Profonde Intuition (Deep Intuition)
Résurgence is the autumn cultural event of the community of communes Causses and Dordogne Valley (Cauvaldor). Each year, the event is inspired by local heritage or a personality who has marked the recent history of the territory. Forged around partnerships, Résurgence is becoming more and more widespread and aims to allow all audiences to discover an aspect of the territory from a new angle.
Inspired by the photographs on glass plates from the La Forge collection and their testimonies on the life and discoveries of Armand Viré and his colleagues, the exhibition Profonde Intuition invites you to plunge into the depths of the earth, into the mineral and ancient worlds in search of the feelings that animate us, thanks to a selection of works by contemporary artists and collector's items.
The latter will be particularly highlighted in a reconstruction space inspired by the office of Armand Viré. Seeing all these images of caves, of gaping holes in Nature, of men confronted with an exciting unknown, one cannot help but imagine oneself in their place. What could they have felt? Some say that it is like a shock in love: a discharge of adrenalin, breathlessness by the underground beauty. This shock, felt deep inside, refers to other depths: that of our bodies and our souls. Caves are often associated with the feminine and become metaphors of a certain original matrix. Ancient stories or interpretations, our intuitions always lead us to a mother earth perceptible in the depths. To discover this new exhibition, its new route will take you into the depths of the 15th century nave of the former church of the Beffroi Saint-Martin, classified as a historical monument since 1925. A new scenography, like a jewel box, will honor the works of the exhibition Profonde Intuition.
