An original way to celebrate Halloween with the whole family: go to the forest of sculptures presented at the Zadkine Museum with this new exhibition "The Forest Dreamer"! Certainly it will not frighten your children as much as Milly's, but it will allow them to discover that it is the place of many myths and symbols, of fantasies and regeneration also in the world of artists. Inspired by Zadkin's 1943-1944 work, "The Dreamer of the Forest", the exhibition questions the contradictory fascination with the forest, from the beginning of the industrial revolution to the present day, which has been marked by unprecedented ecological upheavals. Drawing on multiple sources - poetry, philosophy, science - "The Dreamer of the Forest" crosses eras, media and genres. The exhibition brings together almost a hundred works by some forty artists. Thanks to exceptional loans from museums, private collections and artists, it sheds new light on Ossip Zadkin's work, the characteristic living materiality of his sculptures and their organic connection to the forest. The exhibition also questions the fascination made of the fear and enchantment that the forest arouses in the common imagination. To visit with your family.
