Bodrum Loft recently announced an exclusive collaboration with Perrotin, a renowned art gallery, and a captivating exhibition for the summer.
Aptly named “French Delights,” this extraordinary exhibition will be open to the public from 1 July to 10 September 2023, inviting guests of the resort and art enthusiasts alike to indulge in a visual feast.
Curated Selection of Sculptures by Perrotin Artists
Curated by the talented Selcan Atilgan, the French Delights exhibition showcases a remarkable collection of 18 sculptures by esteemed artists affiliated with Perrotin. This carefully chosen ensemble includes masterpieces by Iván Argote, Jean-Marie Appriou, Daniel Arsham, Wim Delvoye, Elmgreen & Dragset, Laurent Grasso, Gregor Hildebrandt, Klara Kristalova, Takashi Murakami, Jean-Michel Othoniel, Paola Pivi, and Xavier Veilhan.
Embracing the richness and complexity of contemporary sculpture, the exhibited works epitomize a diverse array of subjects. From false archaeology and folklore to human and animal worlds, abstraction, and formalism, each sculpture captivates with its unique narrative.
The selection not only encompasses a variety of themes but also showcases an array of techniques and materials. Some pieces pay homage to traditional sculptural practices, utilizing techniques such as modelling, moulding, and material assembly. Others boldly break free from convention, venturing into innovative realms of artistic expression.
Luxurious Nature and Breathtaking Sea Views
