Exhibition - Resilience

From 14/02/2017 to 26/03/2017 - CPI : 14/02/2017

The subject in the air of the time was popularised by the ethologist, neuropsychiatrist and psychoanalyst Boris Cyrulnik (Bordeaux, 1937) in his book “Un merveilleux malheur”, in which he defends the idea that misfortune is not destiny, that nothing is irrevocably set in stone, that it is always possible to nd a way out. This line of thought stems from Cyrulnik’s wonder ‘in the presence of these children who have managed to triumph over immense di culties and made a life for themselves against all the odds [...] There is a word that helps to organise our way of understanding the mystery of those who have achieved this. That word is “resilience”, in the sense of the ability to succeed, to live and develop in spite of adversity.’ (B.C.) From the Latin resilire (to spring back), the term refers to an individual’s capacity to cope psychically with life’s trials. It is, in the words of the gallerist, ‘the ability to bounce back after a setback, a trauma, physical or mental su ering. It is to emerge from the anguish of a trauma, to transcend it and transform it into positive, constructive and creative energy.’ This may take the form of art, culture and creativity. Dialogue, exchange and open-mindedness are the keys to this transcendence, which can be expressed through music, the visual and applied arts, dance, writing ... Esther Verhaeghe de Naeyer proposes to bring together a panel of artists who use art as a medium of resilience which enables them to exorcise adversity, to get out of the rut and change perspective in order to move on. In externalising their su ering, they nd the strength to go forward, to make peace and to enter into communication and resonance with others. This a ords tremendous hope to those who, rather than ee from danger – which is omnipresent in our society – or to be reduced to the condition of victim are willing to develop the tools to ght and “live with” it. Because it provides a response to our anxieties, the resilience envisaged by means of art is something that is very close to the heart of the gallerist, who has always had a predilection for artists and works that display a high degree of sensitivity. This penchant is part of the identity of her gallery, whose exhibitions speci cally centre on creators who explore emotion, the psyche, the unconscious ... and artists who are ‘beyond categories’, in some cases outsiders or marginal, fringe gures.Her aim is to show that “art, in awakening us to otherness, can comfort us in our paradoxes of being alive, su ering and happy, all in one”. By presenting some of the multiple approaches adopted by artists of resilience, her idea is to build bridges between creators, spectators and social scientists, and to forge links between beings and all things towards universal love.
