and worrying.

The exhibition plays on the respect, vulnerability, force and fear  Nature arouses in us today.  In transparant filigree the gaze of the long evolution of the Western is reflected in its environment. From The garden of Eden to environmental disasters, of mother nature to that of the sublime, our vision of nature ceased to transform.
Today, it is by our actions that nature is transformed in turn.

Playing on nature and artifice, will today’s artists help us to re-enchant the nature of tomorrow?
