The following text is quoted from wikipedia:
"The Abode of Chaos (French: Demeure du Chaos) is a Museum of Contemporary Art located in Saint-Romain-au-Mont-d'Or, a small town in the vicinity of Lyon, France. It is a living sum of more than 2,500 artworks, performed by many different artists and Thierry Ehrmann, CEO of Groupe Serveur, the holding of art quotation company Artprice.
The artwork is based around the transformation of Ehrmann's 17th century home into a replica war zone, at contrast with the peaceful village in which it is located. The Abode of Chaos has been the subject of an ongoing lawsuit from the local mayor's office. Ehrmann has been ordered to pay a fine for unauthorised construction under town planning laws but has not been ordered to restore his home to its original condition. Today he is condemned by the Court of Cassation, France's highest court : he has to recondition his outer walls or pay a compensation."
