TEFAF 2014

14.03.2014/General
TEFAF 2014
We are pleased to announce our participation at TEFAF Maastricht
The fair runs from 14 - 23 March.

Our booth no. 424 is conceived in two parts, one as an open “gallery” space the other as a full collector’s cabinet.  T
he gallery is conceived as a servey of several historically important Gutai paintings  from Kazuo Shiraga, Tsuyoshi Maekawa, Norio Imai and Yuko Nasaka, each showing the freshness and creative originality that characterized this Japanese avant-garde movement. These paintings will be juxtaposed to some important archaeological pieces among which a monumental draped Roman sculpture of “Aphrodite Ourania” in marble, dating from the 1st to 2nd century A.D., from the famous Californian collection of Sir Daniel Donohue.
The cabinet will show a unique library from the early 1950s designed by the famous Milanese architects’ studio BBPR.  This library consists of three elements of which one is pivoting and double sided. We will equally present an important collection of antiquities e.g. an Egyptian Head of a Block Statue in granodiorite from the New Kingdom, XVIIIth Dynasty; and a large Cambodian Pre Khmer head of Hari Hara in sandstone from the 7th -8th century presenting a meditative silence.
In juxtaposition of the archaeological artworks from various origins we will show a mesmerizing work made from thousands of aluminium liquor bottle tops by the African artist El Anatsui.   Using found objects he reworks and rearranges materials and transforms them into something new without losing their own history. His work could be described as a collage of discarded memories.
