Latifa Echakhch: Le jardin Mécanique

“Invited by Célia Bernasconi, chief curator of the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, to create an exhibition at the Villa Sauber, Echakhch chose to revisit the principality’s exceptional heritage of masterpieces in the art of illusion. She explored the NMNM’s collections, Madame de Galéa’s scenery models and automatons, as well as touching postcards of fake rocks and fake wood in the Jardin Exotique. The result is a subtle and accurate interpretation of anonymous voices that had fallen silent but now sing softly again under her direction, in a garden that is very much her own.”
Michel Racine

Published in collaboration with the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, this book guides the reader through the discovery of Latifa Echakhch’s jardin mécanique, her latest exhibition at the Monegasque institution. A collection of visual and written essays, the publication explores the artist’s take on the museum’s collection of automatons and set models, as well as on the historical representations of the Exotic Garden of Monaco, through the form of a flipbook, translating on the page the motion of the five video works specifically produced for the exhibition.
