Koller Auctions Geneva Art Design Auction – Light balls bench – Interlux chair Manfred Kielnhofer
10. November 2012
Koller Geneva is pleased to present at auction one of the most important collections of contemporary Aboriginal art worldwide. The auction will take place on 13 November in collaboration with „L’espace d’art Carry On“ the gallery of Arnaud Serval, who is one of the most long-standing and knowledgeable connoisseurs of indigenous Australian art. 125 lots representing the most diverse forms and techniques were selected for the auction. Consequently, the works to be offered at auction range from acrylics on canvas to sculptures and didgeridoos. Up to 1970 the art of the Aborigines was dedicated exclusively to ceremonial purposes and used for one-off occasions. Since then increasingly durable works have been produced, which narrate the story of the Aborigines.
Amongst the Geneva highlights are also two very decorative table lamps, made by Tiffany Studios, and several international Design pieces by Ron Arad, Gaetano Pesce and Elizabeth Garouste.
