Nathalie Du Pasquier

The Collection Stripped Bare by Its Artists, Even

10 October 2021 – 23 January 2022 

For forty years now, Nathalie Du Pasquier has been producing a protean work through which she deconstructs with stupendous poetry the boundaries between form and functionality, abstraction and realism, design and art.

A founding member of the Memphis Group in the early 1980s, she has invented a blazing gesture where colours, forms, and patterns spread out with exceptional jubilation and freedom on so many furniture, fabrics, objects, installations and finally, on her favourite medium, paintings.

Invited as part of the programme The Collection Stripped Bare by Its Artists, Even, she displays one of her famous cabins, created as a real setting to host the artworks from the Collection Lambert.

The Collection Stripped Bare by Its Artists, Even

Everyone knows how the close ties and friendships Yvon Lambert has forged with the artists he champions inform and influence the collection held in Avignon and the exhibitions that feature it. 

The museum cannot live without the presence and input of these artists. Throughout the year, they are thus invited to draw on this unique collection and put together an exhibition revealing their vision of the Collection Lambert.

This chapter written by Nathalie Du Pasquier follows BROCCOLI, the Loris Gréaud+Yvon Lambert show last summer.
