The exhibition presents works by sculptors Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne along a visit route that leads from the gardens of the Petit Trianon to the Queen's Hamlet. The exhibition reveals poetic and surrealist animal sculptures, created over the last fifty years, in dialogue with the bucolic atmosphere of the location. Claude Lalanne was trained at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and her exceptional reputation is now celebrated worldwide. Claude Lalanne's works are made using techniques related to imprinting, casting and electroplating, and freezing natural forms, instinctively transformsing them into sculptures, tables, chairs, benches or mirrors. Francois-Xavier Lalanne is convinced that sculpture, and more generally the work of art, can have a function. There is no confusion between their very different approaches to sculpture, molding and assembly for her, drawing and construction for him, nor between their worlds, classical and architectural for Francois-Xavier, organic and baroque for Claude.
