Loic Le Gaillard and Julien Lombrail, founders and directors of Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery (CWG), announce their participation in the inaugural Pavilion of Art & Design New York art fair, taking place November 10 – 14, 2011 at Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory.
During PAD New York 2011 CWG will engage a collaborative design-driven dialogue with its artists, presenting an exhibition that will redefine the concept of the “art fair booth” as we know it. The booth’s atmosphere will be punctuated with utilitarian sculptures to promote bold, contemporary and innovative design-art, where sculptural form prevails over the central functionality of the artworks. CWG will showcase a marriage between a classic repertoire of design artworks—with relevance to historical staples such as the Jean Royere-inspired Royeroid Collection by Robert Stadler—while simultaneously focusing an unprecedented spotlight on emerging talents.
CWG’s featured artists at PAD New York include Charles Trevelyan, a UK-based Australian, making his American debut with his literally magnetizing, freestanding sculptures. Sebastian Brajkovic, whose artworks are included in the permanent collection of the New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, will show his new conceptions from his notorious Lathe Collection. French artist, Mathieu Lehanneur will present Light Dome, a state-of-the-art light-sculpture/chandelier that consists of a lightweight demi-spheric painted metal structure which holds 41 ring shaped neutral white fluorescent lamps in three different sizes.
