Galerie Chantal Crousel
In 1980, Chantal Crousel establishes the eponymous gallery in Paris —directed today by her son Niklas Svennung— with the aim of showing the transformations of contemporary artistic production in France and abroad. Chantal Crousel, of Belgian origins herself, makes the choice of representing artists from different nationalities who contribute to elaborating a universal language through different mediums.
Situated on rue Charlot since 2005, the gallery confirms its commitment to an artistic dialogue, equally poetic and conscious, by representing thirty–three international artists. Both young and established, they often question the social space by employing new forms for innovative ideas.
At the intersection of several mediums like sculpture, installation, film or music, these artists work on their close context (Abraham Cruzvillegas, Jean-Luc Moulène, Reena Spaulings, Wolfgang Tillmans, Haegue Yang…), they question the representation and the status of images (Roberto Cuoghi, Michael Krebber, Moshe Ninio, Wade Guyton, Seth Price, Clément Rodzielski, Willem De Rooij, Sean Snyder, Haegue Yang, Pierre Huyghe…), they confront social space (Thomas Hirschhorn, Fabrice Gygi, Oscar Tuazon …), language (David Douard, Glenn Ligon, Hassan Khan, Heimo Zobernig, Rirkrit Tiravanija…), or historical, cultural and biographical heritage (Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla, Fikret Atay, Tarek Atoui, Mona Hatoum, Melik Ohanian, Gabriel Orozco, Danh Vo, Wang Bing…).
Their works find their place in prestigious public and private collections, in France and abroad, and draw the attention in major international artistic events.
The gallery also represents them across the world on the occasion of art fairs: Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach and Hong Kong; FIAC, Paris; ART021 and Westbund, Shanghai; ARCO, Madrid.
