"Rappels en parallèle" – Cécile Bart

Exhibition from 13 May to 1st October 2023

The Bouvet Ladubay Contemporary Art Center presents, from May 13 to October 1st, "Rappels en parallèle" (Reminders in parallel), an exhibition that Cécile Bart has conceived as a journey in colour and movement.

Cécile Bart has designed an exhibition full of repeats and echoes, similarly to a garden with uneven plots, ranging from the vegetable patch to the tree stratum, and where certain plants would be found from place to place. A way of inhabiting a complex space, of taking the measure of its orientations, of going through it with its scansions and sequences.

A metaphor, perhaps, of her belonging and her perception of the world and nature.

The whole exhibition is made up of reminders, those in absentia, which summon up the memory of other works by the artist, and those in praesentia, which form a whole game of ricochets from room to room. More modest works, scattered here and there, reinforce these references: a Mini Farandole, Moods (pastels on paper, arranged on north-facing walls), and Films (paintings/collage or photographic posters, arranged on walls facing South). Memory.

The idea behind the creation of the Art Centre

centre-d-art-contemporain centre-d-Art-de-Nuit---Sophie-Boursier GALERIE-NUIT Hypercube2
The idea behind the creation of the Art Centre is to revive the pleasures and the spirit of the Renaissance right in the very heart of the Loire Valley.
Officially opened in 1992 under the patronage of Gonzague St Bris, a French writer and journalist, and with Benoît Lemercier as Artistic Director, there are nine exhibition rooms and a lobby-library, covering almost 800m2 (8,600 sq. ft).
"We have contributed, modestly but with enthusiasm, to opening up the world of contemporary art to both the local population and to visiting tourists," says Benoît Lemercier. "The wide range of exhibitions we program means that a visitor can confront a work directly, can love it or not, in any case to refine one's own taste and thoughts."
