red tree

What is an individual, a solitary individual, if not a tree that grows without regard for everything it suppresses and breaks, grabbing all the nourishment, air and sun, a being that is fully justified in its nature and its being? What is an individual, if not a usurper?
Emmanuel Levinas, Difficile liberté. Essais sur le judaïsme

Must you stand like this in mourning white? Unshielded, you accept the dry rot of admiration, whereas the east wind incessantly moistens your fear. The cobweb of your roots tied up your happiness. You are still waiting for His breath. The Tent of Meeting will no longer protect you, and you will start to dress in green of the desert sand. His death agony made the metal dry, and seven arms disappeared in the dust of clouds. There is nobody out there.

From the last minute

Enari is a recently established gallery located in the heart of Amsterdam. It has been founded by Paul van Gemen and Christina Voulgari, two renowned individuals in the art industry. The gallery specializes in showcasing modern and contemporary art, including a diverse collection of exquisite paintings. With a focus on fine art, Enari boasts a team of expert curators who carefully curate exhibitions to highlight the best of contemporary artistic expression. Additionally, Enari is privileged to house a remarkable private collection, further enriching the gallery's offerings.

Galerie Boisserée, established in Cologne in 1838, has a fascinating history shaped by its dedicated gallerists. Johannes Schilling, a prominent figure in the art world, inherited the gallery from his father in 1988, eventually becoming its sole owner. The gallery underwent a transformation in 1990, becoming J. & W. Boisserée GmbH, and Johannes Schilling assumed the role of Managing Partner. Another notable curator, Thomas Weber, joined Galerie Boisserée in 1995 and swiftly rose to become a Managing Partner in 1998. The gallery boasts an impressive private collection, showcasing a wide range of contemporary art.
