Collectif Prisme: Painting the Odyssey

4 to 12 June

Freely inspired by the Odyssey, each of the 5 painters depicts her vision of Ulysses’ wandering and journey. The art of storytelling and therefore the art of painting defy death in order to express life.

Chantal Boullet

Stronger than any female solicitation, Penelope exerts an irresistible attraction on Ulysses that motivates his return home.

Catherine Chesneau

In response to Odysseus’ struggles and wanderings over a period of twenty years, Homer shows Penelope’s valour and loyalty: Penelope, stable and inventive, is as heroic as Odysseus!

Martine Lépine

Where can she find the courage to face storms, monsters and magicians? For Ulysses, is the hope of an island, of a home port, the secret of survival?

Isabelle Pastré

Like Ulysses, migrants today cross the Mediterranean at the risk of their lives; they give in to the sirens of the West…

Sylvie Puaud

The body of Ulysses, powerful and combative, always in tension in the face of the unleashed elements and divine dictates, is the site of a violence that crescendos until the return to Ithaca!
