An exceptional selection of art and design pieces, in Biarritz from July 17th to August 15th 2020
‘Conversations’ was born after Jean-François Declercq and Marc-Alexandre Ducoté met in 2019, at l’Atelier Jespers in Brussels. A common taste for art, design and architecture, on a daily basis. The same pleasure of discovering emerging talents, and placing human relationships at the center of their actions.
Enthusiastic embassador of Basque craftsmanship, Marc-Alexandre Ducoté likes to confront viewpoints, multiply dialogues, create convergences as much as reveal singularities. Welcoming Belgian and international designers' pieces in Biarritz was only natural.
Used to his ‘Itinérances’ exhibitions, organized in Europe and Middle East, Jean-François Declercq and Design Brussels make a stop in Biarritz from July 17th to August 15th 2020, at édition du coté's gallery.
‘Conversations’ is the first stopover of Design Brussels outside of Belgium. This new platform was created in June 2020 by Jean-François Declercq and Roel Rijssenbeek. Visitors will discover a selection of artists and designers pieces, renowned or emerging, sharing similar themes or materials.
Conversations lead to conversations : those of artists and craftsmen to create their works, those of Jean-François and Marc-Alexandre to select them, those of the bojects between themselves in pairs or groups, and those of visitors...
