Pieces which are always rare, contemporary, functional and original, where the exceptional sometimes more sculptural piece is confirmed by the intelligence, culture and reference to the past required to provoke the emotion of true connoisseurs, like the “Ghost of a Chair” by the Mexican Valentina Glez Wohlers. A reinterpretation of the concept of immateriality: like a ghost who shows himself to the living through a nebulous spectre, it is not a chair but the souvenir of its shape, stuck in the past.
Also of note amongst the other pieces offered on site, the Tension Tables by the Belgian designer Alain Gilles. A rectangular table is cut and allows the elements therefore obtained to be played with to produce a progressive typology: an infinite combination of Tension Tables can be arranged at random. Visually, the ensemble gives an impression of tension and floating, as if the tables rest on a single leg.
Galerie Gosserez is directed by Marie-Bérangère Gosserez, an auctioneer since 2005. Following her first gallery specialising in furniture and objects from the ‘50’s (and in particular ceramics), today she is opening a resolutely contemporary address, in the heart of the Marais.
