An elaborate and extensive exhibition celebrating the extraordinary oeuvres of Claude and the late François-Xavier Lalanne. Transformed into a fantastical tea party-like setting, the gallery space overflows with surrealist associations, characteristic wit and inspiration from the natural world. Les Lalanne creates a world of fantasy, reflecting the artist’s delicate attempts at bringing nature into the home – visitors are invited to tea in a surreal room of Claude’s foliage-framed bronze and copper mirrors, surrounded by whimsical Lalanne-inspired wallpapers, her delicate Chaise Feuilles Bambou (2009/2017) and chaise aux Branchettes, (1996/2010) mounted on the walls, beckoning viewers to take their seats. Choreographed by interior designer Manfredi della Gherardesca, Les Lalanne brings together over 60 works by Claude and François-Xavier and offers a panorama of their artistic output from the 1960s to the present.
