Weiner’s statement has become a key to the park display. Visitors will discover or rediscover the work making up the sculpture park, including monumental pieces by artists represented in the collection, such luminaries as James Turrell, Richard Long, Larry Bell, Tony Cragg, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Sir Anthony Caro, Phillip King, Arman, Richard Deacon, and Ulrich Rückriem, as well as Bernar Venet, whose sculptures for the Palace of Versailles show in 2011 have been put on view in a collapse-based reinstallation.
The installations allow visitors to enjoy an exceptional display in a natural setting of extraordinary beauty in the heart of Provence.
The pandemic lockdown brings back a practice inherited from conceptual art. The conditions for preparing the exhibition have also been transformed since things were done via telephone and digital communications. Because of the pandemic and the subsequent confinement, workarounds took shape to help design and put together exhibitions, breathing new life into practices that presided over the birth of conceptual art in the 1960s
