The exhibition coincides with the opening of its new showroom space located in an architect's house in Bordeaux. DIALOGUES brings together the work of 10 emerging artists and designers from diverse backgrounds, some of whom are from the Global South. True to its mission of presenting artists who are invisible in the West, Galerie REVEL brings into dialogue the work of artists from South Africa, Brazil and Zimbabwe with that of local French artists, some of whom work only a few hours from Bordeaux. "Each artist / designer has his/her own discipline, his visual and narrative universe. However, what brings them together is the work of the hand, the relationship to the material such as clay, wood, straw, paper pulp. These designers have the heart to create unique objects that tell a lot of stories." says Prince Malik Jewiti, the co-founder of Galerie REVEL.

Press release
Galerie REVEL is pleased to present DIALOGUES, its summer exhibition on view from 8 July to 8 September 2022. The exhibition coincides with the opening of its new showroom space located in an architect's house in Bordeaux. DIALOGUES brings together the work of 11 emerging artists and designers from diverse backgrounds, some of whom are from the Global South. True to its mission of presenting artists who are invisible in the West, Galerie REVEL brings into dialogue the work of artists from South Africa, Brazil and Zimbabwe with that of local French artists, some of whom work only a few hours from Bordeaux. "Each artist / designer has his/her own discipline, his visual and narrative universe. However, what brings them together is the work of the hand, the relationship to the material such as clay, wood, straw, paper pulp. These designers have the heart to create unique objects that tell a lot of stories." says Prince Malik Jewiti, the co-founder of Galerie REVEL.  
 
Anton Laborde
Anton Laborde creates one of a kind objects and uique furniture pieces with wood marquetry. Trained by the Compagnons du Tour de France, Anton Laborde combines visual art and cabinet making in a universe inspired by the naive signature of Henri Rousseau and the shimmering colours of Alfred Mucha. Daydreams, childhood memories and landscapes mark his latest body of work, Indian Revolution. His complex and minimalist works on wood, which stem from a rigorous experimental approach, offer the viewer peace and comfort.
 
Xanthe Somers
Xanthe Somers's practice is informed by the politics of aesthetics, and more significantly how the colonial history in Zimbabwe continues to manipulate aesthetic values. Her work as a ceramic sculptor looks at reimagining the everyday and examining the subtle treason of objects. Through a sense of play, bright colors, mocking tone and exaggerated shapes, the artist tries to challenge the prevailing ideas associated with normalcy, beauty and refinement found in everyday, functional objects. 
 
 Claire Cosnefroy (France)
Claire Cosnefroy  is a ceramicist based in Paris, France. Inspired by nature, time and the interactions between living beings, she develops a singular language by shaping pinched and colombin stoneware and porcelain objetcs and sculptures.
Her practice is articulated around the search for an instinctive gesture in a speed of execution, in order to support a spontaneous setting in shape of her ideas. 
 
Humberto da Mata (Brazil)
Based in São Paulo and trained in architecture, Humberto Da Mata creates playful and unique collectibles that are the result of experimental research into the possibilities of materials and craft techniques that he conducts in conjunction with local artisans. The result is dynamic works with vibrant colours, unique shapes and textures. His latest collection, ORGUS VI, is based on a new experimentation on the confluence of paper mache and paint.
 
Monogram (France, Morrocco)
French architect Aro Vega is the designer behind the brand Monogram.
Fueled by the search for singularity, Vega's artistic approach is part of a desire for authenticity within an era where the personality fades gradually to the benefit of the tendencies. Both elegant and timeless, his creations blur the boundaries between functionality and aesthetics by playing with times, styles, shapes and materials, for a result close to the sculptural. 
 
Jan Ernst (South Africa)
Jan Ernst is a multidisciplinary functional designer based in Cape Town, South Africa. Drawing from nature as inspiration, Jan Ernst creates elegant and alluring ceramic designs that delicately balance form and function. Recently, Galerie REVEL reveals his latest body of work WOMB Collection during COLLECTIBLE Brussels 2022. Actually displayed in DIALOGUES.  
 
Maxime Goleo (France)
Designer, cabinetmaker and sculptor, Maxime Goléo creates contemporary furniture in solid wood, in unique pieces or in limited editions. Objects halfway between furniture and sculpture. He is interested in nature, tension, articulation and movement. He moves away from geometric and rectilinear shapes to tend towards organic, sensual and refined lines. His creations are to be seen, to be touched and to be felt.
 
Estelle Yomeda (Togo, France)
Estelle Yomeda trained in art history and with a degree in visual arts, is a French-Togolese designer and artist based in Paris (France). Her artistic process is based on discoveries of ancestral know-how and on human encounters with craftpeople. This ethic feeds her creativity and leads her to launch in 2018 her design studio « Kente Project » through which she creates limited editions and unique works. She materialized her first collection of furniture inspired by togolese know-how and the long tradition of french decorative arts in 2021.
 
Fabien Guillermier (France)
Fabien Guillermier is a cabinetmaker based in Bordeaux, France. He creates and produces artistic furniture covered with straw marquetry. He combines in his creations his technical skills as a cabinetmaker and his artistic creativity. He has developed and perfected a resin that makes the straw marquetry less fragile and allows the furniture to be used as a functional object.
 
Alix Coco (France)
Alix Coco has a background in architecture and is a graduate of the Camondo Paris School of Interior Architecture and Design. After a few years of practice, Alix Coco decided to establish her own design studio to develop her own creations. Alix Coco is very inspired by the world of her childhood and her memories of that time. She creates functional, playful and colorful furniture that takes us back to childhood.

Tom Jablin (France)

Tom Jablin is a graduate of the "métiers d'art" in Revel, France. He has been working for seven years in partnership with designers such as Joseph Walsh, the Haas Brothers, David Emery as well as in France, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and Portugal. In 2019, he will establish his workshop in France. Stone and more particularly marble remains his favorite material with which he creates abstract sculptures inspired by the living world. His sculptures are the result of a conversation between the body and the material. They present a transposition of forms and sensations, from anatomy to stone; muscles, cartilages, tendons, bones, tissues are mixed with veins, grains and crystals.
