"D'après maquettes : it is the time of the preparatory study and the projection. But also the time afterwards, when the years bring back the first intentions. The models have multiple and precious uses for constructing the he exhibition, they are tools of design, imagination and verification. Light in their handling, they involve the gaze, the hand and the whole body, multiplying the points of view.

When they are preserved, they become world-objects open to appropriation. The model is at the heart of artistic practices which take up its codes and reinvent its function. It then becomes a work, an accessory for photographic or performative staging or even an exhibition. The model activates a mental part which involves the spectator in the development of fictions.

It is also a space for manipulating gazes through effects of illusion, distortion and close-ups, sometimes testing the forms of perception. Artists, architects, scenographers, historians and theorists share here their practices, their intuitions and their research based on models.
