Koller Auctions Geneva Art Design Auction – Light balls bench – Interlux chair Manfred Kielnhofer

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.

Guardians of Time by Manfred Kielnhofer Mystique contemporary art sculpture Guardians of Time by the Austrian Manfred Kielnhofer observing and pretending the world. “The Guardians of Time” relates to the idea that since the beginning of time mankind has had protectors, both for historic and mystical reasons. It seems that only man himself is a potential source of danger for his own existence. In his works of art Manfred Kielnhofer deals with the natural human desire for security. Thus his oeuvre reflects genuine exploration, consideration and discussion of current as well as historic moods and sensibilities of his social environment. His works of art captivate with elaborate combinations of light and different technique. http://www.paranoias.org/2012/12/guardians-of-time-by-manfred-kielnhofer http://kielnhofer.com http://timeguards.com http://fotopark.at http://artpark.at http://contemporary-art.at http://lightart-biennale.com http://www.facebook.com/manfred.kielnhofer http://twitter.com/artbeyondlimits http://at.linkedin.com/in/contemporaryart http://gplus.to/contemporaryartdesign https://plus.google.com/photos/102958896899981777265/albums http://www.flickr.com/photos/artbeyondlimits http://www.tumblr.com/blog/contemporary-art http://www.youtube.com/user/kielnhofer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manfred_Kielnhofer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardians_of_Time_(Art)
