EXHIBITION "THE TRANSPORT OF FORCES
The museum exhibits an exceptional work by Fernand Léger: Le Transport des forces. Little known to the general public, it has gigantic dimensions (4.90m high and 8.70m long) and weighs almost 250 kg.
The aim of this work was to promote electricity and technological innovation, which have been gradually taking place in the daily lives of the French since the end of the 19th century. In a monumental composition with strong, colourful lines, Fernand Léger praises the fascinating process of transforming natural forces into electrical energy.

"Buried in a silence of decades without ever being exhibited, the work of Emile Theodore Frandsen (1902-1969) presents itself with the face of strangeness of a theatre abandoned after the last show. And this universe, which one enters with an astonished eye, reveals a whispered confession, a staged intimacy. Here, a curtain opens and parts; elsewhere, another closes. Amongst the drama and the tumult, amongst the gaiety and the drunkenness, masks and costumed characters - Harlequin or Pierrot - of a comedy, a drama and a tragedy in turn parade by. Mikaël Faujour, "Emile Théodore Frandsen" (Ed. Lelivredart)
