Editions Thalie present “Private Architecture (oui oui non non)” by Valérie Mannaerts

The Editions Thalie are pleased to present their last artist’s multiple, Private Architecture (oui oui, non non), a jewelry signed by Valérie Mannaerts.

Launched by Nathalie Guiot, Editions Thalie has been involved in the creation of limited edition artists jewelry for several years. Sculptor as much as painter, the Belgian-born artist Valérie Mannaerts has imagined for this 2020 season, Private Architecture (oui oui non non), a jewelry inspired by the pre-Columbian pectoral jewel in leaf cutting. A singular jewel linked to the plastic universe of the artist: ornamental and whimsical. Private Architecture (oui oui, non non) unfolds like a fan. Like a talisman, it reveals and protects with its ceramic amulets representing small ghosts or spoons like good lucks charms.
A joyful and mysterious jewel!

Born in 1974 in Brussels, Valérie Mannaerts was artist in residence at the ISCP New York (2008) and De Rijksakademie Amsterdam (2007). Valérie Mannaerts has participated in numerous exhibitions, including Huis Clos, Biennale de la peinture, Musée Roger Raveel, Zulte (2020), Convex/Concave: Belgian Contemporary Art, TANK, Shanghai (2019), What is Ornament? Architecture Triennial, Lisbon (2019), Curtain Call, IFFR Kunsthalle Rotterdam (2018), Real Somethings, Bernier/Eliades Galerie, Brussels (2017), Solid Liquids, Kunsthalle Münster (2016); Everything Architecture, BOZAR, Brussels; Words aren’t the Thing, CAC, Vilnius (2015); Small Museum for the American Metaphor, RedCat Gallery, Los Angeles (2014); Orlando, BOZAR, Brussels (2013).
