The Princess Minnie de Beauvau Craon is hosting an exhibition of the enchanting and original creations of artist, Joy de Rohan Chabot, in the exceptional backdrop of the Château d’Haroué near Nancy, in Lorraine.
It is in this famous countryside palace that Joy de Rohan Chabot wanted to add another dimension to her art, and to express her talent with this first contemporary exterior and interior installation: l’Envolée.
120 steel butterflies (plain and patterned), made totally by hand, in many different sizes and varying shades of blue have taken over the facade of the Château – delicately placed on huge piles of wood, on the trees in the middle of the courtyard, in the park, and on the walls of the beautiful salons.
With this installation, Joy de Rohan Chabot wanted to pay tribute to the butterfly, a symbol of our childhood summers and of the anxiety that we may experience in the event of its disappearance.
The exhibition continues inside the Château where there will be thirty pieces made of painted glass, bronze, iron and other materials all inspired by nature in the salons.
