A beautiful dinner at Louis Vuitton Espace was given last night (thank you Anja Keahny, director Espace Louis Vuitton München) to welcome the Malaysian artist Simryn Gill, who during the next 2 months, will take over both the upper and lower levels of the gallery to pursue new content, culminating in an IN SITU-1 exhibition.
On the upper level floor, a beautiful architectural table installation was created for this occassion/dinner by Robbrecht en Daem arhitecten to host this intimate dinner for 25 people. A beautiful group of art people were here, Matthias Mühling, Bart van der Heide, Roger Diederen, Toni Schmidt, Christine Vendredi-Auzanneau (head of Art & Culture of Louis Vuitton/Paris), , Tracy Williams, (Simryn Gills’ New York gallerist), Phillip Keir (Board of directors of Biennane of Sydney) Tracy Williams, (Simryn Gills’ New York gallerist), architect Hilde Daem, Gürsoy Dogtas and few more of wonderful people. Great evening!

For the duration of this project, from September to November, the gallery space act as sites of creative production and presentation, offering visitors the unique opportunity to witness both the process and the outcome of artistic expression. IN SITU-1 completes the circle of creativity by inviting the viewer to take an active role.
In Duchamp’s own words: “The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contract with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.”
