Diagonale du Fou by Sandrine Llouquet Poster-Final.jpg

The opening reception for Diagonale du Fou was held on the evening of 28 September, with the artist, Sandrine Llouquet arriving in Singapore just the day before! It was lovely to see some new faces at the event, who came across our invites in one way or another 🙂DSC_5165.jpg

Meanwhile, Sandrine has been kept busy speaking with guests who were trickling in for a first glimpse at the new work. It has been 5 years since her last exhibition in Singapore!

DSC_5203.jpg “Each of my artworks is a step left behind that shows the rebuilding of oneself: wandering, passage from one stage to another, rebellion, escape, rebirth… By pursuing my research on this idea of building oneself, I naturally came to study the history of alchemy and found deep similarities with my notion of art: a quest for wisdom that goes with material experimentations. Sine then, the esoteric/hermetic dimension has kept growing in my practice while I interrogate the ideas of religion and belief.”

Guests were treated to magnums of the 2013 Chateau de Trinquevedel Tavel Rosé—generously sponsored by our wine partner, Analogue Wine Merchant. They were perfect with our lightly seasoned pork belly sliders, if I might say so myself!

Not forgetting the evening’s morsels—inspired by Sandrine’s French-Vietnamese roots, Chef Joseph created canapés that gave a nod to her mixed heritage, such as mini banh mis made using fresh baguettes baked in-house, choux puffs stuffed with savoury mushroom cream and pandan & coconut financiers for a local touch.

Diagonale du Fou is Sandrine’s second solo exhibition in Singapore—the first being a solo exhibition titled I would prefer not to at Give Art in 2011. She is now the director of Salon Saigon, a new art space in a French colonial villa in downtown Ho Chi Minh City and has an ambitious new project currently on show at KENPOKU Art 2016 in Ibaraki, Japan through 20 November 2016.
