G COMME GALERISTE : BLUM & POE

What does FIAC represent for you? Grand Palais. What makes FIAC stand out among other fairs? I mean it's just distinctly different from any other Fair in the world. I mean it's obvious even to the amateur. If they've gone to four or five or six art fairs that this is particularly unique. What impressed you most during this edition of FIAC?

G COMME GALERISTE : CAPITAIN PETZEL

Is being a gallerist a trade or a passion for you? It's both it's a passion but it's also business and you have to do both and in the best possible way. You create a platform for the artist to do what they want to realize not just to develop an artist for the first few years and have some success but to develop in a career over 30 years or more that is where it becomes challenging and that's where it becomes rewarding you know.

BEHIND THE (ART)PIECE : ODILE DECQ

Lorsque Philippe Gravier m'a demandé un pavillon j'ai tout de suite pensé à ce pavillon que je voulais faire depuis un certain temps, qui en fait la réplique d'un pavillon du XVIIIème que j'ai un jour admirer dans un parc et dont j'ai pris repris les proportions mais j'ai fait ça totalement dans un verre noir. Parce que ce qui m'intéresse maintenant de plus en plus dans les pièces que je fais, dans les installations que je fais c'est de travailler sur la réflexion sur ce qu'on voit n'est pas...

BEHIND THE (ART)PIECE : NOEL DOLLA

BEHIND THE (ART)PIECE : NOEL DOLLA

Une oeuvre qui s'appelle Nymphéas pause déluge 2. Je crois que le titre est déjà assez évocateur de ce qui peut se passer. L'idée c'était aussi de rendre quelque part hommage à claude monet qui se trouve là à l'orangerie avec ses magnifiques peintures.J'allais non pas peindre un tableau de Monet mais essayer de repenser et de penser à partir de ce que Monet voyait à Giverny dans ces bassins. Pour un artiste c'est un peu un rêve étrange pas en avoir qu'on m'offre une toile de 3200 mètres...

Several questions for Nara RoeslerWhy did you open the gallery? I opened Galeria Nara Roesler almost 40 years ago in order to connect the public of the Northeast of Brazil to great artists that I identified in my formative years.
