The Feuerle Collection
As the well known Boros Collection too, the Feuerle Collection is housed in a World War II-era bunker. This one was used for telecommunication, first opened for the Gallery Weekend in April 2016 and refurbished for almost three years by the renowned British architect John Pawson. On about 6000 squaremeters Désiré Feuerle brings together international contemporary art, Imperial Chinese lacquer and stone furniture, Chinese wood and stone Scholar furniture from the Han to the Quing Dynasty, from 200 BC to the 18th century and Khmer sculptures from the 7th to the 13th century. Feuerle – who lives in Asia most of the time – comes from a contemporary art background, bought his first Chinese sculpture as a child in Hongkong and owned a gallery in Cologne in the 90ties, where he pioneered juxtaposing ancient art with contemporary and to re-look at antiques from a todays perspective. The master of meditation wants the visitors to excape into a differnt world and offers not only a lake room and one for burning scenting woods but also works by Cristina Iglesias, Anish Kapoor, Zeng Fanzhi or James Lee Byars. Dive into it and experience one of the most impressive exhibitions we have seen in a long time.
