“Who are you, Peter ?”: the question that opens the 13th exhibition at the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton invites the visitor to explore a fantastical land in which childhood and creation converse with, inspire and galvanise each other.

Peter Pan is the boy who refuses to grow up. He lives in childhood as if it were a kind of utopia: without worrying about the impossible, limits or destiny. His imagination is his most loyal ally, nourishing the inexhaustible stream of adventuresin which he is always the hero. From the pen of the Scotsman James Matthew Barrie in 1904, Peter Pan has become a contemporary myth, a symbol of the eternal child. His genius has recently been reduced to a syndrome: Peter Pan syndrome is said to describe people running away from their adult responsibilities. But is Peter Pan characterised by the creation of unprecedented worlds?
