The Jean Pigozzi African Art Collection

Pascale Marthine Tayou – Gri-Gri – VNH Gallery, Paris, France

from 25/04/2015 to 09/06/2015

Victoire de Pourtalès and Hélène Nguyen-Ban invite you to the opening of VNH Gallery, a new art space in Paris dedicated to contemporary art.

The gallery will open with an inaugural installation presented from April 25th till June 20th at 108, rue Vielle du Temple, 75003, Paris.

VNH Gallery has invited the Cameroon-born artist Pascale Marthine Tayou to explore the space on the occasion of its reconstruction, with the exhibition titled « Gri-Gri ».

Momentarily « deconstructed » in order to reveal its future volumes, the gallery is reduced to its raw structure : the artist presents six major installations, most of which entirely new, created specially for the site. Following the success of his exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London, it is the first show by Pascale Marthine Tayou in the heart of Paris.

In the fall 2015, VNH Gallery will finally settle permanently in the entirely renewed space and will unfold its programme of events, which is to be announced shortly.

VNH Gallery welcomes all visitors to share this unique moment conceived as an initiatory journey into the process of creation.

Accommodate the new sense of place through the desire of participation, it is the meaning of this project created with the collaboration between GALLERIA CONTINUA and VNH GALLERY.
