Its founder, Bogéna Gidrol, architect DPLG, began to work actively in the artistic world in 1995, in the United States where she resides at this time with her family.
Her move to Singapore and then to Japan, luminous encounters with Asia, reveals to her a common sensitivity. From then on, a desire was born to create a link between art in Europe and Asia. While developing her artistic vision in France and in Europe, she organized various events in Asia.
Thus, she initiated the acquisition of a monumental and major work of Franta "Témoin" (6,70 cm) by the Museum of Nagoya, then curated the exhibition of Monique Frydman "The imprint and color" at the Tag Heuer space in Tokyo in 2000.
The same year, she opened her gallery in Saint-Paul de Vence not far from the Maeght Foundation. A place of life, radically contemporary, filled with light, where each work dialogues silently with the place. The gallery also opens its doors to other artistic disciplines such as music and literature, creating a space for exchange and sharing around a common thread.
Bogéna Gidrol also remains very active outside the gallery. Her link with Japan continues to intensify and she orchestrated the exhibition of Monique Frydman, at the French Embassy in 2009 for "No man's land" curated by Hélène Kelmachter.
For the inauguration of the new French Embassy, Bogéna Gidrol proposes a major work by Monique Frydman "L'absinthe" which will be hung in the atrium.
In 2012, at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, she also coordinated an exceptional monographic exhibition of Monique Frydman.
After the participation of the gallery in 2013 at Artstage Singapore, Bogéna Gidrol opened a space there with a group exhibition and a selection of original works by Manolo Valdès, Antoni Tapiès, Jaume Plensa, Zao Wou-Ki and Monique Frydman.She continues to work with them to this day, but also with the great modern masters, offering major works by Chagall, Picasso, Matisse, James Coignard (estate) and even Joan Mitchell. Works that she will share with up-and-coming artists such as Nathalie Deshairs, Jeff Bertoncino and Harry Morgan at these exhibitions and at the many international fairs in which she is an active participant.
Since 2014, she has intervened on the Parisian scene. She unveils for the first time in France the work of teamLab, the Japanese artists' collective, with a mapping on the facade of the Grand Palais during the Art Paris Art Fair. For this same fair, the following year, she exhibited monumental works by the Senegalese artist Ousmane Sow. Then she invested the Espace Commines for an exhibition of unpublished paintings by the artist Monique Frydman.
In 2021, she curates an exhibition for the artist Juan Garaizabal: "Place du Louvre" Paris, "Château d'Aunoy", Saint-Paul de Vence during the "Biennale de la sculpture", then Monaco at the "Fondation du Prince Albert II".
Numerous projects will soon see the light of day, including an exhibition of Franta at UNESCO, paintings and sculptures, and the gallery's regular presence at international fairs in the USA, Europe, Asia and Asia Minor.
