Céleste Boursier-Mougenot's work arises following his experience as a composer from 1985 to 1994. At that point, the artist embarked on giving an autonomous form to his music through the creation of installations. In 2015 he is representing France at the Venice Biennale, designing the exhibition 'rêvolutions'. Here he revives our taste for the marvels of mannerist Italian gardens, just as he reaffirms his contemporary status, indicating an underlying political dimension. Seizing systems of control over living creatures and their movements in order to compose a poetic work where the attentive human can inhabit spaces of liberty and deviant beauty.
