Design Miami/ Basel 2014

Claude Lalanne -Bijoux

We are delighted to announce that we will be exhibiting at Design Miami/ Basel from 17th-22nd June, stand no G29, as part of the main gallery programme.


This year the gallery will be presenting "Claude Lalanne - Bijoux" an exciting exhibition of work by Claude Lalanne.


In recent years the work of Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne has achieved iconic status, garnering a cult-like following among private collectors and luminaries alike (Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent amongst them).  The exhibition aims to contextualise and focus new light on the remarkable jewellery by Claude Lalanne, one of the few mediums of artistic expression she did not share with her husband.


Claude Lalanne ranks amongst the foremost figures in Artist's Jewels. Like Calder before her, Lalanne has created jewellery alongside her large scale work throughout her career.


Taking inspiration from the salon of one of their most devoted patrons, Yves Saint Laurent, the viewer will be invited to enter a central pavilion dedicated to the whimsical world of Lalanne. Creating a dialogue between the artist's jewellery and sculpture, the space will feature specially commissioned work including a chandelier, tables, chairs and a mirror.  Neatly framed by these large-scale works, Lalanne's jewels will adorn classical busts inside and out the pavilion.


We will also be presenting work by  Anish Kapoor, Sophia Vari, Mariko Mori, Conrad Shawcross, Man Ray, Fontana, Picasso, Man Ray, Max Ernst and Pol Bury
