Collection David H. Brolliet, Geneva
The Fondation Fernet Branca presents an exhibition of the collection of David Brolliet, collector from Geneva who for the past forty years has been passionately committed to contemporary art.
Known for his political commitment, David produces films and appears as a singer and actor and has more than one string to his bow. However, this exhibition focuses on the collector, his eclecticism, his favorite works, his commitment. The selection of works traces David Brolliet’s path since his first piece chosen at the famous Geneva gallery Pierre Huber as an 18 year old: a sculpture by the Lyon artist Daniel Aubanel. Then come other Lyon artists and Swiss artists, some of them very well known like John Armleder, Sylvie Fleury, Roman Signer or Pipiloti Rist. In the middle of the nineties David H. Brolliet takes a base in Paris where he will meet the new art scene from that time: Saâdane Afif, Kader Attia, Wang Du, Richard Fauguet, Marlene Mocquet, Bruno Peinado, Barthélémy Toguo, Erwin Wurm, Chen Zhen…
