ok Matter Made - MMXVII - Fuorisalone 2Matter Made, the design brand by Matter, New York based gallery, will be showcased by Triode starting on 16th of November, with a private vernissage. Matter was founded in 2003, and quickly became recognized as an innovative furniture design store, later becoming the editor of Matter Made brand, which maintains the same high standards of quality and innovation the gallery became known for.

To have the same quality within both of these realms of design is rare” explains Jacques Barret of Triode.

The Balise collection alone sums up the DNA of Atelier de Troupe: the collision of eras with the passion for 20th century furniture!

200x200 cmFrom November the 16th until January the 27th, Z Gallery Art has the pleasure of exhibiting ‘Intellectual Concerns’, a new solo show by artist Khaled Alkani. The 42 year old Syrian painter will present a series of paintings which have an unscathed expressionist force, as described by French art critic Christian Noorbergen “Khaled Alkhani’s searing abstraction contrasts with the figurative appearance of a head. It dominates the earth-ridden melee and is deprived of the ordinary vehicle of skin. Focal point of the painting, it has lived through every disaster”. (more…)

For his first solo show at MAMOThéodore Fivel presents his series Alpha, originating from his large ensemble of works, Charges. Alpha shapes a dialog with the Mediterranean sea. This series refers to Tethys, primitive ocean, slowly dismantled by the drift of continents, maritime myth of waves engulfed in the origins of the world. It is a source of inspiration for the artist’s futurist mental projections, as if he were redrawing the sea and its depth, as if Tethys were hiding in us and carried inside the sediments of salvation from all waters of our planet.

Charges is a large molar ensemble which sublimes nature in an alchemy of strangeness, smoothing the frontier between sculpture and painting. The shapes are carved in wood and then covered with multiple layers of paint charged with different minerals and slivers of material that the artist then remodels. From this technique emerge polychromous sculptures of shifing materiality, almost incandescent. The compositions of colorful precipitates give birth to a reflection on abstraction and the components of any work of art, its materiality and the context of its exhibition.

A first glance, Théodore Fivel’s work evokes geology: figurations of deserted spaces, minerals, plants, chunks of earth immerged at the bottom of our seas, unknown islands, fragments of mountains – an entire cartography, both hypnotical and anamorphic, of faraway planets, futuristic or primitive. Observed through a topographical prism, they become heretopias – utopian spaces which the artist gives life to. But that it is only a first glance. what Théodore Fivel truly represents are pure abstractions, of anisotropic nature.

He thinks the shape, and captures it, making it new to the eye, to the touch, to the sensation. To elaborate these new thoughts, a new language is required, similarly to Martin Heidegger’s holzweg, these forest tracks meant to lead nowhere, but whose hitherto unseen structures signal new worlds.

The relief instils movement, the image becomes an island, a projection drawing in the eye.” describes Farid Issa. (more…)


Schindler Furniture_-195-Editok
