To mark the anniversary, thirty set artists, as well as CharlElie Couture and street artist C215, were invited to create a work on Georges-Brassens. On Saturday, June 25, at 10:30 a.m., the show will feature music.
Georges Brassens died on October 29, 1981. He was buried two days later, on October 31, in Le Pai Cemetery. Ten years later, on October 31, 1991, the Brassens space was inaugurated. So he celebrated his thirtieth birthday in 2021, a year especially rich in Brassen events because it was the centenary year of the birth of a child in the country.
So this 2022 museum dedicated to the singer will extinguish his thirty candles. On this occasion, the museum team decided to bring together thirty sets of old and new generation artists in the same exhibition, not to mention singer and artist Charlie Couture and street artist C215, a fresco, called The Thinker adorns a facade. At Rue des Députés
Each of these creators presented their view of man, his artistic and poetic creations according to two limitations: a monochromatic work and an imposed 70 x 50 layout. Adaptive company Gedeas has provided a sensitive visual work that will raise public awareness about visual disabilities. The show will open this Saturday, June 25 at 10:30 a.m. followed by a set by DJ Guy Lamo.
“A magical place”
In the late 1980’s, under orders from Yves Merchand, the idea arose to create a place dedicated to Brasen on municipal land, opposite the Le Pai cemetery where the singer was buried. The name of Regin Monpace, who died in 2021, is associated with this story. An art historian, a doctoral holder, and from Setois, he then left the Paul-Valerie Museum and headed for the Brassens space. He will stay there for 23 years.
Along with Barbara, Brassens was “his greatest passion” and he considered her “one of the great poets of the 20th century.” And the space dedicated to the singer became his leadership, “a beautiful story of friendship … with Brasens’ relatives: Papchen, his partner; Jose Strobants, his photographer; Sophie Duvarnay his governess; ; Jean Corporan, daughter of his other great childhood friend Henry Delpunt … I, I’m a little younger than the Brassens’ group, “Rezin Monpace announced at his retirement from Nunfree in 2014.
And again: “It’s a rare place to dedicate yourself entirely to a singer and a poet. Bringing the Bracens space, succeeding in attracting so many people each year, was a challenge. Not distorted. All his relatives recognized themselves in space. There is a magical side here. ” Catherine Mother replaces Cagen in Nicola Casagon, and, since February 2021, Sylvie Raffard Brassens has been in charge of space.
That will be the exhibition of artists
They witness the incredible vitality of the old or new generation and all set art scene. The new exhibitions at Bracens Space include Amোনnalিসs, Barrandon, Batista, Beascamano, Bosque, Cervera, Chagniot, Claudius, Robert Combas, Cosentino, Della Flora, Depos, Harvey de Rosa, Dombres, Duranito, Curano, Jean-Franসois, Jean-Franসois, Laou, Laroche-Joubert, Lhermet, Lith, Mancione, Maye, Novika Sobierajski, Parant, Reka, Rebelsmuge, Topolino and Alain Zarouati.
Its success is undeniable, and the space is one of the most visited cultural sites, including the Paul-Valerie Museum and the Miami. It is visited by 45,000 to 50,000 visitors every year. In 2021, the centennial year dropped to six months from the opening, reaching 37,000, in 2019 47,000. “He is the only musician and poet who has a place where his memory is still alive and it is very important to people here, underlining Sylvie Rafford. It looks like he really didn’t die.”
The Espace Brassens also welcome many children and young people (schools or others) from all over the Thau Basin, as well as those with disabilities. “We are the first in France to translate all our rooms into LSF,” the director continued. He says he is full of respect for Brassens, who was a “hard worker.” “Its composition was goldsmith but its use of slander appeals to a wide audience and to all generations.” The use of the audio guide allows “a very close discovery of Brassens. It is his voice that comes with the visit. Since its opening, the place has been an avant-garde and innovative place, tradition but very lively.”
