Anthony, Jérémy and Aurélien started talking a few years ago, driven by their love of Marcel Proust and beautiful chairs. This complicity, both aesthetic and literary, now takes shape in a long-term collaboration between the artist and the Gallery. The Filiations exhibition is the first step.

“René Gabriel, Raphaël Raffel, Pierre Guariche, Marcel Gascoin… Through the Filiations project, I wish to pay tribute to these French designers from the mid-20th century who were able to mark their era with pieces with a singular but accessible design.
These designers have paved the way for a concrete approach to so-called “standard” furniture with high standards of quality and style. I chose some legendary furniture models that I wanted to draw because drawing is taking the time to observe, to perceive. Drawing is also the best way to pay homage to my eyes. An assembly detail, a subtle angle, an association of materials… elements that make up the specificity of these pieces of furniture-icons of French decorative arts.”
