La Fabuloserie, which opened in 1983 to the public , La Fabuloserie est un lieu imaginé et conçu par l’architecte Alain Bourbonnais pour abriter sa collection “art hors-les-normes”. This appellation was suggested to Alain Bourbonnais by Jean Dubuffet, who wanted the name of “art brut” to be reserved for his own collection. Elle désigne des productions insolites réalisées par des autodidactes.
After opening a gallery, the Atelier Jacob, in Paris 1972 and 1982, l’Atelier Jacob, Alain Bourbonnais decided to create, with his wife Caroline, a museum he called "La Fabuloserie".It is composed of a “museum-house” in which over a thousand works are exhibited, ranging from the drawings by Yanko Domsic to the “bourrages” (characters made of stuffed body stockings) by Francis Marshall, and the amazing series of “Turbulents” by Alain Bourbonnais himself. An open-air museum, called “the inhabited garden”, displays the sculptures of “habitants-paysagistes” (inhabitants/landscape-artists): : Camille Vidal, Jules Damloup, , Jean Bertholle’s weather vanes and Petit Pierre with his astonishing “manège” (merry-go-round).
