The island is not a random choice: “As in all legends or initiatory journeys, the voyage to the island is always a dual crossing: one physical and the other mental. It is about crossing over to the other side,” said the Director of the foundation, Charles Carmignac.
Once on the island, the visitor will discover a Provençal farmhouse blended into the landscape. Inside, the spaces expand to reveal 2,000 square meters of exhibition space. Natural light, filtered by a ceiling filled with water, illuminates the spaces hidden beneath the surface. Outside, a 15-hectare garden, conceived by landscape designer Louis Benech, is inhabited by a series of works inspired by the surroundings.
