Opera Gallery partners with EDERN restaurant

Some years ago, we met with Jean-Edern Hurstel in Dubai and bonded over our love of art, the Chef promising that he would one day display art curated by Opera Gallery in his own gourmet restaurant. 

In September 2018, the dream we shared became a reality: the restaurant EDERN opened its door in Paris’ luxurious 8th arrondissement and Opera Gallery is the exclusive art partner of the new trendy-yet-cosy contemporary space.

 

With a firmly contemporary art curation for EDERN, Opera Gallery has selected the ethereal work of Japanese painter Kazuki Takamatsu to be displayed alongside the textured folded canvases of Italian artist Pino Manos. This aesthetic approach compliments subtely the decor's monochromic palette and lets the Chef’s own creativity take pride of place in his restaurant.

The monumental sculptures on show include the much-travelled bronze Reina Mariana, which was recently on display on one of the most famous areas in Singapore. Among the others, Ariela, 2011, a unique piece of luminous beauty, made solely of aluminium, is blending in perfectly with the idyllic leafy surroundings.

Currently, Opera Gallery Geneva is also hosting a solo exhibition of Valdés and a plethora of his painting works, as well as indoor sculpture are on display to the public. The exhibition will run until June 15th.

Manolo Valdés at Berkeley Square

The monumental Reina Mariana by the prominent Spanish artist Manolo Valdés was installed today for public display at the historic Berkeley Square of London. The famous sculpture will be elegantly gracing the iconic square, located in the heart of the prestigious Mayfair area, within a secure park. The Spanish artist is internationally renowned for his monumental sculptures as well as signature paintings influenced by the great masters. 

Valdés has always observed the paintings of Diego Velázquez as a source and site of investigation. Especially Velázquez's portrait of Queen Mariana (ca. 1652), which has been a source of inspiration for Reina Mariana. 

The sculpture depicts the queen in a tightly encased bodice and stiff farthingale, as was the fashion of the time. Appearing stiff in both painting and sculpture, Reina Mariana captures the theatricality of courtly constraint. Made solely of bronze, its weight exceeds 800 kilograms, situated on a dark grey plinth. 

London visitors and residents will have the opportunity to gaze at the monumental sculpture at Berkeley Square for the coming months.

See more images of the monumental Reina Mariana here.

Yasmina Alaoui receives award at the 2018 Dakar Biennale

Congratulations to Yasmina Alaoui who was awarded the "Prix de la diversité culturelle” (Award for Cultural Diversity) at the 2018 Dakar Biennale "The Red Hour" curated by Simon Njami, in which she is representing Morocco with 4 new artworks from her series “Sediments”!

This new body of work explores the artist’s relationship to her roots in Northern Africa and the post-colonial world in which she exists. Yasmina Alaoui’s works pay homage to historic narratives of her Moroccan upbringing, including the pre-Islamic fascination with ruin. Referred to as "al-waqfa `ala al-atlal” this poetic motif considers a site of ruin as a starting place, a new beginning.

The Biennale of Contemporary African Art, DAK’ART, runs through 2 June 2018.
