Kennedy Fine Art is proud to curate the Dragonfly Collection. This extraordinary project, exploring the relationship between man and nature today contains more than a 1000 works and objects ranging from tribal art to astronomy, from illustrated manuscripts to Hergé, from modern art to emerging artists.
The collection is housed, for the main part, at the Domaine des Etangs, an exceptional site situated in the Charante limousine with other 1000 hectares of forest, land and water. The Domaine aims to practice permaculture and promotes biodiversity in its approach to the land. The Dragonfly Collection is currently developing a program of site-specific works with internationally renowned artists, each invited to dialogue with this exceptionally idyllic setting.
Katie Kennedy and her team manage the collection in harmony with the collector. Beyond the everyday management of logistics and acquisitions for such a large collection, Kennedy Fine Art has created a rich archive and communication program which will be rolled out over the next few years. All art commissions are documented by curated texts, video interviews, photo archives and the collection proposes a mediation program specially designed for kids at the Domaine.
We invite you to discover an interview with the French-Vietnamese botantical artist, Duy Anh Nhan Duc, whose work and philosophy is in perfect harmony with the values of the collection. Duy Anh was commissioned to create art for Le Moulin, a beautifully converted water-mill that houses the Domaine des Etangs wellness therapy.
