Exhibition 2017 of the Contemporary Art Center : Opiums?

The collection of the Auberive Abbey is essentially centered on the human, its complexity, its animality, its joys and vicissitudes. It also reveals a part of this search for the inexplicable, the dream, the mystic, surrealism, the need to give a name to these aspirations, to believe. (…) Man abhors emptiness. When he chases a religion, a philosophy or a belief it is to replace it with another … Believe, isn’t the definitive opium?
