ABOUT

Bogéna Gidrol, a qualified architect and art enthusiast, presents artists that are searching for the essential while constantly evolving.
She began working actively in the art world in 1995 in the USA, where she organized events and exhibitions in collaboration with galleries, in her role of exhibition curator.
Her stay in Singapore with her family from 1992 to 1994, first enlightening encounter with Asia, revealed a comon sensibility.
From this encounter, the desire to create a link between art in Europe and Asia was born.
While developing her artistic vision in France and Europe by organizing many exhibitions and installations, not only in the gallery but also outside, she also organized various events in Asia.
From 1996 to 2000, in Tokyo, Japan, Bogéna Gidrol coordinated over fifteen exhibitions in different locations and was the the driving force behind numerous partnerships with Japanese galleries and museums.
In collaboration with the Hasegawa Gallery, she was at the initiative of the acquisition of ‘Temoin’ [670 cm], a monumental, major work by Franta, for the Nagoya Museum as well as the organisation of two exhibitions of the artist’s work with the Hasegawa Gallery in 1997.
In 2000, she organized the Monique Frydman exhibition, «L'empreinte et la couleur» at ‘Espace Tag Heuer’ in Tokyo. Following this event, Yamanashi University ordered ten of Monique Frydman’s paintings and, subsequently, a monumental bronze sculpture by Carl Dahl.
Keen to maintain links with Japan and Asia, she jointly organized the exhibition, «No Man’s Land», with Monique Frydman at the French Embassy in 2009, curated by Hélène Kelmachter.
In 2010, at her suggestion, ‘L’Absinthe’, a major work by Monique Frydman was hung in the embassy atrium for the inauguration of the new French Embassy in Japan, in the presence of Bernard Kouchner, Minister of the Foreign Affairs.
From November 2011 to March 2012, Bogéna Gidrol initiated and organized an outstanding monographic exhibition of Monique Frydman’s works at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan.
Bogéna Gidrol with her new business partner Christopher Holder set out to expand the gallery in 2013, settling in a venerable old building at the foot of Saint Paul de Vence, a village long familiar to art lovers. The new gallery premises, just a stone's throw from the Maeght Foundation, offer visitors a brand new, radically contemporary light-filled space, where each work is in silent dialogue with its surroundings. The much larger premises mean the gallery is able to play host to other creative forms, such as music and literature, creating a shared space for experiencing the best that art has to offer.
Jeff Bertoncino, Carl Dahl, Franta and Monique Frydman were the first artists represented in the Bogéna Galerie. Then the family grew. New, well-known artists such as James Coignard, Michel Carlin, Sophie Rocco, or young, promising talents like Nathalie Deshairs, Bernard Abril arrived in the gallery. Contemporary masters like Manolo Valdes, Antoni Tapies as well as modern masters such as Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Juan Miro and Henri Matisse are also represented.
The works chosen conduct a dialogue among one another while taking us into their individual worlds. In this way, feeling becomes a journey of initiation, making us face up to our own destinies and bringing to the surface traces of the pain and joy that make up the story of our lives.
After her participation to Artstage Singapore in January 2013, Bogéna Galerie will open her space in Singapore. The gallery will start by a group show, in January 2014, showing a works’selection by Manolo Valdès, Antoni Tapiès, Zao Wou-Ki, Chu Teh Chun, Monique Frydman, Franta, James Coignard...

  • STEPHANE CIPRE  (+)

    Biography : BIOGRAPHY STEPHANE CIPRE Stéphane Cipre was born in Paris in 1968. Coming from a family originally from Nice, they all go back to live in the Côte d'Azur when he was four. In 1983, he embarked on a CAP of modeling stylist that he obtains with the best mention. At the end of this diploma, he joined the family business in which he designs fur models. Stéphane is enriched with knowledge in the fashion world, and learns the need and accuracy of manual work from the best workmen in France. His enthusiasm allows him a rapid rise and becomes a workshop leader at the age of twenty. During this experiment, Stéphane takes the opportunity to draw models for the collection of Chacok among his own models. In search of maturity, the young man broke with the family collaboration and restarted his studies in 1993. This time, he follows the teaching of Fine Arts in the evening at Villa Thiole in Nice, and continues this apprenticeship In 1997 at the Louvre school, at the Museum of Photography with the History of Art. That same year, Stéphane Cipre realized his first sculptures. Certainly still attached to his experience in fashion, he started this new career by a work of figuration. With all the beauty and sensibility that inspires him, it is the female body that is going to emerge from the young hands of the artist. Its shapes, curves and cambers are rethought and worked by Stéphane using bronze, steel, copper or even reinforced concrete. In 1999, the novice sculptor meet the painter Roland Coquerille. Thanks to the long conversations that these two men maintain, the artistic thought of Stéphane opens and develops. Very soon, the sculptor assimilates the importance of standing out and is now concerned to give a personal identity to his work. Stéphane then turns to a work on writing. Should we rather say that he reworks the writing? With accuracy and precision, he modulates it so that the subject it designates appears through the writing. His art is thus a surprising conf

  • Franta

    Biography : Franta is an internationally renowned French artist and sculptor, born in Czechoslovakia in 1930. He studied at the Prague School of Fine Arts before fleeing his homeland in 1958 to live and work in France. He has travelled all over Europe and spent time in India, Japan, Mexico, the United States, and above all Africa. Humanity is at the heart of his work, driving his creative output. The human condition has long tormented him. The emotional and visual shocks he experienced during his travels in Africa led him to break with the theme of despair that had hitherto been a prominent feature of his work – the despair of men tortured by the bureaucratic technostructures of the modern age. The lines of his art – perpetually swooping, intense and alive – began instead to celebrate life and the joy of physicality, incising and dissecting bodies and emotions and translating his own vital energy. Franta expands the limits of the body, laying himself violently bare and displaying his innermost being, his essence,and soul, thereby forcing the viewer to confront reality in a way that is sometimes hard to acknowledge and to engage in introspective self-questioning. Beyond his clear-eyed diagnosis of the human condition, his work is also suffused with compassion and generosity, transmitted to the viewer through a vision of others and their suffering and rootlessness, through the filter of his own life experiences. Franta’s Artwork as a whole is framed in terms of this duality of light and shade: it is redolent with death and at the same time a paean to life. “One possible definition of what it means to be human, against a backdrop of inhumanity”.
