éternel — french for eternal — features sculptural pieces by vincenzo de cotiis that place time, aging and preservation at the forefront. their presence seeks to forget functionality while exalting the weathering effect of time by experimenting with the layering of different materials into organic geometries. ‘the ethereal luminescence and transparency of the materials used, such as murano glass and iridescent metals, alter perception while the sutures attempt the impossible: patching time…’ comments the designer.

for the exhibition, de cotiis extended his vision further into the gallery’s space, transforming it by adding rough and imperfect surfaces combined with clean and minimalistic details. ‘we are delighted to bring the first solo exhibition by vincenzo de cotiis to france, with our entire gallery space transformed by his new sculptural works and interior interventions,’ says julien lombrail, director and co-founder of carpenters workshop gallery. ‘continuing our history of collaboration with vincenzo, with the exhibition en plain air in london in 2018 and our exhibition dysfunctional in venice for the biennale this year, éternel marks the next exciting chapter in vincenzo’s practice, crossing the bounding between art and design.’
