TEFAF 2015 – This stuff belongs at a museum!

It’s Sunday afternoon. March 15, 2015. And my head is still reeling. Yes, I went to TEFAF 2015 yesterday and I’m suffering from Stendhal Syndrome so badly even Mr. Stendhal himself would feel extremely sorry for me and say, there there Interiorator – just take a chill pil and calm the fuck down will ya? And you know what? I’d say to him – Let me lay it on the line for you, Stendy! Life does NOT – I repeat does NOT – get any better if you’re into art and design as heavily as I am. TEFAF is the non plus ultra of art fairs and I have over forty (or so) pictures to prove it to you. And as Indiana Jones would say – THIS STUFF BELONGS AT A MUSEUM! Except it’s not at a museum and that’s all the more reason you really, really should visit TEFAF right now. It’s a once in a lifetime chance to see world’s very best art that is bound to end up in private hands. Go see it while you can – you have until March 22, 2015.

Oh. My. God. The Flore de Brantes exhibition stand was by far my favorite part of TEFAF. That tapistry! That blue cabinet! And that gothic church truck thing by artist Wim Delvoye – I was speechless. I was without speech (yes, I’m quoting Seinfeld here).
