From 15 april to 17 december 2023
In an exhibition space committed to contemporary sculpture and through the artworks of the Villa Datris Foundation, Toucher Terre brings together more than 50 ceramic artworks by French and international artists on the theme of Earth.
The discovery of the material plunges us into a primitive forest sheltering various animal and plant species—creatures inspired by nature, mythology and folktales.
From the bowels of the Earth as archaeological witness of our civilization, to the intimacy of the workshop where accident/control, chance/luck reign, ceramics reveals its strengths and weaknesses.

For each of its exhibitions, the Espace Monte-Cristo offers visiting tools specially designed to explore the theme and the works in a playful, educational and sensory way: material library, documentary space, game booklet.
