Around forty works - paintings and sculptures - by the artist, a major figure of French expressionism, will be presented at the Capazza gallery.

Flaran Abbey invites you to discover the exhibition of Lydie Arickx (contemporary painting).
After studying at the Ecole supérieure d'Arts graphiques Penninghen, Lydie Arickx (1954-), a painter and sculptor of Flemish origin, has been taking part in international exhibitions and events since the 1980s. Recognised as one of the great French contemporary artists and supporting a militant approach to contemporary art made up of perpetual experimentation, it seemed natural that she should be welcomed at the Flaran Departmental Heritage Centre. This flagship exhibition of the summer offers, in the Cistercian spaces of the abbey church, not a retrospective but a refined communion with the place. These twenty painted and sculpted works from 1998 to 2018, with their unfeigned expressiveness, are a striking reflection of his multiple works.
Opening hours of the exhibition at Flaran Abbey :
Until October 17, 2021: daily / 9:30-12:30 and 14:00-18:00
