More on New Wine, Old Skins

Harry Bellet's article (Joël Kermarrec, prophète diabolique du surréalisme, August 23) for Le Monde provides the latest example in my ad hoc series on exhibits of new art in old places (see Konrad Loder on August 30 and Past Meets Future on August 13). This one is on display in the crypt of the Abbey of Mont-Saint-Michel (yes, that Mont-Saint-Michel), part of an exhibit called Méditations, open until September 11. The four-part installation by Belgo-French surrealist artist Joël Kermarrec in the crypt is accompanied by a recording of a new musical work by Laurent Martin for flutes, violin, trumpet, and trombone, called Sept chemins de Joël (Joël's seven paths), dedicated to Kermarrec. I'm not having any luck finding images of the show or any more information.

If you want to see some recent work by Kermarrec, he had this show of drawings, Comme une autre place qui serait la mienne (Like another place that is supposedly mine), in 2003, at the Galerie Baudoin Lebon in Paris. He teaches art at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
