Exhibition "Dr Albert Delucq, Journal d'une collection de province 1874-2014"

From south-west deep-seated families, born toulousain heart bordelais, Mathias Coullaud now contemporary art gallery’s director with Audrey Koulinsky in Paris, in the Marais — Galerie Coullaud & Koulinsky — do homage, with a « saga » exhibition, to his origins, his family and to all the finest french collections. Taking one of the greatest figure of his family, the gersois Albert Delucq, the gallery underlines his interest for those collections called « from province » who make our territory wealth. His family Coullaud, related to Delucq, to Louis Delucq and many others families from the bordelais, known perpetuate this tradition of collecting and love of art. Furthermore, associated with the bordelais jeweler Paul Bouyssou (24, rue Bouffard à Bordeaux) Mathias Coullaud still closely linked to the city of Bordeaux.

Frome the April 10 to June 21 2014, within the exhibition « Dr Albert Delucq - Journal d'une collection de province de 1874 à 2014 », the gallery Coullaud & Koulinsky literally transforms itself to show, rather than the true collection of uncle Albert — forefather of Mathias Coullaud, patron, philanthropist, collector, great doctor, mayor of the city Vic Fezensac, figure celebrated by Louis Malle in his movie Milou en mai — but the collection he could bequeath to his descendant, a kind of dreamed collection and continued by Mathias Coullaud.

The parts of the collection will be staged in two "period room » ; they will be pu in historical perspective to do homage to the link collector-dealer, with a focus on the collections that are mounted outside Paris ; they will finally be put into narrative around the figure of this province collector Albert Delucq, narrative that will serve as a pretext to revisit the definition of what can be a collection, a collection that takes part of life and destiny of a man.
