/ 021821

The Frac des Pays de la Loire maintains its actions in schools during this period of closure of cultural places, in agreement with its partners and in compliance with the health protocol.

Masked faces, insistent or elusive glances, closed eyes or on the contrary, which do not want to close … the works chosen for this exhibition form a set of strange portraits. The exhibition takes its title from a work by Italian artist, author and designer Bruno Munari. Left for consultation and manipulation, the book is a set of colored cardboard sheets, where black ink lines and three holes are enough to draw a mask. Colors and lines, geometric, wavy, repetitive, sinuous, rigid, express different emotions and intentions. The artist invites us to wear them, to experience the gaze. through these colored papers, the viewer is hidden as much as he reveals himself.

Let’s look each other in the eye.
We’re all different.
(…) if we see through the eyes of another person, we understand each other better.
The animals look each other in the eyes.
Apart from moles

This exhibition is produced as part of the actions of the Frac in the direction of the Loire-atlantique colleges. The partnership with the Collège Le Galinet is carried out with Ms. Sophie Jahn, professor of plastic arts, and involves her students in setting up the exhibition and in mediating around the works.
