Maison Gerard and Bernd Goeckler are excited to announce that this fall they will be transforming East 10th Street (between University and Broadway) into Avenue Evennou in celebration of the work of bronze artist and designer Franck Evennou. This will be the first exhibition of the artist's work in New York. Opening December 1st, this joint exhibition will include an online presentation, window installations, and gallery viewing by appointment. In this unusual time, these galleries are seeking new ways to ensure their artists and clients continue to dream, feel inspired, and keep the senses delighted.
Franck Evennou expresses himself in bronze as others express themselves in verse; he has a poetic language inspired by nature and nostalgia. He is an artist who knows no borders, working across the mediums of sculpture, furniture, and jewelry. Through these diverse practices, he evokes the natural, the beautiful, and the historic. This collaborative exhibition will showcase new works as well as a selection of Evennou's elegant, organic, limited editions that span his career.
Evennou has made numerous pieces for collectors and executed exceptional commissions, including the monumental door of the residence of the French Embassy in Lebanon commissioned by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, objects and furniture in bronze and glass églomisé for Daum, jewelry for the Mint of Paris, and the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature à Paris, for which he constructed a forest of bronze.
