The Boghossian Foundation’s exhibition How will it end? and events are accessible only on presentation of the Covid safe ticket

Conceived by Louma Salamé as an immersive exhibition, Flambloyant invited visitors into the home of a fictional collector from the 1920s and 1930s.

Flamboyant is an immersive exhibition, inviting visitors into the home of a fictional collector from the 1920s and 1930s. Upon entering the Villa Empain, they will rediscover this unique architectural gem built in 1934, entirely furnished in the Art Deco style and adorned with a multitude of paintings, sculptures and furniture from this period.

« It takes aesthetic daring and an impeccable eye to realize a fantasy exhibition and to do so without a hint of nostalgia (…) What Salamé has accomplished here is the creation of a dream, set and dressed, so to speak, with furnishings and art of the period. It is an exceptionally (and intentionally) atmospheric exhibition without human engagement and without sentimentality. (…) Installing art in an engaging manner is a rare talent. Visitors to the exhibition are transported back to the 1930s, imaging the villa’s fictive owners, while admiring their home and art collection.
Flamboyant “blazes” and is truly exceptional. »
