We are pleased to announce our participation at the 58th edition of BRAFA, the Brussels Antiques & Fine Arts Fair, which takes place at Tour & Taxis from the 19th till the 27th of January 2013.
We kindly invite you to visit our stand (no. 67) on one of these days.
Our stand will have the atmosphere of a contemporary artist loft. The center of our booth will feature a French horseshoe-shaped library in walnut in which a wide collection of art objects of various origins will be on display, such as Egyptian and Roman archaeological pieces, Taino objects and Central-Asian ritual objects. The library will also present a wide selection of small paintings and drawings of several ZERO-artists, such as Piero Manzoni, Jef Verheyen, Raymund Girke and some ‘Ironuri’ or found objects painted over the course of time by the Japanese Gutai artist Sadaharu Horio.
One of the most important archaeological artworks from our stand will be a monumental draped Roman Venus Figure in marble from the 1st-2nd century A.D., which has never been exhibited before. Another rare piece is an exceptional Egyptian head in sandstone of Senenmut, architect and dignitary during the reign of Hatchepsut, New Kingdom, 18th Dynasty. One of the major furniture pieces from our BRAFA stand will be an impressive English Pedestal Desk in mahogany attributed to Gillows who made it ca. 1770 for William Lowther, 1st Earl of Lonsdale. The opposite wall will present a “Magnetic Wall” by the Greek sculptor Takis in which he renders visible the unseen energies. In the same room, an unseen Paintstick painting by Richard Serra of 1985 will be on display. Although two dimensional, Serra transforms the powerful sense of weight and density evoked in his sculpture into large, black planar forms.
We’re looking forward to meeting you personally at our stand and to show you these artworks.
