Véronique Sainten & Francis Cat Berro (Cat-Berro Gallery - Paris) and La Cage de l’Ombre Forte invite you at the Opening of the exhibition on Thursday 12 May at 6.30 pm.

Yves Carreau (1947-2014)
" To make images means to give something to see, to show as if pointing out at a particular thing. With this sign of the hand, it should not be forgotten that pointing out a finger at someone, means folding up at least three towards oneself. "

Throughout his life, Yves Carreau was passionate about all matters related to the image. Abstract to figurative signs, issues of black and white as well as of colors, from miniature to large size, single items to multi ... He was fascinated by all these subjects. However, since the 60s, his work has been essentially linked to the language of drawing and printmaking techniques.
Yves Carreau died in November 2014. He was our friend.
By inviting La Cage de l’Ombre Forte (which is in charge of his work) to exhibit a selection of prints and photographs of his studio, we wish to pay tribute to the artist.

Martin SZEKELY. Les années 80/90

C’est à la fin des années 80 que Francis Cat-Berro rencontre Martin Szekely par l’intermédiaire de la Galerie Neotu.
L’atelier d’ébénisterie Cat-Berro va alors fabriquer des pièces de Martin Szekely pour les collections éditées par Neotu ainsi que des réalisations spéciales que M. Szekely confiera à Cat-Berro : aménagement d’une chambre à la Clinique du Sport, accueil du Commissariat de La Courneuve, mobilier pour le musée de Villeneuve d’Asq, commandes privées, pièces pour la Cristallerie du Val St Lambert entre autres.
Depuis les années 90, Francis Cat-Berro, amateur du travail de Martin Szekely ne cessera de rassembler des pièces conçues durant cette période.

L’exposition intitulée « Martin Szekely : les années 80/90 » ( du 26 mars au 25 avril 2015) est certainement la plus exhaustive jamais présentée concernant cette période.
Sera présentée une vingtaine de meubles des collections Pi, Containers, Initiales, Satragno ainsi que des pièces uniques jamais montrées ou rarissimes comme le Vase Nord, les boites en cerisier Shätzle, la vaisselle des Faïenceries de Gien ou le centre de table fabriqué par le Craft de limoges.
Des plans, des gabarits, des ébauches ainsi qu’une correspondance entre Martin Szekely et Francis Cat-Berro permettent d’appréhender le processus de fabrication.
