LE CABINET DE CURIOSITIES
SURPRISE OF THE UNEXPECTED

“In my mind, nothing is incompatible … it becomes about the surprise of the unexpected.” says Thierry Despont in regards to his fantastic exhibit Le Cabinet De Curiosities.

Located on the second floor of the former New York Mercantile Exchange, Despont's cabinet is a journey for the senses that must not be missed.  Curated with antiques from Steinitz Gallery in Paris and artists from Marlborough Gallery, Despont's personal quest to document a dream world has come to reality.

Known mostly for his sumptuous interior and architectural work, Despont, also represented by Marlborough, is an established painter and sculptor. His massive paintings of planets hail strongly in the Astronomers Room while his whimsical sculptures, made of found objects incorporating antique elements, are placed throughout the exhibit creeping, leaping, lurking, and hanging from all corners leading you in and out of Despont's extravagant imaginary world.

On view till Wednesday February 29th Le Cabinet De Curiosities is something no one should miss. Do yourself a favor and just go!

Thierry Despont, Le Cabinet De Curiosities, 6 Harrison Street
2nd Floor, 11 a.m - 5 p.m.
