UN CABINET D”AMATEUR is a young venture established in 2012, a gallery devoted to contemporary art. All along the XXth century the visual arts have enlarged their scope, invested new fields -land and urban -scape, body, communication, performance- and appropriated all new medias. They have thus tended to privilege the collective versus the individual. They have become more and more public. In doing so they tend to obscure the unique relationship that exists between a work of art and the viewer, the intimacy that unites the work and its amateur, lover and ultimately collector.
UN CABINET D’AMATEUR intends to keep this once privileged link alive. We believe in the “aura” of art. We value the personal experience of the works. Bulgaria presents a rich scene of contemporary artists. Due to historical reasons and local conditions, they have been mostly under exposed. Only a very few ventures devote time and energy to promote and sell their works. UN CABINET D’AMATEUR is joining in to reunite the artists and their amateurs and collectors by presenting some of the most talented and interesting figures of the art scene.
