Ginevra Elkann and the Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli invited Patrick and Laurence Seguin -Parisian art dealers specalised in French mid XXth century design- to exhibit for the first time their own personal collection in the famous Lingotto space, Turino (Italy). This fantastic architecture, which used to be Fiat’s manufacture and entirely renovated by Renzo Piano, will serve as wonderful setting for the Seguins rare pieces of Jean Prouvé furniture, architecture and chosen contemporary artworks. This exhibition -from Spring through Fall 2013- will be accompanied by a rich catalogue co-edited by Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella Agnelli & Galerie Patrick Seguin.
When Laurence and Patrick Seguin discovered the work of Jean Prouvé in the late 1980s, they were immediately struck by the unique aesthetic of these pieces. The couple quickly took an interest in his work as a whole, of which the furniture is only a part, going on to discover his architectural designs.
The lavishly illustrated exhibition catalogue presents a unique way to explore the wholly work of Jean Prouvé; from design to architecture. Through a selection of Highlights one may also appreciate Prouvé’s relevance to contemporary art.
This hard covered 280 pages exhibition catalogue present the Seguin unique collection:
The latter is first approached globally with a chapter devoted to their interior in their residence in Paris. Prouvé’s work is , studied specifically with each model of design and architecture elements accompanied with a full caption and several archive documents (drawing, archive photographs, sketches…). A Chapter is , specifically devoted to Prouvé’s Aluminium Métropole House, which will be presented on the Lingotto’s roof. One may truly apprehend the creator’s avant-garde in the field of architecture with the account of this specific commission. The narrative is richly illustrated with archive documents and sketches. Lastly, this authoritative catalogue will focus on the exhibition itself through numerous images of the show in the wonderful Lingotto space.
