The DUPON PHIDAP Space and the National Monuments Center present the photographs of the Château de Ferney-Voltaire, historical residence of the philosopher, created by Patrick Tourneboeuf, co-founder of the Tendance Floue collective.
This exhibition can be seen as a faithful transcript of the place where Voltaire lived and received all the celebrities of the Age of Enlightenment. The castle, after a long restoration, has finally been opened to the public and recently inaugurated by the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron.
Patrick Tourneboeuf has followed the work and offers us here a delicate vision of this place steeped in history. His framing and his lights are a reference, as during his follow-up of the restorations of the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais in Paris, also with this important series of monumental horses acquired by many public and private collections.
The DUPON PHIDAP Space is transformed for the occasion into a place not only of presentation but also of sale of artistic photographs. We would like to particularly thank Anne Lesage and Laurent Bergeot of the National Monuments Center for their unfailing support for the implementation of this exhibition.
