EL CUOR NO SE VENDE
Location: Historical Archives & Museum of Hydra (free entry)
In an art market so dominated by commercial art shows, big names, VIP artists and famous art galleries, is it now possible to have a passionate art collection driven only by the heart? The answer is yes! Because the heart is not for sale. This simple but powerful motto has inspired the exhibition curated by Didier Guillon, President, Owner and Artistic Director of Valmont.
'In this museum of Hydra, which inherent story and magical location are emotionally charged, we invite visitors to come and discover new talents such as Isao Llorens, Quentin Garel, Lee Jung Woong and Yves Bélorgey. These artists’ works all conquered the heart of our exhibition’s curator, as they bear no speculation and seem to all be all united by a common thread. A thread made out of creative ethics, a true conspicuous comeback to craftmanship in the artistic work, and a certain sense of contempt for any need of a creative justification.' Didier Guillon.
