The artist photographer Vincent Fournier celebrates in "Brasília, une capsule temporelle", a new book published by Noeve, the beauty of this utopian city that never ceases to fascinate.

"My interest in the city of Brasília comes from a mixture of fascination and nostalgia for the stories and representations of the Future. Indeed, Oscar Niemeyer's city, the Brazilian capital built in four years in the middle of a desert, embodies the vision of the future of the 1960s. The pilot plan designed in 1957 by urban planner Lucio Costa coincided with the beginning of the space age and the first artificial satellite of the Earth: Sputnik. It is therefore the golden age of the "space age", and the city of Brasília, with its air of a flying saucer that would have landed in the middle of nowhere, shows nostalgia and the dream of a future frozen in time", details the photographic artist used in his work to explore the different mythologies of the future.

In order to account for this state, Vincent Fournier confides that he used the concrete capital as a set in which the inhabitants were staged. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987, this utopian city with the air of an open-air museum is distinguished by its architectural pearls that have become emblematic. From the sculptural staircase of the Palais de l'Itamaraty to the white dome housing the national museum... these places, all fluid, radical and excessive, reveal their photogenic beauty throughout the pages of this book.

Brasília, a time capsule, text in English, French and Japanese, 154 pages, 44,90 € or 69 € (signed edition and limited to 100 copies), Noeve editions, www.noeve.com

PAD Paris Art + Design PAD Paris Art + Design
Posted on 01/04/19 PAD Paris Art + Design
Le PAD, rendez-vous incontournable pour les amateurs et collectionneurs d’art et de design, revient pour une 23ème édition prometteuse du 4 au 7 avril 2019. Comme chaque année, les plus prestigieuses galeries françaises et internationales investiront le Jardin des Tuileries et transformeront ce lieu culte en un gigantesque cabinet de curiosités. L’évènement maintient son cap en se renouvelant avec des exposants de qualité, venant d’horizons très divers. De l’architecte d’intérieur autodidacte Thierry Lemaire à la galeriste Carole Decombe, ou encore François-Xavier Chamagne, transfuge des Puces de Saint-Ouen. Cette saison, les marchands cherchent à se distinguer en proposant des pièces qui reflètent leur goût très personnel, anticipant ainsi sur les tendances de demain. Visiteurs, amateurs, décorateurs ou prescripteurs de style viennent tous pour chercher la perle rare et piocher des idées d’aménagement intérieur. Le magnétisme du PAD reste donc l’invitation à pénétrer dans une collection personnelle et discerner les aspirations esthétiques et plastiques d’une époque. Il offre un écrin intimiste à ceux qui, par héritage et par passion, ont élu les Arts Décoratifs et le Design des XXème et XXIème siècles comme le cœur de leur collection. Et pour la troisième année, Marie-Laure Jousset, Conservatrice en chef Honoraire du Design du Centre Pompidou et Présidente du Jury du PAD Paris, sera entourée des meilleurs collectionneurs, conservateurs, architectes et décorateurs passionnés de design pour décerner le Prix du Stand, le Prix du Design Contemporain et le Prix du Design du XXème siècle.
