Works by internationally renowned artists such as Maurizio Cattelan, Marlene Dumas, Bertrand Lavier, Thomas Schütte or Thomas Houseago, and emerging ones like Vincent Gicquel and Lucas Arruda, led visitors into intimately experiencing the dark underside of humanity.Sculptures, paintings and videos stood up in the face of wars, working conditions, colonisation but also individual and spiritual crises. More metaphysically, the exhibition posed the question of fatality. Boy with Frog dealt with the destiny of men and women and ways of dealing with it, whether through struggle, criticism or humour.
Some of the works had never been shown before. Exhibiting them in the Couvent des Jacobins, a magnificent restored medieval ruin, allowed them to fully express their power. This international exhibition also marked François Pinault's commitment to new venues for contemporary art and to Breton heritage.
