We cordially invite you to an exhibit of exclusive furniture masterpiece collection from world-class designers and architects 'Pierre Jeanneret' and 'Le Corbusier' - the Chandigarh Collection by Jacques Dwaorczak. For the first time in Thailand, presented by The NYAAARG collective, ambassadors and curators for timeless and rare design, bringing pantheons of ordinary and extraordinary arrangements to the Bangkok scene and society, fueled by Dennis Karlsson, Yann Jurczyk and Phollawud Bodiratnangkura. The Chandigarh Collection is exhibiting at the Bhakdi Building at the Nai Lert Park Bangkok on the evening of February 28th until March 5th 2020.

"The dream of a liberated city..."
At the time of partition between India and Pakistan, in 1947, the Punjab lost its capital, Lahore, to Pakistan. The Indian authorities decided to found a new capital for the state and called it Chandigarh or "fortress of Chandi". The Prime Minister, Jawaharal Nehru, wanted to make Chandigarh a model for the development of modern India, firmly turned towards the west, and called in a number of architects for the project. From 1951 until 1965, Le Corbusier, with the help of his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret, supervised the construction work. He created a horizontal garden city, with a layout and materials aimed at respecting the environment, adapted to climatic constraints and creating a social mix.

Although the dream of a liberated city fade away with forgotten promise but most of all with many hidden treasures. A collector, Jacques Dworczak has an opportunity that led him to Chandigarh and after many visits and years of exploring, research and inventories, he has brought together one of the world's finest collections of furniture from Chandigarh. And after diligent and painstaking work, he drew up a catalogue raisonné, listing all the pieces he had collected and providing a whole host of details. Chandigarh furniture was created for administrative buildings as well as for private areas. It is still a reference in design today. In an elegant work, Catalogue Raisonné du Mobilier Jeanneret Chandigarh, published by Editions Assouline, Jacques Dworczak has created a didactic tool to help explore and understand all the pieces included. The Catalogue Raisonné is an exhaustive work and also provides a reading of the conditions for creation during a period of reconstruction in the country. For example, Dworczak describes the different kinds of wood used, according to their suitability to the local climate. This was a very avant-garde approach, since wood resulting from deforestation was used to make the furniture.

To share the experience of masterpiece collection design, Jacques Dworczak has designed a “living” showroom or rather a showroom for living, which will host the second part of exhibition in April, on a hillside at Koh Samui, facing an endless sea, setting of over 1,000 m2. The innovative collector's guests can see, try and share the Chandigarh furniture on display and enjoy an environment worthy of a trip to paradise. During a stay lasting a few days, guests can admire and also buy the works displayed in context, "just like home". An "in situ" experience, but also "outside the world". A place to foster contemplation and to share exceptional experiences in the company of a host with many stories and anecdotes to tell. A passport for a waking dream.

Jacques Dworczak
"The collector in the shadows"
Jacques Dworczak is from a humble background, and has kept up the family traditions of a taste for hard work, humility and perseverance. After many years of study and practice during a high-level medical career, in 1992 this great art lover took up the role of an unequalled art expert, regularly sharing his knowledge in official cases for the customs authorities, the courts and insurance companies. A need to make new discoveries and a continual search for new challenges naturally led him to accept some exceptional missions. Attracted to objects linked to the sea, he bought the ocean liner, the France, in order to sell all its hidden treasures at auction at Artcurial in Paris in 2009.

Jacques Dworczak is a man with a thousand facets, generally underestimated and often little known. He is the kind of person you might read about in a novel. He is deliberately discreet and sometimes inaccessible, but is well worth meeting. Because of his great knowledge of art, and more especially the art of the Haute Epoque ("Early Art"), the 19th century, and to a lesser extent, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and modern design. And of course not forgetting Jean Prouvé, Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Picasso. And because of his outlook on life, most of all: challenges as a source of pleasure and pleasure as the driving force in life.
