The Fabuloserie was opened in 1983 by Alain Bourbonnais, in the barns of his country house in Dicy in the Yonne, to house his collection. It is not a museum as we could call it but a cabinet of curiosities – « la caverne d’Ali-Baba », as Michel Ragon says. A place of the imagination, of rediscovered childhood, où sont réunies des oeuvres d’art « hors les normes » (Art brut). Their creators do not come from art schools but rather from factories and fields. They have transcended their daily lives by realizing their wildest dreams with broken objects, old toys, wool, wire, driftwood… It is invention in freedom, a world where everything is surprising, unusual, strange and authentic.
