Installation of work of art Bann Maronèr (Fugitive Slave) Nathalie Maillot & Nelson Boyer

Sculpture/installation (iron, wire netting, cellulose, paint, polish, bronze) 2012

A monumental sculpture installed in the gardens of the museum, below the main house.

“An escaped slave among the vegetation, observing the estate of Madame Desbassayns. We wished to symbolise all the rebels who did not accept to be dominated by masters during their existence and who, in order to survive, decided to escape, the only possibility for those wishing to live as free men. The huge size of the work reflects the mental force of the escaped slaves.”
(Nathalie Maillot & Nelson Boyer)
