In order to celebrate the year of 2020/2021 dedicated to comics and their authors, the Bullukian Foundation invites the artists Edmond Baudoin, Nicolas de Crécy and Jochen Gerner to share their visions of travel and itinerancy, through the presentation of drawings, original comic strips, watercolors and books.
Going through the exhibition À la croisée des Chemins, is to draw freely from the drawing while assuming the power of contrasts, it is to take graphic turns to slide from one representation to another and always, to travel the world for the better recompose it.
Neat architectures and ghosts in shimmering colours for Nicolas de Crécy, automatic compositions with stylized and methodical lines by Jochen Gerner, or sensitive images saturated with Indian ink in Edmond Baudoin’s ; the drawings mingle and collide but the writing is always virtuoso.
We then walk among moving landscapes, mosaics of memories gathered here as if to gradually sketch the outlines of a memory that already belongs to the past, but whose sensations remain indelible.
On chemine alors parmi des paysages en mouvement, mosaïques de souvenirs rassemblés ici comme pour esquisser progressivement les contours d’une mémoire qui appartient déjà au passé, mais dont les sensations demeurent indélébiles.
