Inspired by the Proust questionnaire, the questions we ask here seek to show side b of the most prominent collectors of our time, to reveal an aspect of their personality that few people have access to.
What kind of art do you prefer to admire: classical art, modern art or contemporary art?
I admire art when my inner senses cannot understand where the unlimited creativity of the human mind behind it got the inspiration and technique to develop and propose the art within its own surrounding circumstances, defining time, structure, physics, perception and social behaviour.
What values do you appreciate in a culture?
Authenticity, honesty, progressive, empathic.
In what other time would you have liked to live?
Now. If not now, before the Spanish conquest of the mexicas.
Which color do you prefer?
Where do you prefer to place a piece of art from your collection?
Depends on the piece of art.
Do you like to appreciate a work of art alone or do you prefer to do it with someone special?
What region of the world would you like to live in?
Scandinavia, Netherlands and/or Mexico.
For you, art is…
The material expression of the senses, for the senses.
