An imaginary museum of Playmobil®

Photographs by Richard Unglik

Exhibition from 7 February to 25 May 2014

THE EXHIBITION IN PICTURES... and visited by a class of primary school of Villeneuve 

The French photographer and film maker Richard Unglik has taken History of Art’s great works and made Playmobil® scenarios out of them – the Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Guernica, etc. He brings the famous figurines to life by dressing them in costumes and accessories taken from the famous paintings. Once he has carefully photographed each element, he uses graphics software to complete the reconstitution. The twenty large format images of this imaginary museum are on view in the Hall of Coats-of-Arms.

Young, and older visitors too, will also enjoy seeing the three giant models made with real Playmobil® toys in the Anken Room: a fortified castle and two Swiss panoramas made Bruno Peeters, a Belgian also known by his pseudonym Brubil.

On Sundays at 15:15, dated from April: unusual tour of the castle by a guide in medieval costume!


Exhibition available during the Castle opening times.
