Photographic Exhibition - Marcel Chatenay - collection Y. Cornet
For the second time, Bouvet Ladubay will be hosting an exhibition curated and produced by the Municipal Archives of the City of Saumur, this year in partnership with the School of Art and the French Cities of Art and History. This summer, on the occasion of the Centennary of 1914, we propose a photographic journey through history named "Regards d'un poilu" - In the Eyes of a French Soldier.
In giving to the city of Saumur 886 stereoscopic stills of Marcel Chatenay, health officer during the Great War, the collector Yves Cornet wanted to draw attention to the richness of these images, whose subject is the daily life of a french soldier during WW1: how to take shelter, to find food, medicine and entertain nonetheless in an environment of suffering and desolation.
Over 100 enlarged modern prints will be exhibited in 7 rooms Bouvet -Ladubay Contemporary Art Center, a part will be displayed in 3D format. They will be accompanied by testimonials, excerpts from letters and diaries from the front.
