The Ginette Moulin & Guillaume Houzé Contemporary Art Collection.
Since 2005, Guillaume Houzé and his grandmother Ginette Moulin have presented contemporary art in La Galerie des Galeries, an art space they created in the Paris Galeries Lafayette flagship store, which was founded by Guillaume Houzé's great-grandfather. Each year they organize the "Antidote" exhibition, which is devoted to French and foreign artists. They have also started a collection together, which is now one of the leading French private collections and includes works by Xavier Veilhan, Tatiana Trouvé, Cyprien Gaillard, Saâdane Afif, Gedi Sibony, Wade Guyton, Ugo Rondinone, and David Noonan.
They have decided not to publish a traditional catalogue of their collection. Although this book includes a complete inventory of the works, the collection is presented through a comic by Jean-Marc Ballée, which figures hominoid artworks in a science-fiction context, as well as through cartes blanches given to five curators. Pierre Bal-Blanc, Claire Le Restif, Alexis Vaillant, Jens Hoffmann, and Christiane Rekade have thus proposed their personal view of the collection, as if they were presenting an exhibition on paper. This publication is also a carte blanche to graphic designer and artist Mathias Schweizer, who has conceived this surprising book.
