t is no longer a school, it is not a museum and it is far more than a gallery… The art centre opened in 2009 by Françoise Livinec
in Le Huelgoat, a little Breton village in the heart of the Monts d'Arrée, is a place where time stops; a place that summons the past and present under the tutelary figure of poet and sinologist Victor Segalen; a place where lovers of literature and painting come together every summer.

Wei Ligang transcends nature, reinterpreting and renewing China's artistic tradition. "His art has a strong affinity with the work of Zao Wou-ki and Chu Teh-chun," observes Maël Bellec. "He questions the core, the very structure of the calligraphy technique, and invents new characters." The work exhibited this year at the École des Filles, a large format combining black, white and
