Royal Garden is an online extension of Crédac’s artistic project. Borrowing its title from the futuristic restaurant directed by Jacques Tati in Playtime, Royal Garden is a shaggy artistic project, a place for the production of multidisciplinary meaning, an exquisite critical, theoretical and artistic corpse.
Royal Garden had 10 seasons between 2008 and 2018.
The sixth installment of Royal Garden is designed as a prolongation of The Registry of Promise, a cycle of four shows developed by Chris Sharp and jointly mounted by four art venues in Europe in 2014-2015. All of the artists who took part in the shows, along with the four venues’ directors who worked together to make this undertaking a reality, were each asked to come up with an entirely new intervention echoing the cycle, and have thus created an open and evolving archive like the “Registry of Promise” that lies at the heart of the four exhibitions.
Royal Garden is made possible through support from the Region Ile-de-France.
