"In Case of Emergency, Drink Waterbed"
October 15 - November 14, 2020
Opening Thursday 15 October from 3 - 8pm
Curated by Louis Lefebvre
"I took great pleasure in setting up this exhibition: "In case of emergency, drink waterbed. " It was also a first in a 33-year career! Indeed, because of the covid 19 crisis, it was impossible for me to travel, meet the artists or see the works. The virtual has become reality, by Zoom, Instagram and WhatsApp, confinement requires! The theme of this exhibition has as a common denominator: the pandemic, not by the subject but by what it inspired or what it made feel to the 14 artists present. Their fears, their joys, their desires, their dreams or their nightmares and of course and above all: their hopes. “In case of emergency, drink water bed” brings together 14 artists aged 10 to 78. As you will discover, this is an exhibition synonymous with cheerfulness, colors, love and hope. We could sum it up and conclude with this famous sentence from Gustave Flaubert: "Love is a spring plant that perfumes everything with its hope, even the ruins on which it clings."
