From October 12th - November 24th 2012 Gallery Kreo will present 'Together' an exhibition of works selected by Marcel Brient from his private collection.
selection from text by Clément Dirié
Prior to being a simple display of works, this exhibition is a meeting point. An encounter between contemporary art and design where poetry is a guest of honor. An encounter between a collector and a gallery sharing mutual admiration.
An encounter centered on aesthetic, and friendship cemented by the taste of the collector and his vivid curiosity.
An encounter with the public, where Marcel Brient reveals a chosen selection of his collection.
Comprised of “mood rooms”-- a reference to “period rooms” in decorative arts museums– this exhibition brings together and confronts, but not only, the lithe design of the “Podify” table by Konstantin Grcic with the graphic power of « Burned Out » by Michel Majerus; the invitation to escape with the « Carbon » ladder by Marc Newson with an « Escalade » by Nate Lowman.
There is no doubt we will all see how beautiful it is.
