The “Victor Hugo, the Ocean-Man” exhibition

Published by under Breaking News

Alliance Française & The University of Hong Kong Libraries cordially invites you to the “Victor Hugo, the Ocean-Man” exhibition created by the National Library of France (BnF).

The National Library of France presents a comprehensive exhibition, in French, Chinese and English, examining Hugo’s deep connection with the sea and concentrating on his Guernsey novel, Les Travailleurs de la Mer.

Many writers in the nineteenth and twentieth century lived a double life between the pen and the brush. Victor Hugo – by the volume of his graphic production and inventiveness – occupies in this list, a special place.

Yet he qualified his drawings “attempts I have made, at moments of almost unconscious daydreams, with what was left of the ink from my feather” species tests performed by me, at times almost unconscious reverie, with what remained of ink in my pen, they nevertheless constituted a continuity between the writing and image. The pen slides into the brush.

The exhibit will be held in the exhibition area on the Ground Floor of the Main Library from the 5th March – 14th March 2014.
