Pierre Marie: Let yourself be overwhelmed by his world with Olu Nelum

In the 9th arrondissement of Paris, the Pierre Marie gallery is the perfect summary of the artist's flamboyant universe. Currently, a new exhibition is taking place there, Olu Nelum, displaying some of the objects that Pierre Marie designed especially for the edition of the Design Parade 2018. Discover a one-of-a-kind place and objects, just like their creator.

This second installation takes place within the Gallery of Pierre Marie is called Olu Nelumor "Lotus flower" in Sri Lankan. Taking advantage of his own space, the designer has chosen to highlight his various collaborations with workshops of ancestral and forgotten crafstmanship, by exhibiting some of the pieces created last year for the former Archbishopric of Toulon during the Design Parade.

The trades that have passed through time and French craftsmen are dear to the artist, and he likes to have them work on his projects regularly, like a 19th century interior designer, thinking his projects down to the last detail. Thus, the exhibition is the perfect setting to house unique pieces of blown glass by theAtelier Gamil, a Parisian glass workshop at the service of luxury, design and plastic arts. These master glassmakers are used to transform this material into real pieces of art, of a large or small scale.

In addition, on the occasion of the exhibition Olu Nelum, the stained-glass window made in 2018 by the Ateliers Duchemin was dismantled and reassembled as part of a grandiose architectural form, the centrepiece of the exhibition, designed by theAtelier François Pouenat. On the floor, underneath this metal and glass impressive spider, is also a rug with rich and powerful patterns, made by the Aubusson Manufacture Robert Four for Pierre Marie.

And if Pierre Marie is so keen to collaborate with the holders of these incredible skills, it is because they know how best to serve his whimsical and colourful aesthetic. Indeed, the artist, designer and "ornamental drawer"as he defined himself, would certainly have become the enemy ofAdolf Loof for whom the ornament was a crime! But it is precisely thanks to this generous universe, closer to the dream than to reality, that Pierre Marie has been able to charm the crowds, and especially the great and luxurious Parisian houses such as Hermès and Dyptique.

Places like the Pierre Marie's gallery are the perfect stage of his talent for the objects on display, but also regarding the decor inspired by all his influences. In the manner of Dimorestudio, the French artist does not neglect any detail, each square centimeter of the exhibition space being probably the faithful representation of his spirit and his taste for baroque patterns. He works on interiors in the same way, referring to the functions of an architect, interior designer and industrial designer that a draftsman must have practiced in the past.

In addition to his very singular world, we will also note the designer's attraction for pieces that are not widely used nowadays, such as stained-glass windows and ancien type tapestries, fields of application of his art in which Pierre Marie can certainly express to the maximum his draftsman discipline in three dimensions.
