he ‘Bogéna Galerie’ was set up in June 2000 in Saint Paul de Vence, headed by Bogéna Gidrol.
“…Right away, it developed its own atmosphere. The gallery is a mental image and the works echo it “A gallery owner”, explains Bogéna Gidrol, “must feel and communicate”. Moving from picture to picture, it is a matter of shedding light on ideas, revelation and spiritual states. For visitors, whether knowledgeable collectors or simple art lovers, the dialogue with the work begins at once. The question is not only, “What is the place of the artist in the history of art or in the market but why do I find the work so moving,” Bogéna, who sees the work of a mediator as one who clarifies latent ideas, helps visitors to understand themselves better through the artists’ works.” Agnes DeMaistres Bogéna Gidrol, a qualified architect and art enthusiast, presents artists that are searching for the essential while constantly evolving. She began working actively in the art world in 1995 in the USA, where she organized events and exhibitions in collaboration with galleries, in her role of exhibition curator.
Her stay in Singapore with her family from 1992 to 1994, first enlightening encounter with Asia, revealed a comon sensibility.
