It was our first date in a museum that set the tone of our relationship: art, art and again art.
Ever is hard to say. My father in law started collecting in the late ’80 and since then he never stopped. When we took over the collection 10 years ago the first work we bought together was at Code Art Fair in Copenhagen. It was one of the last photograph of Leigh Ledare’s series about his mother. I have this picture hung on the wall of my bedroom in Naples and the floreal blanket with the beautiful naked body of Ledare’s mum is still giving the same romanticism and vertigo as it was the first time I saw it in the fair.

To buy what you like - seems banal but it saved my life most of the time.
We make a decision after studying a lot, seeing a lot and also talking a lot about or with the artist we want to add to our collection. It’s a matter of feeling but also of understanding if it’s the right fit with the other pieces of the collection.
