Joël Ducorroy, an Art and Letter’s Master at Paul-Louis Flandrin Gallery, Paris, until january 31st 2012

First, let me introduce you my dear friend Paul-Louis Flandrin (on the left on picture below , next to the artist Joel Ducorroy, courtesy Katia Feltrin). Paul-Louis is an antique art dealer and expert specialised in jewellery and silversmith (for three generations !), located not far from Invalides in very Chic&Deluxe 7th district (Les Trois Grilles,158 rue de Grenelle,75007).

His wife, the exquisite Francine Flandrin, is an artist (painting/ installation) and a curator. She invited french artist Joël Ducorroy to exhibit in the gallery space, which was a perfect setting for the pieces shown : words engraved on old silver plates, evoking the function of the object selected. I love words in contemporary art ( Magritte, Barry, Wiener…) for their suggestive power or even letter’s design, but there is another dimension here : french humour !  with a Deluxe style of course. I did love the long silver plate to serve cake engraved : ” Coutau, fourchette, miettes, miettes, miettes,” (knife, fork, crumbs, crumbs, crumbs, crumbs) and the silver plate for messages engraved “message”,

          

Did you see the hamburger below ?

Pain/Viande/ Pain (Bread/ Meat/Bread) !!

I like the blue plate too in the show case : “Famille Princière” (princely family).

In case you’re not from any Royal family-which happened sometimes unfortunatly- maybe the red can suit your taste :

And a project for coffee cup, when Malevicth meets Robert Barry :
