  • Eric Fonteneau, La Bibliothèque

  • Jan 19, 2012 at 6:00am to Feb 11, 2012 at 12:00pm
  • Location: French Institute Alliance Française Gallery
  • Description:

    In La Bibliothèque, contemporary French artist Eric Fonteneau creates a trompe l’oeil library. Thousands of graphite and charcoal rubbings of book bindings, souvenirs copied at libraries during Fonteneau’s travels in Europe and America, line the walls of the site- specific installation. Fonteneau plays with the idea of real versus imagined and memory versus record, while hinting at the impending end of print in our increasingly digital world.

  • Arne Quinze - "My Home, My House, My Stilthouse"

  • Feb 1, 2012 to Mar 31, 2012
  • Location: Chelsea
  • Description:

    The Vicky David Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of the Belgian artist Arne Quinze.


    The gallery will present pieces from the series "My Home, My House, My Stilthouse" which plays on the dichotomy between chaos and equilibrium. From the appearant fragility of his material emerges overflowing energy and pure beauty.  Arne Quinze dreams of an ideal society in which all individuals communicate and interact with each other. Eclectically he uses paintings, drawings, sculptures and monumental installations to develop his work in the urban movement, by focusing on the themes: Order, Disorder, Structure and Habitation.


    Beginning in the early 2000’s, Arne Quinze’s œuvre is the subject of many public and private installations around the world such as ("Uchronia", Nevada, USA; "Timegate", Miami, USA; "Rebirth", Paris, FRANCE; "Red Beacon", Shanghai, CHINA; "Camille", Rouen, FRANCE; "The Sequence", Brussels, BELGIUM; "The Traveller", Munich, GERMANY ; "The Visitor", Beirut, LEBANON).
