Discover the Art Gallery - Linda and Guy Pieters Fondation

 

 

In the heart of Saint-Tropez, the Linda & Guy Pieters Foundation exhibits in its private mansion facing la Place des Lices, works of renowned artists whom they have been representing for many years.


Admission is free. This foundation is one of the most prestigious institutions of contemporary art on the French Riviera today.

EXHIBITION

 

The charismatic protector of Flemish art, who has become a Tropezian at heart, now divides his time between the Riviera and Knokke-le Zoute, which is highly appreciated by Northern European collectors. On the Riviera, Guy Pieters has the talent and connections to bring to life exhibitions of monumental works, such as the large sculptures of Arman (2018), Folon (2019) and Jan Fabre (2020).

This year 8 monumental sculptures by Rotraut are installed in town, amongst which Rigoletto Emeraude, a work in painted aluminum, created in 2010. Iconic artist  Rotraut, birth name Rotraut Uecker, is a French German artist who was the wife and muse of the “monochromist” Yves Klein, who died prematurely in 1962 at the age of 34.

 


 

 

Homage to Christo & Jeanne-Claude
Until 29 august, homage to Christo & Jeanne-Claude, longtime friends of Linda and Guy Pieters who accompanied these contemporary artists out of the ordinary with their large scale projects since the 80’s. Christo, apostle of ephemeral artistic “wrapping” and always causing a planetary buzz, is famously known for his wrapping of the Pont Neuf in Paris in 1985, as well as the Reichstag in Berlin in 1995. Here no one has forgotten the first exhibition in the Fondation Linda et Guy Pieters of the original drawings and collages of  The London Mastaba, a temporary sculpture floating atop Hyde Park's Serpentine Lake in the center of London
in 2018.
The main focus of this year’s exhibition is l’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped (Project for Paris) – from 18 September until 3 October – which will be yet another amazing example of landscaping art. Realized in close collaboration with the Centre des Monuments Nationaux and the Centre Pompidou, the Arc de Triomphe will be wrapped in 25,000 square meters of recyclable polypropylene fabric in silvery blue, and 3,000 meters of red rope.

 

Fractal Corals 1
by Miguel Chevalier


Another great artistic idea is to associate major environmental issues such as World
Ocean Day with a work by Miguel Chevalier, a particularly innovative Franco-Mexican artist. Baptized Saint-Tropez Couleur Bleu, his artistic intervention on the emblematic lighthouse of Saint-Tropez will be visible from land, sea and sky.


This colorful project, due to the initiative of Mrs Agnès Bouquet, has obviously excited the city and its mayor Sylvie Siri as well as Linda and Guy Pieters, who have reserved the upper floor of their foundation for the Mexican artist in support of this life-size happening.

 

 

The Linda and Guy Pieters Foundation is organizing a beautiful exhibition of art works by Niki de Saint Phalle from 10/09 to 14/11.


Altruist and committed feminist,
Niki de Saint Phalle was world-renowned for her monumental “Nanas”, expressive and brightly colored feminine statues in resin.
