Domaine du Muy

muy

Located near Saint Tropez in South of France, the Domaine du Muy is a sculpture park founded in 2014 by Jean-Gabriel Mitterrand.
The park presents 40 or so large format works that dramatically interact with the lush vegetation and rugged terrain of the park. Very different from a French formal garden, the magnificent environment of the Domaine du Muy is characterized by its wild, untamed nature to which many of the works form a striking juxtaposition.
The sculptures invest the site like a species of strange, innovative constructions, artificial structures, or abandoned objects, proof of human presence in a place where it is least expected.
Colonizing the park and the forest, the works may surprise visitors by their relationship to the surrounding environment: at once incongruous yet natural. A game of contrasts between constructed works and the landscape…
Within the natural setting of the Domaine du Muy, the artworks appear artificial and out of place, thereby marking their own territory and revealing a certain facet of human nature: the conquest of new spaces.
