His characters regularly fall asleep, plummet, literally fall into a dream which opens up to them a both fascinating and playful meta-reality. His is a world in which crows and cats speak, where there are two moons, where time ceases to exist and which is peopled by fairies and knights.

No exhibition of Hugo Pratt’s work had ever focused on the theme of dreams. So “Hugo Pratt, les chemins du rêve” broke new ground. An invitation to explore the labyrinthine and unfathomable geography of Pratt’s dreams, the exhibition used a careful and rigorous selection of around sixty original watercolours and plates to subtly highlight this bottom line that underpins all his oeuvre.

The exhibition was divided into three sections: Nature, Time and Characters. It combined reflections, shadow and light and display booths, creating subtle echoes of the world of Hugo Pratt’s comic strips. He was ubiquitous. In snippets from his interviews, he talked about his vision of dreams, his dream- and myth-filled reality and his writing and artistic processes.
