Granville Gallery / presenting Matali Crasset
Matali Crasset was born in 1965 and trained as an industrial designer. She considers design as research and works from an acutely decentralized posture, which allows interventions on both daily life and the projection of scenarios for the future. Editions Rizzoli published an important monograph of her work in 2012 and the Centre Pompidou presents an exhibition of her work that takes the form of a vast installation Le Blobterre, running through April 2012. Crasset has worked with Granville Gallery since 2006.
Granville Gallery also represents Elizabeth Garouste, Christian Ghion, Philippe Daney, Pascal Mourgue, Patrick de Glo de Besses, Jean-Baptiste Sibertin Blanc, Amaury Poudray, Patrick Nadeau, Les Héritiers,Vincent Dupont Rougier, Eric Jourdan,Sam Baron, Valentina Carretta, Lucile Soufflet, Mark Braun and Eve Miro.
The gallery opened a second space to reinforce its commitment to defending and supporting the creative arts, and to develop its originality in the edition of objects, furniture, scenography, unique pieces and limited editions in the field of design. Once a year, the gallery will also organize Design Month, a group design exhibition with an imposed subject.
In addition to its regular program, Granville Gallery pursues collaborations with the design schools of Rennes and Saint- Etienne, Museums, art centers and Fabrica. Once a year, the gallery provides the opportunity for a young designer to debut a gallery exhibition, supporting design production and publishing a catalogue. It also coordinates the embellishment of interiors and produces public and private commissions.
