Dialogues: Art Festival in Gasny coming soon
Galerie Roi Doré, in partnership with the Art-maniac platform, Wela Art Gallery and Association culturelle “Attitudes”, are pleased to invite you to the “Dialogues”, 1st edition of Art Festival in Gasny (Normandy, France). The exhibition will take place from November 5th ’till November 13th in a beautiful, medieval priory of Saint-Nicaise in the little Normand town of Gasny.
This collective exhibition, entitled “Dialogues”, presents the work of seven artists: Henri Bergami, Vincent Heguy, Dec, Benoît Dutour, Adam Kozik, Artur Majka, and Wela. It sets up the real dialogues between artists, places, and times.
On the one hand, it honors the artistic richness of seven very different personalities: each artist draws his inspiration from different sources, and each presents a different style. Their artistic baggage, techniques, and themes evoked separate them, the same as their origins and ages: young vs. experienced, French vs. Polish, emigrant vs. native, Parisian vs. provincial. However, their desire to express themselves through art and to engage in dialogue with the viewer brings them closer, thus setting up the real dialogue between their works.
On the other hand, these contemporary artists will have to confront a place with a long and charged history going back to a very distant past – the Benedictine priory of Saint-Nicaise was founded in 680 by Saint Quen then bishop of Rouen, on the legendary places of the martyrdom of Nicaise, first bishop of Rouen. Thus, another aspect of this dialogue evoked in the exhibition’s title is a dialogue between the past and the present.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of concerts and a conference on NFTs.
