La Maison (A solo exhibition by Jia Santos-Estrella presented by Pinto Art Gallery in cooperation with Artinformal)ArtPipe Events Filed Under:
Pinto Art Gallery is a contemporary art space in Antipolo City, Rizal. Since its inception, it has presented a number of events and exhibits, several of which were international in scope and significance. It ends the year with the stylistic showcase of Jia Estrella’s restorative interventions in La Maison which opens on December 16, 2012.
Jia Estrella is at home.
Channeling her special spatial acumen she will transform Pinto Art Gallery into a French-Moroccan abode. Incorporating art, fashion and interior design, she will alter the stark white space into a stylish yet comfortable lodging.
Pieces of discarded furnishings and furniture are resurrected into chic one-of-a-kind creations. These are interspersed with accessorial pieces from Majorelle, a line that was sourced and developed in Morocco with her partner Malu Estrella Jaidi.
La Maison is Estrella’s medium for discovery. Equipped with the flair of putting things together, she salvages, resurrects and repurposes both the area in conjunction with her finds and restorative interventions. Viewers will be enthralled by her passion, incisiveness and whimsical disposition as these are reflected on each and every item in the 2-storey installation. “This exhibition is an art de vivre journey which combines vintage Filipino furniture and European flair,” intimates the artist.
Jia Estrella is inviting us to the warm and elegant atmosphere of La Maison.
Pinto Art Gallery is located at 1 Sierra Madre, Grand Heights, Antipolo City. For more information please contact 63 (2) 6971015.
