Gallery Résidences

Open now for six months, this workshop-gallery is shared by a group of contemporary artists including Sophie Robbe, Aude Medori and Galatée Pestre who exhibit their jewelry there. They also open this space to others like Hélène Gugenheim whose work is to “repair” damaged bodies by covering their scars with gold leaf. Inspired by a Japanese philosophy, this ritual is both touching and disturbing.
