The artist Delphine Gigoux-Martin presents her art in parallel with a selection of works from the Pays de la Loire FRAC (Regional Contemporary Art Fund) collection by artists such as Neal Beggs, Christian Boltanski, Gerard Byrne, Hamish Fulton, Toni Grand *, Rebecca Horn, Christine Laquet, Eric Poitevin, Kiki Smith, Nancy Spero, Jean-Luc Verna, Yang Xinguang.

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.
