The Little Prince is a mysterious and familiar being, so much he accompanies us, all as we are, with his poetry and his moving gaze on the world and the things of this world.Saint Exupéry knew how to give him a body, an image, a form, both possible and impossible at the same time. His Little Prince is, and yet will never be real if it is not in our hearts and our minds.
The first chapter of this tale tells about the meeting of the broken-down, not to say lost, aviator in the sandy ocean of the Saharan desert. The Little Prince arises and, with themost natural way to imagine, but insistently at the same time, ask the pilot to draw a sheep for him. It’s only on the fourth try, renunciation and abandonment, that the child rejoices with happiness at the design of a box pierced with ventilation holes and the “not so small sheep” it contains.
Drawing is the support for our imagination. Maybe even more than painting because it is faster, often lighter, sometimes more spontaneous, it is believed. Anyway, there seems more immediately affordable and seizable as more modest. No doubt this is because we have all scribbled, colored, constructed figures on the surface of a paper sheet, or simply invaded the space of this one of lines that intersect like abstractions. In short, drawing is familiar to us, even if for many years, sometimes decades, we have abandoned the idea to other hands deemed more skilled or more capable to accomplish the task.
This exhibition shows drawings, and only drawings. These are the works of Edi Dubien, Cyril Duret, Laurent Goumarre, Suzanne Husky, Kris Knight, Guillaume Linard-Osorio, Bernard Quesniaux, Guillaume Talbi.
Each artist has his own trait, his way, his identity. Each artist has their own universe. Their confrontation, or rather their cohabitation, is the fruit of our will. This will meets our interests, our pleasures, our desires. But also, and above all, in our eyes, which not stopping at the surface of the lines, they can see, perhaps, the sheep contained in transport boxes and elephants swallowed by gluttonous boas.This exhibition invites you to rediscover your Little Prince eyes and the happy pleasure of living, feeling and sharing.
