February 2021 / Art at home
The history of Paris is closely entwined with that of its artists, who have made a significant contribution to the city’s identity, beauty and spirit: walls and a roof provide shelter and art nourishes our soul.
Having a work of art in one’s home is like having a window that opens onto our imaginary world. From personal objects to works by established artists, every piece of art in our home is a piece of the puzzle that reveals who we truly are. Emotion meets meaning and, by bringing art into our interiors, we assert the character of our adventure through life.
With the courage of their convictions, Olivia de Fayet and Fanny Saulay founded Wilo & Grove, a new kind of gallery that effectively bridges the gap between artists and art enthusiasts, by increasing the former’s visibility and advising the latter. Far from an academic approach to art, they encourage us to be more daring and welcome work by today’s artists into our homes.
Corridors become galleries and art reveals the unique character of an interior – desire paves the way and the people we meet do the rest.
Wilo & Grove and Brunswick_art are in residence in our agencies until spring. Come and discover their creative worlds: the bridge has been built, all you need to do is cross it!
