Welcome to the Cristel Éditeur d’Art Centre
Dedicated to modern art and contemporary art, the Cristel Éditeur d’Art Centre organizes four great annual exhibitions in a retail and exhibition hall
in Saint-Malo (Rocabey), close to the beach Plage du Sillon, between the train station and the historical walled city.
The current exhibition shows twelve engraving from the drawings of the modern artist Salvador Dalí and more than forty animal bronzes by Damien Colcombet.
Franco Salas-Borquez’s works on the ocean, Bédouin‘s little egret
and Anne Limbour’s works made with feathers are also always presented.
from 8 July 2022 to 7 October 2023
By whom or by what should one begin when introducing “Bestiaires”, thirty-fourth rendezvous organized by the Centre Cristel Éditeur d’Art in Saint-Malo? By Salvador Dalí, the worldwide genius born in Figueras in 1904? Or by Damien Colcombet, a sculptor from Lyon with roots in Bretagne — he was born in Rennes in 1967—, who is the center of attention of this exhibition, for the fourth time since 2017? Unless we choose to introduce our subject by what unites both creators : the bestiaire.
Cristel Éditeur d’Art published the “real” “Regarde…”, embellished with gouaches and documents never seen, never read, in a limited edition of 100 copies.
The box of “Colette and Méheut. The Secrets of “Regarde”…” brings together:
– a 44-page text containing unpublished documents on the genesis of the book,
– the reproduction of Colette’s manuscript (sixteen pages),
– the reproduction of “Regarde…” published in 1929
– 20 original prints in colors printed in facsimile by the art studio Clot, Bramsen & Georges, in Paris, on large pure rag paper.
