The Casanova series, which pays tribute to the man considered “the most alive of living beings” in Stefan Zweig’s words, grew out of a hybridization, an energetic intersection between painting, photography, and sculpture. “An orgy of diverse materials enabling, through the discomfort it provokes, the creation of a dialogue between the artwork and the beholder ” explains Thibault Hazelzet.
Founded in 2007, Galerie Christophe Gaillard - one of whose particularities, without being a guiding principle, is its strong representation of women artists - can be seen as a trajectory space for a new generation of emerging artists (Julien Des Monstiers, Cate Giordano, Rachel de Joode, Hannah Whitaker, Letha Wilson).
It also represents great figures of contemporary art (Hélène Delprat, Katarzyna Kozyra or Richard Nonas).
Futhermore, working with the agreement of the estate, the gallery aims at enhancing the pertinence of recognized artists from the 60s to the 90s (Michel Journiac, Tetsumi Kudo, Daniel Pommereulle and Pierre Tal Coat).
The gallery opens up to the international market by developing a network of partner galleries and by taking part in many art fairs such as Art Basel, Art Basel Miami, Arco Madrid, Artissima, FIAC, Artbrussels, Paris Photo, Independent New York, Frieze Masters.
