Exhibition catalog - Jardins
The Jardins catalog explores the history and forms of this symbolic figure.
This is neither a history of garden art nor an inventory that claims to be exhaustive.
The book focuses on experiments conducted in Europe - and more particularly in France - from the Renaissance to the present day, without forbidding the punctual exploration of other places and periods.
A collection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings ... this book shows the garden as a total work of art that awakens all the senses.
The construction of a thematic itinerary, with poetic accents, invites the reader to a walk in three stages.
The first part is devoted to the vocabulary of gardens and presents its essential components (soil, flowers, fruits, trees, tools ...).
A second comes back to the reflections that order the garden as a totality constructed by showing a set of plans, sketches and models.
Finally, a third time questions the representation of the real: the works of several great artists and the exhibition of a corpus of gardens through photography and cinema, are treated jointly.
