A Beautiful Summer Movie

The film A beautiful summer by French director Pierre Creton is presented in partnership with the Corkin Gallery as part of the exhibition Maisons/Ateliers by artist Vincent Barré. The screening will be accompanied by an interview with the sculptor.

Corkin Gallery presents Maisons/Ateliers, an exhibition of bronze sculpture and works on paper by French artist Vincent Barré. Occupying varied realms of the arts, from architecture to film-making, Vincent Barré has maintained a central presence in the French cultural scene for over 50 years. Barré began his career as an architect in 1974, studying under the famed architect Louis Kahn. Pivoting to sculpture in 1982, Barré began working on wood and metal constructions that respond to architecture and landscape. His large-scale cast iron and bronze sculptures can be found in the public and private spaces of France, Germany and China.

The making of a wax sculpture in the exhibition Maisons/Ateliers is featured in Le bel été (A Beautiful Summer) - a film by Pierre Creton, with the participation of Barré, his partner in life and art. The film, inspired by their own experiences, portrays stories of community, love and sensuality in the lives of the inhabitants of a small village in Normandy that receives teenaged African immigrants.
