The Art and Nature trail

Lee Ufan, Tomás Saraceno, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Ugo Rondinone, Richard Long, Tony Cragg, Irina Rasquinet, Elmgreen & Dragset...: great figures of contemporary art enrich and brighten the Domaine des Etangs, through a trail and an exhibition designed as the signature of the place, highlighting the way in which nature inspires those artists, who in return reveal it all the better. If nature exists as such, it exists even more potently when art observes it, represents it and finds its way into its lair. While each work develops its own language, linked to a specific apparatus and context, they all share a few common motifs. Through a secret game of correspondences and affinities, from colours to materials, the trail reveals a real visual and sensorial consistency, as if each piece interacted with another, as if each artist communicated with another as Art and Nature merge. Everything is reflected in everything. It is the interconnection and symbiosis of Nature and Art, like two magnetic forces drawn together, that unfold at the Domaine des Etangs. An estate that challenges the categories of Art and Nature.

 All of these pieces, spread between La Laiterie and a trail across the estate, highlight the links between the rational and the irrational, the infinitely small and the infinitely big, the visible and the invisible, the sky and the earth. All of them carry the pledge of the Domaine des Etangs: a place dedicated to protecting and loving our environment, as illustrated by the creation of on-site biodiversity inventories in collaboration with scientists or a permaculture garden.

Arts students as well as university students are also invited to discover the Art and Nature tours with their teachers.

The choice of works discussed and the approach are adapted to the age of the students. The purpose of the visit is to pique their curiosity for contemporary artistic creation by encouraging a direct encounter with the pieces and access to a diversity of points of view.
