In this week's Arts in France, RFI's Rosslyn Hyams has a roaring time with Safarix at the Paris Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature - Museum of Hunting and Nature.


Housed in two centuries-old mansions in the Marais area, this often overlooked place of interest is drawing attention to itself with its latest exhibition Safari/Safarix.

Safari/Safarix is an exhibition for anyone who is wild about animals, has a sense of humour and isn't put off by stuffed game.

Eleven contemporary artists, revisit the Safari theme, and have a lot of fun doing it. Animal heads and bottoms poke out of walls and are some of the objects d'art which spark surprise and giggles.
