“ Freedom is born, at night, anywhere, in a hole in a wall, on the path of ice wind. ” René Char

(Translate from French to English)


For its cultural return, the Bullukian Foundation is hosting a major monographic exhibition by the artist François Réau, who pursues his exploration of drawing with the presentation of unique art works, often deployed in installations and which question our relationship to the landscape and our perception of time.

Through this exhibition, François Réau wished to pay tribute to the figure of the great poet and resistant René Char and his radical writing, sometimes abrupt but always striking; poetry then becomes the path of a sensitive proposal that oscillates between presence and absence.

The artist, who invokes the spirit of places in his projects to better reveal them, is particularly interested in the textile history of the city of Lyon, while engaging in an unprecedented with a regional company La Trudine, whose fabric production combines historical know-how and latest generation printing techniques. François Réau’s experience of drawing, made with meticulous observation, regularity and repeated gestures, is here reinvented to unfold and emancipate itself on a life-size fabric, like a new symbolic space. The pattern replaces the fine line of the pencil and the effects of unexpected gradients vibrating in contact with the material allow a new narration which makes visible unexplored phenomena.
