Pavilion of Art & Design, New York art fair
10 – 14th November, 2011
Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory, New York.
Loic Le Gaillard and Julien Lombrail, founders and directors of Carpenter’s Workshop Gallery (CWG), are pleased to announce their participation in the inaugural Pavilion of Art & Design New York art fair, taking place November 10 – 14, 2011 at Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory.
Based in the heart of London’s Mayfair district, with a new space opening in the Marais in Paris in late September, CWG is renowned throughout Europe as one of the world’s foremost contemporary design-art galleries. During PAD New York CWG will engage a collaborative design-driven dialogue with its artists, presenting an exhibition that will redefine the concept of the “art fair booth” as we know it. The booth’s atmosphere will be punctuated with utilitarian sculptures to promote bold, contemporary and innovative design-art, where sculptural form prevails over the central functionality of the artworks. CWG will showcase a balanced marriage between a classic repertoire of design artworks—with esteemed relevance to historical staples such as the Jean Royere-inspired Royeroid Collection by Robert Stadler—while simultaneously focusing an unprecedented spotlight on emerging talents.
CWG’s featured artists at PAD New York include Charles Trevelyan, a UK-based Australian, making his American debut with his literally magnetizing, freestanding sculptures. Trevelyan’s balancing tree-like floor lamp, entitled On a Limb, radiates light up towards its canopy before reflecting it back down again towards the floor-plain. Sebastian Brajkovic, whose artworks are included in the permanent collection of the New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, will show his new conceptions from his notorious Lathe Collection. The Lathe series blends the new and old into an interesting balance and takes its name from rotating morphs that are the basis for most of the pieces.

Carpenters Workshop Gallery extends the boundaries of design by uniting and transcending the contested categories of design and art in thought-provoking exhibitions. Its focus is to promote and foster the careers of contemporary designers through exhibiting unique and limited-edition works in solo and group exhibitions and at international art and design fairs. These shows introduce the public to the latest design aesthetics, enriching and enlightening the contemporary design landscape and discourse whilst giving emerging designers a voice.
