Jardin is a modest attempt to echo the words of Foucault, often quoted but no less important for that "The garden is the smallest part of the world and the whole world as the same time."

Jardins, whose title is intended as a sober reflection on the sheer diversity of the subject, considers both the history of garden art and the history of exhibitions on the theme, which has rarely been of interest to cultural institutions. If their presence in the museum seems rooted in contradiction, the link between museum and garden are actually quite close. As places of learning and pleasure that are born, grow and die, they are also spaces that visitors can roam around, at their own pace.
