Frac des Pays de la Loire presents Galerie 29, a selection of works from its collection on the theme of play.
Play has always been an essential part of human daily life. This necessary breathing space, this truce in reality, is a way of reconnecting with childhood, even if it goes far beyond this quest. Play creates a parallel space far removed from reality and everyday life, where rules and behavior are precisely defined for a given period of time. Play is the principle of all culture” wrote Sigmund Freud.
Drawings, paintings, sculptures, videos, books and games by artists brought together for this exhibition testify to the importance of play, playfulness and fiction as essential components of life and art!
