Commonly a space of dreams, the forest is above all a created space and it’s history is deeply related to the one of the mankind.
The exposition is structured between the fantasmagoric perception of the forest, as a freedom space, and the confrontation to it’s material reality and economic exploration.

Situated in the limits of the Isle-Adam forest, the Museum of Art and History Louis Senlecq has questioned the great functions of the forest: ecological, economical, social and metaforical, from the angle of représentations and uses.

The contemporary creation is enhanced through the pieces of Eva Jospin, YMER&MALTA/Benjamin Graindorge, Frédérique Morrel and the pantins of Arthur Aillaud, revealing their fascination for the vegetal element and the ambiguity of the relations of the mankind to it.
