Les soirées d'Albertine

The gallery is pleased to present the latest series by Katrien de Blauwer, “Les soirées d’Albertine”, a set of 8 works inspired by Proust and the character of Albertine and accompanied by fragments of texts by Albertine Sarrazin and from the artist’s personal notes. Katrien de Blauwer, whose work has been attached to the female figure since its beginning, reveals here another face of this controversial writer. Built around original autobiographical texts, Katrien de Blauwer paints a portrait of a lonely woman, in pursuit with the absolute, but confined by the walls of a society which expected a different future for her.
