Bêtes Off

17 November 2011 > 11 March 2012

After colonising various sites throughout France as part of the Monuments and Animals national event, certain animals will come to hibernate in Paris. They will populate a mysterious forest created within the Conciergerie.

When they venture into this wild space, the visiting public will experience some strange encounters. As they pass along the themed paths – theAllée des chimères, the Route du lac and the Chemin du bout du monde –, they will come across arresting artworks: the creatures brought together here - fantasy objects, mirrors which reflect our own trials and tribulations and alarming testaments to the major environmental challenges we face - illustrate the diverse roles which animals play in the imaginative space of our contemporary artists.

Curator: Claude d’Anthenaise, Director of the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (Museum of Hunting and Nature), assisted by Raphaël Abrille, Conservation Officer of the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature.

From November 2011 to February 2012

I visited this marvelous exhibition in November--an unexpected highlight of my visit to Paris. The work is arresting and beautiful, some of it disturbing but all of great interest and superb claibre. Definitely worth a visit.
