Lévy Gorvy is getting into the property staging business in London. A recent rental listing in Mayfair boasts the flat is filled with works from the gallery:
Among the artists represented will be Vincenzo Agnetti, Alexander Calder, Enrico Castellani, Kazuo Shiraga, Pat Steir, and Cy Twombly. In an homage to Johns’ important body of portraiture, two works from Agnetti’s Feltri series, comprised of felt painted and engraved with text, are conceptual portraits, one a Ritratto di artista (Portrait of the artist), and the other a Ritratto di amante (Portrait of a lover). Agnetti’s esoteric conceptualism lends a philosophical tone to the group, which is offset by the gestural expressionism of the Shiraga, Twombly, and Steir works. The incident of light and shadow of the house will be pronounced by the shaped canvas of Enrico Castellani, and the slight movements in air currents will be likewise be made visible through the delicately balanced play of forms manifested by Calder’s stabile. At once conceptually rigorous and aesthetically balanced, this selection of works will enhance the building’s harmonious structure while complimenting its rich history of arts and design.
