In her work, Delphine Gigoux-Martin uses legendary tales and creatures. She draws them on paper or directly on the walls and creates sculptures from stuffed animals. Her bestiaries and fictional or dream-like landscapes remind us of ancient mythological tales. Her art revolves around the obscurity, the night and the strange.
During the exhibition “On a winter’s night”, the mediators of the estate of Garenne Lemot offer daily visits for all, to discover these contemporary works of art:
And as always, discovery visits in the estate, every Sunday at 3:30pm.
