White Odyssey Cartier

Text: Natalia Remmer

EVERY YEAR APPLIERS OF HIGH ARTS - VISITORS OF THE ART DUBAI FAIR - WAIT FOR A WONDERFUL TRANSFORMATION OF THE CARTIER PAVILION. THE KING OF JEWELERS DOESN'T STOP RADING. IN SPRING 2014, THE HOUSE SENT ITS FRIENDS TO A WHITE URBANISTIC ODYSSE.

The famous jeweler becomes a genius of experiments. We all remember the magical "Natural Element" (2012 - approx. Ed.) With a white panther at the entrance, an abundance of feathers, fur and flowers - that wonderful Cartier garden, saturated with a passion for wildlife, populated by exciting sounds and aromas of mind and consciousness. The Brazilian artist Beatrice Milases decorated the exhibition with an elegant aquarium of pearls, precious and semiprecious stones. This is not forgotten!

A year later, in collaboration with the Italian design master Alessandro Mendini, the Le Visage Archaique exposition was erected in the Madinat Jumeirah pavilion. The maestro brought to the shores of the Persian Gulf, everyone’s favorite corner of Paris at Rue de la Paix, 13. In the center is a figure of an idol from a golden mosaic with a pendant storing Cartier’s golden creations. And again an extraordinary idea struck a sophisticated viewer!

This year, the eternal values ​​imprinted on a planet in a heavy stone encountered a global world advancing on them - the avant-garde, not always carrying a creative beginning, sometimes even bearing disharmony. Perhaps this is why a separate room was allocated for the creation of the African designer Bodis, Isek Kingelez - an imaginary space of scrap metal, cardboard and fragile materials. Cartier House together with the Center for Contemporary Art tried to play on the contrast of opposites, in which the light defeated the dark with a clear margin. It is worth talking here about the will, to a greater extent than about emotions!

1984 - 2014

The Cartier Foundation for Contemporary Art celebrates its 30th anniversary. In honor of the anniversary, from May 10 to September, the museum will present the exhibition "RAM", where you can see collections talking about the ongoing evolution of contemporary art. It is worth recalling that the Cartier Foundation, created in 1984 at the initiative of Alain Dominique Perrin, became the first private foundation of modern art in the history of French philanthropy.

Very quickly, he turned into a center for the development and support of painting, sculpture, cinema, photography and fashion. Organizations owe their access to the world stage to such artists as Takashi Murakami, Tony Ousler, Paul Gabrielli and many others. The foundation actively collaborates with museums and galleries around the world.
