MODERN ART

Discover Jean-Louis Faure’s sculptures in this collection

Jean-Louis Faure is a modern sculptor. His sculptures are presented as groups of miscellaneous items recovered and high jacked, in the style of the works of Marcel Duchamp, whose humorous and provocative tone is also present. These creations form atypical groups, without plinth or pedestal, unclassifiable objects difficult to reproduce or exhibit in a museum. 

Long-time friend of Jean-Pierre Verney, the artist is committed to and marked by his anti-militarism view, he feeds his works of anecdotes and historical references to the great events of the twentieth century (World War I and II). The Great War is one of the recurring themes in his work.

Contemporary art at the heart of the museum is a part of an approach in the scientific and cultural project of the establishment. The museum aims to give an account of today's view of the memory of the conflict.

In December 2015 the artist donated four of his works to the museum. The nave of the museum was designed so that the sculptures integrate with their environment in a coherent way, each echoing the space in which it is located.
