Think modern art is pointless? The Domaine de Chamarande, nestled on the outskirts of the Fontainebleau forest in Essonne, will prove you wrong with this series of “practical” pieces. Between a sauna disguised as a projection room, picnic tables turned into hammocks for sunbathing, and rectangular barbecues planted in rows throughout the park – a clever nod to the minimalist sculptures of Donald Judd – the art seems to be all about relaxation and functionality. But upon closer inspection, the exhibition overflows with poetry and intelligence, expertly marrying the effects of its open-air surprises (warn your children!) with an intellectually stimulating commentary on ecology and perception. Why not wander for a while in a field full of marvels knowing that, behind each fantasy, one can find profound meaning?
