Discover the fascinating world of still life art in this exhibition that spans different time periods and mediums. Still life has often been neglected in art history, especially in this country where landscape art dominates the scene. It is frequently regarded as merely decorative, without much depth or meaning. This exhibition aims to challenge this perception by showcasing diverse and innovative approaches to the still life genre, some of which subvert the expectations of the viewers.

The exhibition presents a rich variety of still life works, including paintings, moving images, sculptures, photographs, and more. It also features an intriguing twist: three-dimensional recreations of painted still lifes, such as the ceramics of Anne Verdcourt. These works invite you to experience still life in a new and exciting way.
