Without walls and lost in nature, the virtual exhibition space DMGP OBSERVATORY has been launched on the web, opening a window onto an interactive mobile world. It features a first exhibition entitled « Drawing A Collection Part 1 » with artworks taken from the private collections of the Observatory founders, Géraldine Postel and David Magnin.
In order to inaugurate this original venue for contemporary arts, David Magnin and Géraldine Postel made a selection among various paintings and drawings of various technics related to their philosophy, our society and its new technologies. The drawing is viewed here as the origin and the source of all art forms and explains the choice of this medium to start their project.
Through a free access on Internet, lit by a sun path in a fast day and night rotation, the DMGP OBSERVATORY is permanently open to all publics to allow free visits at any moment.
In this constantly changing world, it gives the opportunity to move virtually in time and space. The newest 3D technologies used for this exhibition space hijacks the obstacles of the present economic world and creates an alternative to the existing institutions within a sense of an infinite utopian space.
The DMGP OBSERVATORY allows to prefigure exhibition projects or to show artworks that couldn’t be exhibited elsewhere for practical reasons. The founders chose the term « observatory » rather than the terms foundation, gallery or virtual museum within a humble spirit, stressed by the flat roof of this virtual space, meant as an ideal temple, an abandoned site or a contemporary ruin under an ideal sky.
For the gamers and the explorers, the DMGP OBSERVATORY is accessible within a 3D access on PC and soon on Mac, and VR. In order to make it accessible for anyone, a stroll on video is immediately accessible on the homepage.
The DMGP Observatory is not only an emancipatory and unique virtual space, but it is also a communication tool to feature concrete projects and a physical appointment that will hold all its dimension in 2020. It is the keystone of a call for projects thought by David Magnin for the realization and the construction of an artists’ residency in the French Alps in homage to Charlotte Perriand.
Conversations with artists, art collectors, curators and visitors will contribute to thinking the next step for the construction of this artists residency that will helm creative artistic projects and will nurture their production and their promotion. This residency will give rise to a publishing house to edit multiples and limited series with artists.
The DMGP OBSERVATORY is an experience that you would like to support simply sharing the web site link with your net to provide more visibility to it and contribute this way to our action.
To support this project based on the flow of the artistic creation, you can ask information about the online artworks and / click on the crowd funding link on the homepage.
DMGP Observatory has been conceived by the art collectors and curators duo, David Magnin and Géraldine Postel, « notre monde virtuel et alternatif » has been designed by Arnaud Pepin-Donat within Unreal Engine and co-produced by David Magnin and Outcasts Incorporated® ,
To inaugurate this original venue for contemporary arts, David Magnin and Géraldine Postel made, from their own collection, a short selection of paintings and drawings of various technics related to their philosophy, our society and new technologies. Drawing being the origin and the source of all art forms, it seemed appropriate for them to start with this humble selection, to inspire and trigger the desire to develop this space and its possibilities.
