Opened in 2011, the Villa Datris Foundation has already hosted five big exhibitions with a contemporary sculpture theme; its core domain. As a natural extension to this approach, Danièle Kapel-Marcovici and Tristan Fourtine have built up the Villa Datris Foundation collection by acquiring a number of artworks from these exhibition, all selected with thought and passion.

This year, the exhibit Sharing Sculpture brings together a selection of artwork from the Villa Datris Foundation collection which sum up five years of discovery and sharing. The Villa Datris Foundation’s jubilant spirit can be experienced to the full through the underlying trends of its artistic choices, its social commitments and especially its philosophy of sharing art; a real “irrigation of culture”.

100 artworks exhibited In a scenography created by Laure Dezeuze and Jules Fourtine, the Sharing Sculpture exhibition presents around a hundred works in total of which twenty five are displayed outside in the garden. The main purpose of the exhibition is to highlight the Villa Datris Foundation as a reflection of the major artistic movements that have marked contemporary art from the 20th century until today. Sharing Sculpture starts in the fifties with kinetic and optic art by Yaacov Agam and Jesús-Rafael Soto, from geometric abstraction, one of the main movements presented in the collection, in particular by François Morellet, to new realism by Niki de Saint-Phalle and artwork from more contemporary artists such as Joana Vasconcelos and Jaume Plensa.

This year’s novelty is the discovery and focus on the work of three young artists: Caroline Tapernoux, Laurent Perbos et Alexis Hayère. With Sharing Sculpture the Villa Datris Foundation offers a new way of interpreting artistic choices and is an invitation to experience new visual challenges which never fail to surprise and amaze.

La Fondation Villa Datris offre un cadre unique et convivial pour la découverte de la sculpture contemporaine, avec un espace total d’exposition de 500 m² sur quatre niveaux, complété par le parcours de sculptures présentées dans le jardin. Depuis sa création, la Fondation Villa Datris a pour vocation de s’adresser à un large public, toujours vivante et accessible, ludique et animée, surprenante et joyeuse.
