Art-o-Rama By the Sea – the International Art Fair in the South of France Settles Into a New Home
Sans titre (2016) are awarded the Roger Pailhas Prize for best booth at international art fair ART-O-RAMA By the Sea.
Post-holiday glows were abound at this year’s ART-O-RAMA, which closed out Marseille’s milestone cultural event MP2018 Quel Amour! celebrating culture across Marseille – Provence. Swapping previous digs in the former tobacco factory at La Friche la Belle de Mai for a new site at the MJ1 Hanger in La Joliette waterfront. Gallery owners continue to be encouraged by the fair’s organisers to develop with the mindset of an exhibition space.
Championing contemporary art interventions in domestic settings (such as ‘Chambre 10’ at Hotel La Louisiane earlier this year) Sans titre (2016) won the coveted Roger Pailhas prize for best booth. The work of Agata Ingarden and Rahel Pötsch were shown, including glazed ceramic pieces like ‘The Moth & The Mirror Island (2018)’ from the former and a site-specific installation from the latter. Sans titre (2016) asked the young artists to ‘recreate the feeling of a salon, regarding both its meaning as a room and as a an artistic conversation, in the XIX century tradition’.
