The exhibition

In Rouen, in the footsteps of Nadja

Nadja, a diary recounting Breton's meeting with Léona Delcourt, written in 1927 at the Manoir d'Ango, in Varengeville-sur-Mer, where moral reflections, confidences and philosophy are intertwined. Tackling the challenge of constructing a scientific statement from this literary work which, on the contrary, advocates "the resolution of these two seemingly contradictory states of dream and reality" (Breton), curator Alexandre Mare describes his display in these terms: "It is a seemingly heterogeneous mixture, but one which will above all be in the image of surrealist production: a generator of meaning, ideas and sensations." As a result, the exhibition presents both essential pieces - the glove designed by Nadja entitled Le Rêve du chat (1926) - and a few detours.
