  • THE NEW MUSÉE RODIN

    In the words of Catherine Chevillot, Conservateur général, Director of the Musée Rodin:

     

    "Exhibiting sculpture, giving it its rightful place, allowing the public to fully appreciate this particular way of apprehending the world was, and still is, the goal of the Musée Rodin, of its scientific and cultural policy, and even of its business model. In our modern age of dematerialised images and virtual or “augmented” reality, we tend to neglect direct confrontation with material objects and forms. By its very nature, sculpture cannot be reduced to an image alone: it takes time to appreciate its various facets, to observe it in changing lights... Whether it bears the marks of the sculptor’s hand or the traces of his research into volume, sculpture is essentially format, material, mass, colour... Perhaps today’s viewer needs such confrontations of scale, tangible appearances and palpable objects to finally stop and look, recover an awareness of the self and of its physical limits in real space."
