Disney's Bad for Good (Le Mal pour le Bien) Auction

The works of 23 creators working within the fashion industry, the visual and fine arts one, cinema, literature and haute cuisine area will be auctioned in favor of La Source association, founded by artist Gérard Garouste. Tajan auction house will be leading the sale. It has already been many years since fashion designers and artists have reinterpreted iconic Disney characters with their very own sensitivity. This time, Disney has been willing to give them carte blanche to create works not only from a character but from an entire universe: the one relating to Bad and Good, timeless and ever present common theme to all Disney creations.

Bad For Good: creators’ childhood memories:
Paul Smith / Chantal Thomass / Christian Louboutin / Christian Lacroix / Véronique Leroy / Anne Valérie Hash / Martin Grant / Kobi Levi / Gisèle Ganne / Manish Arora / Francis Kurkdjian / Gérard Garouste / Elisabeth Garouste / Speedy Graphito / Laurent Pernot / Martine Aballéa / Virginie Barré / Thierry Dreyfus / Lionel Estève / Christophe Ono-Dit-Biot / Benjamin Renner / Philippe Conticini / Jean Rochefort

All of them have brought to l fe a personal souvenir of Bad or Good from an animated movie seen during their childhood.

The works gathered, most of them being brand new creations, will illustrate Disney movies’ eternal vocation: 'Over at our place, we're sure of just one thing: everybody in the world was once a child. So in planning a new picture, we don't think of grown ups, and we don't think of children, but just of that fine, clean, unspoiled spot down deep in every one of us that maybe the world has made us forget and that maybe our pictures can help recall' Walt Disney.
« I pass you down this souvenir, to help you growing up »

The Walt Disney Company France has wanted that the operation 'Bad for Good' can contribute to its vocation of hand over and solidarity amongst children, which has already been developed for many years with various associations in favour of childhood.

The auction will therefore be in favor of La Source association created in 1991 by painter Gérard Garouste, who intends to help children and young people facing social problems, both family and school related, and to develop their artistic creativity in various fields (www.associationlasource.fr).
