HOME TREND: STARK WHITE OBJETS


HOME TREND: STARK WHITE OBJETS Now in its fifth year, The Pavilion of Art & Design London gathers the most exclusive European galleries under one large, pink tent in Berkeley Square to show their beautiful objets d’art and design as part of the ever-growing London art week with P.A.Dserving as a more boutique-like alternative to the nearby behemoth Frieze Art Fair. This year, we went on a quest to pick out the most striking contemporary works from the 20th-century art and furniture collections. Five very different works grabbed our attention, united by their minimal white expression. Sandra Davolio‘s beautifully-delicate white porcelain vessels (shown above) were the standout at the Modernity Gallery. Created by an Italian ceramicist living in Denmark, the pieces combine typically-Scandinavian aesthetic restraint with the floral Italian character of spiraling petals.

 

Also distinctly playful is Beth Katleman‘s dramatic “Folly” (2010). Fifty suspended white porcelain sculptures throwing shadows across a turquoise backdrop come together as a kind of 3D wallpaper installation, which Katleman describes as a contemporary interpretation of traditional 18th-century Toile de Jouy fabrics.
