Gerard Garouste painting is inhabited by history and stories, by biblical characters and talmudic writings inspired by his readings and his association with jewish intellectuals, especially those who have lived at Chaumargeais near Chambon during the war and who have influenced great thinkers like Emmanuel Lévinas. After the exhbition on the intellectuals presented in summer 2018, the Lieu de Mémoire, offers to its visitors another point of view upon the renewal of jewish intellectuals born on this land at the end of the war.
This Gerard Garoust exhibition, proposes a journey between paintings and biblical texts, between art and history.
Born in 1946 in Paris, Gérard Garouste lives and works in Paris and Normandy. He is one of the leading figures in French art. As both painter and sculptor, he is obsessed by the origins of our culture, myths and the legacy left us by the old masters. His own life is the springboard for his work on ‘dismantling images and words’ and his fascination with the questions of origins, time and transmission. His paintings are born of associations of ideas. Now unsettling, now joyful, they teem with animals, some of them fantastical, and a cast of different characters. His sources range from the Bible to popular culture and literary greats, from Cervantes to Rabelais.
