Large exhibition in Plérin, France.

Published on

Last June, during the Saint-Brieuc signing session, the director of "Bulles à Croquer" festival proposed a big and amazing project: a Pepper&Carrot exhibition on the scale of a supermarket for the fall 2023. Of course I accepted!

So over the last monthes, the Bulles à Croquer comic festival and E. Leclerc Plérin teamed up to create a very large exhibition. I could hardly believe it at first 😅 and I quickly felt a bit overwhelmed by the size of the exhibition. Not by the amount of work: Bulles à Croquer almost handled everything on their own, but it felt a bit surreal to get many of my artworks printed in big dedicated exhibition. 😇

The exhibition starts today and there are a large number of giant prints of Pepper&Carrot (illustrations and comic pages) that were made to decorate the hall of the supermarket (dozens of illustrations and comic pages). The exhibition aims to immerse visitors in the world of Pepper & Carrot and my illustrations.

I only have two photo samples right now done during the preparation, but I'll try to take more when I visit on start November. It's about 700km from my home, so I haven't visited it yet.

Update : I have received new photos from the ongoing exhibition! It's a total of 70 huge prints that have been displayed in the supermarket. 🤩 I made a montage to share them with you:


The cover of the third comic book, a large print on the floor.


The hall (click to enlarge).


Montage of the artworks on pillar (click to enlarge).


Various places (click to enlarge).


Comic pages, and the info at entrance. (click to enlarge).

About my participation to the exhibition, many illustrations required quality upgrades to the source files and some remakes. For example, check out the new A2 size high quality of "Powerfull", a 7000px large upscale done without AI for the upscaling; but with GMIC upscaling filters and manual overpainting. This will be printed and sold at the event, a high quality numbered print.

All my updates were merged in the gallery https://www.peppercarrot.com/en/artworks/artworks.html with their sources, so it will benefit future projects as well.

DATES:

  • From today until 11 November 2023: The exhibition.
  • Saturday 28 October: a potion magic contest for kids (8 to 12y/o), by chief Jean-Jacques Monfort, restaurant Brut.
  • Friday 3 November: I'll be around for a drawing workshop and digital painting demonstration.
  • Saturday 4 November: I'll be also there for a book signing session.

The event is free and organised by Bulles à croquer, but a registration is necessary for the activities, please register at webmestre@bullesacroquer.net

Hmm, a 16 hour train ride... Maybe a bit too long to justify by looking at some cool art. Sounds awesome, though!

@lucas Thanks! Oh yes, I wouldn't recommend a long travel like that to see the exhibition; maybe it worth a 1h30 car travel, but not more. I hope it will give ideas to more events; the Creative Commons license of the artworks allow them to do that and it also protect them from copyright infringements (the printed version in France starts to be more popular in the comic bubble afaik than the webcomic version).

if it were reachable with the 49 euro ticket, we'd go there, just to see it, too bad it's in france

davidrevoy

@daughterofrao Thanks and no worry; even within France itself, it's a bit difficult to reach this destination (it's a mall, so a bit outside of the city; and taking a train to the nearest train station is still far away). It was designed as a local event for the customer of the supermarket and as a cultural attraction to the surrounding.

> ça doit faire quelque chose…

Oui, ça fait un truc. Un jour vers mes 17 ans, on avait blagué avec mon père en face d'une grande surface que ça ferait une belle salle d'exposition. Genre un délire en faisant les courses, pour rire, alors que je galerai à exposer mes dessins.

Ce genre d'anecdote que j'avais zappé à refait surface en voyant les photos et soudainement je me suis senti bien loin de mes débuts.

🤯 Ca décape fort et remue plein de choses intérieurement. Va falloir digérer.

@masukomi Thanks! Yes, I'll receive a flat fee that was part of the budget of the event. The workshop, the digital painting demo will be also paid, and all my travel and accomodation as well. This association does the things well, I saw that when I joined their comic event in Saint-Brieuc last June.

@Aznorth @zekounet Merci, alors j'en ai encore aucune idée. Je vais savoir ça en allant visiter la galerie en fin de semaine prochaine.

Je spécule qu'une partie des bâches doit être réutilisable (réimprimable?) ou bien que l'expo pourrai être réutilisé dans un autre contexte. (eg. le festival de BD de la ville en Juin). En tout cas, si jamais il y a des choses à récuperer, j'en informerai tout de suite mes reseaux avant que ça n'aille à la poubelle.

Connaissant un tout petit peu comment ça se passe après les conventions, je me demande :
tu sais ce que deviendront ces toiles ?

Parce que les gros éditeurs jettent massivement, mais là ce serait quand même super dommage.

Oui, ce pouet est carrément intéressé 😁

Et bonne convention à toi surtout ! Je te souhaite plein de belles rencontres !

@carrotcypher Thanks! Oh yes, I'm really proud, but I'm mostly thankfull of the honor that "Bulles à Croquer" (the org of the event) did to my artwork, and this totally remotely. It was done with a lot of care and the preparation took months for them. I'm so thankfull for their respect to the original material. All the crop are tastefull, the color looks correctly saturated and without weird balance. Very cool 🤩
