    Archaeology and contemporary art

    Opening the doors of the archaeological collections to contemporary art is one of the special features of the Lattara-musée Henri Prades archaeological site, which each year invites an artist to immerse themselves in the museum's permanent collection. The resulting exhibition establishes a fertile dialogue between the contemporary works of art, most of which were produced on this occasion, and those discovered during the archaeological digs.

    Making the living room bloom is the idea of gardening one's interior, of considering the domestic space as a living, evolving space of which everyone could be the author.

    The objects designed by Tiphaine Calmettes are inspired by floral and zoomorphic forms, which have been found in utilitarian objects since Antiquity. It's a way of seeing furniture as a form of companionship, a way of individualising what is commonly referred to as the inanimate. The installation is as reminiscent of experimental archaeology as it is of shops, but above all it is intended to be a place of welcome in which the public is invited to sit and spend a moment in the salon.
