Taking design inspirations from art galleries, or the discovery of Claudia Martínez Garay's fantastic work

En tant que plateforme dédiée au design, nous cherchons l’inspiration dans des domaines variés, plus ou moins éloignés de notre thématique première étant le mobilier. En ce sens, et ce depuis quelques mois, nous avons constaté d’une manière générale un regain d’intérêt pour les galeries d’art, et surtout la propension de celles-ci à héberger des expositions toujours plus imaginatives concernant la mise en scène des artistes représentés. Tel est le cas de la galerie Grimm et de la récente exposition « A las revoluciones, como a los árboles, se les reconoce por sus frutos / Revolutions, like trees, are recognized by their fruits », by the internationally acclaimed artist Claudia Martínez Garay.

 

 

Claudia Martínez Garay

 

If the work of artist Claudia Martínez Garay appears light and poetic at first glance, it is undeniably only an illusion. Indeed, if her work has already been exhibited in the most prominent institutions around the world, it is undoubtedly for its depth, certainly associated with an extremely graphic and eye-catching aesthetic. Her art, which aims to deal with the global history of Peru as well as the socio-political memory of the country, often tackles difficult themes such as propaganda and its iconographic power.

Claudia Martínez Garay mainly uses paint and creates surprising installations to express her ideas. Her work, naturally marked by her various stays, studies or artist residencies abroad, also emphasizes the re-reading, the recasting and the interpretation of visual traditions. This is how she communicates Peruvian history and the different ancient Amerindian cultures, through the use of abstract figures and sculptures en céramique pour réfléchir sur l’idée de la mémoire, de la vie et de la vie après la mort.

 

The exhibition « A las revoluciones, como a los árboles, se les reconoce por sus frutos / Revolutions, like trees, are recognized by their fruits » at the Grimm Gallery in Amsterdam offers a wealth of details, during which Claudia analyses modernity as an inseparable component of colonialism. Another interesting fact is that the exhibition functioned as an ongoing installation on which the artist keeps working during the exhibition period.

Perhaps this is linked to the fact that designers are increasingly turning to a new and independent kind of trade model – vente en galeries inclue – ou bien sont-ce les galeries elles-mêmes, plus enclines à représenter des emerging designers to the overflowing creativity that generates inspiration, but it would seem in any case that exhibitions of this kind benefit design. And more specifically to the collectible design, who makes extensive use of his vague qualification, between art and design to use staging similar to art galleries.

In this sense, the rise in recent years of events such as DesignMiami par exemple, où la catégorie des Curios, small spaces that curators make their own in order to present an exclusive piece or selection of objects, are becoming very important. This way of staging for commercial purposes thus takes up the very principle of gallery and ephemeral installation. This last fact makes it possible to create a real appetence for an exhibition, pushing the creatives to immerse themselves in design inspirations.

 

Car là où the art galleries create inspiration, it is the ability for each designer to feel the desire to identify with the works presented and to personally benefit from them. Here, the colors really match in a balance that suggests that it could very well be a selected palette for a restaurant, a hotel, a piece of furniture. The gallery and its touring itinerary stimulate the imagination and interpretation, which is why some institutions do not simply limit themselves to a white background to present their artists: le storytelling s’est emparé de notre société et les galeries n’y ont pas échappé.

 

Car raconter une histoire c’est créer de l’émotion, un ressenti, et c’est uniquement par ce biais que le processus créatif a lieu. Et nous aimons savoir que les domaines artistiques, aussi distincts et différents soient-ils, sont capables de prendre l’inspiration partout et au même endroit à la fois. Un bel avenir pour les galeries d’art, le design, et plus encore.
