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

next June.

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.
