L'Art et la Matière
54 Rue Mazarine - Paris
Jun 7, 2019 - Jul 6, 2019
Mouvements Modernes settles for a month in the gallery of 54 rue Mazarine
The opportunity for us to present more extensively the works of the artists
who have recently joined the gallery:
The Inner or Manifesto Landscapes of Italiano-Brazilian architect Daniela
Busarello, an incredible glass sculpture by Nadège Desgenétez
whose work will be the subject of our next fall solo show, the very astonishing
reading lamp and table lamp Cosme by Constance Guisset,
two Out of Frame sculptures by Mathias Kiss, as well as a series of
stucco and straw marquetry tables by François Mascarello that will resonate
with his silk work - Samarcande.
The work of these four artists will come to dialogue with the works of
our ceramists, Armelle Benoit - with her sculpture tables and ceramic
paintings, Matthew Chambers and his hypnotic sandstones, and Sejin
Bae with his graphic works.
The elegant Pli light series, the Biscuit sconces and the natural oak
Branche console by the designer Fabien Petiot will confirm this exploration
of the possibilities of materials and the wealth of contemporary
creation that Mouvements Modernes has been defending since its beginnings.
The pieces of the Neotu period will not be left behind in these scenographies,
with the majestic table Barbara by Garouste and Bonetti in
1988, a whimsical set of 7 vases each representing a country of the
glassmaker Borek Sipek, Martin Székély's cabinet Leone and a series
of six Kolton chairs that revive a collaboration between Julio Villani who
agreed to draw the embroidery of their seats as he did in 1988, year of
creation of the chair by Pierre Staudenmeyer.
As he had hoped by launching Mouvements Modernes in 2002 and as
pursued so elegantly and precisely Sophie Mainier Jullerot, more than
40 years of creation will be presented in the 4 spaces of the gallery 54
questioning the link between Art and Crafts in order to prove ever more
the continuity of human creativity.
