Aardman: Art That Takes Shape - Exhibition Catalogue


  • Official exhibition catalogue.
  • Text in both French and English.

Created by the Art Ludique-Le Musée team, in close collaboration with the award-winning creators and producers of the celebrated British studio, this exhibition, a worldwide premiere, dedicated to the Art of Aardman will present over 50 authentic film characters and sets, true masterpieces of sculpture lit by the artists themselves.

From Wallace's cracking contraptions, passing through Gromit's famous vegetable garden, to the sets of Shaun the Sheep The Movie, the flying machine from Chicken Run or the fabulous 5 metre tall Pirates' galleon, these spectacular artworks will pay a veritable homage to the artistic genius of the sculptors that animate the clay creatures image by image.

Over 350 concept drawings, character and background studies, watercolours, and storyboards will complete this exceptional exhibition, where one can even discover Nick Park's sketchbook as a student, containing the first drawings of Wallace and Gromit, never before seen by the public.
