The artistic adventure of Gerard Sendrey has been accompanying him forever
and his works are now featured in many places of reference: the LAM of
Lille – Aracine collection, La Fabuloserie in Dicy, the Anatole Jakowsky
Art Naïve Museum in Nice, the Art Brut Museum in Lausanne – the Neuve
Invention collection -, the Folk-Art Museum in New York, the Museum of dr.
Guislain (Belgium), the Gugging Museum (Austria)…
Gerard Sendrey is also the man who started the Creation Franche. In 1989,
in Begles, he deployed a great deal of conviction, determination and
perseverance to commence the creation of what would become in 1996 the
Musée de la Creation Franche. A place that has become unavoidable for
lovers of outsider creation.
« Yes ! I am very happy about it. What a wonderful adventure it was,
unfolding depending on the opportunities presented by each moment and on
the willingness of people to materialize these opportunities, with no
previous project! So many people who cooperated to the establishment of an
institution! I am perfectly aware that I was no more than a receptacle,
gathering all the conjugated good will that lead to this unexpected
resulted. I am proud to have played the part of an instrument in this
design-less construction, of a mere tool obeying the injunctions of the
present moment”, declares with great modesty this tireless creator.
