Collection Charlotte Zander
1January 17 to August 26, 2011
La Halle Saint Pierre hosting from 17 January to 26 August 2011 part of the collection of Charlotte Zander. Housed in the castle of Bönnigheim, Germany, this collection rich and unique works 4000, dedicated to outsider art, is historic. Indeed, it collects a large number of designers crazy, naive, visionary, autodidacts of any kind which are taxed on the stage of modern art and aesthetics were upset. This collection is also a pioneer in her mind as she worked to defend and celebrate, beyond the categories of art brut, naive art and art singular, this large family of marginal creators, who invented revolutionary ways of thinking and painting.
Among the 49 artists in the exhibition Wölfli, Carlo, Madge Gill, Lesage, Crépin, Walla or Scottie Wilson are considered the classics of art brut or Bauchant and Rousseau as the undisputed masters of naïve art. Beside them, Bill Traylor, Boix-Vives, Wallis and Seraphine de Senlis just make such questionable borders offering us fascinating stories of creation inspired and inventive. The exhibition will also be an opportunity to fully explore three artists in the Collection Charlotte Zander but still unknown in France: Bosilj and Sekulic and enigmatic Schröder-Sonnenstern whose visions unheard however, have attracted the attention of the Surrealists.
