The installation Cuisine Tranquille reproduces a traditional kitchen showroom. The standard classical modes of the showroom are modified to collate a set of innovative objects and functional furniture (‘unique items available for custom application’). The kitchen is designed for a fictional couple, the Adam and Eve of a modern advertising narrative. The sculptural showrooms of Regis Jocteur Monrozier are surprising playlets, funny and generous, sitting between a 3D strip cartoon and the retouched chic of an early 80s publicity photo. Louis Clais creates decorative items, sculptures, prototypes and designs built like ‘a wild garden in which young shoots and the old oaks live together’.
