Paris Art Design has now reached full maturity, and is celebrating its eighteenth anniversary with a new edition in the Tuileries garden from 27 to 30 March.
Its days of youth enabled it to assert an individuality that goes against the grain of traditional salons, with a refreshing selection that skilfully mingles 20th century decorative arts, design pieces, contemporary glassware and ceramics, modern paintings, indigenous art, Asian and pre-Columbian pieces, jewellery, silverware and tapestries. This eclecticism certainly appeals to the public, and has made the fair a highprofile event in an already brimming Paris calendar. People come here not only for the objects, but also for the decorative trends: a strong feature at PAD. Moreover, its highly successful formula has led to international expansion, in London and Los Angeles. They say that with age comes wisdom: does this mean that PAD has ceased to reinvent itself? Certainly not, when you see the pieces proposed by the 70 international exhibitors. The work of young talent such as the designers whose unique pieces, in limited editions, are showing at the Galerie Italienne, and that of more established artists like the German photographer Eberhard Grames, presented by the Armel Galerie, will be measuring themselves against big names like Alberto Giacometti – a star of the Galerie Jacques Lacoste, with a console and bas-relief executed around 1939 for Jean-Michel Frank, which adorned Jorge Born’s Argentinian villa. Other anonymous works celebrate handcraftmanship, such as the conch engraved with a human face by a Mayan artist in Mexico between 500-850 AD, showcased by Galerie Mermoz. Proving the adage that art is an eternal beginning, contemporary creators reinvent traditional materials, like the Chinese porcelain of Jingdezhen at the FitzGerald Fine Arts stand. All in all, PAD transcends cultures and styles, highlighting the sculptural beauty of objects. Sophie Reyssat
