La chambre des peluches
The association of the Friends of the Maison des Enfants de l'Assistance Publique et des Nourrices du Morvan, members of the Community of Municipalities of the Great Lakes of Morvan and the Morvan Regional Nature Park have initiated the project of a House dedicated to the care of the children of the Assistance Publique in Morvan and to the theme of Morvan nannies who breastfed children from bourgeois and aristocratic families from Paris to the Second Kingdom. In this context, they wanted to commission three works for three guest rooms associated with la Maison, in order to live a unique sensory and emotional experience. Each room is an independent building in the garden of la Maison and has been entrusted to a specific artist : Marc-Camille Chaimowicz, Cécile Maulini and Nadia Wallis.
Nadia Wallis' work uses pastel drawings of animals or plush characters with an aesthetic that is between tenderness and anxiety that is not without "kinship" with the world of Anglo-Saxon symbolism, including in its illustrative component.
