On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the french artist Bernard Mandeville (1921 – 2020), Dagmar Weste, as part of the art project PASSAGE, shows works by the artist from the 80s and 90s, consisting mainly of collages as well as works in mixed techniques (painting, drawing and collage). The exhibition is under the patronage of the Institut Français in Bonn. The Vice-President of the German-French Society Bonn/Rhein-Sieg, Sylvie Tyralla-Noel, is dedicated to the 42 poets who wrote poems for the artist and his collages in the 80s and will also resurrect a contemporary image of the artistic scene in Paris at that time. Mandeville kept a close relationship with literature and poetry in particular. “Is there a poem this morning?” This question, often asked by the painter in 1976 and 1977, is the idea of Jean-Yves Montagu, poet, journalist and neighbor, who cherished Mandeville’s painting and wrote a poem inspired by his pictorial works.
