This website is a place of initiation, an invitation to discover the Art of Life.

Its name pays tribute to the dragonfly, our universal emblem, evocative of the perpetual motion of Life. Indeed, Nature lies at the Centre of everything and brings us back to our own Centre.

Throughout my projects, I have always aspired to create and to convey this Art of Life. I wished to break with tradition in order to form today this ecosystem of well-being, while respecting Nature and its cycles, the land, the Men – farmers, artisans, artists, producers and freethinkers… – and the beautiful know-how.

Through the Domaine des Etangs, located in the Charente Limousine region, a place of Life and of well-being spread over 2,500 acres, in equilibrium between the Sky and the Earth.

Through the Collection Dragonfly, a universal and universalist collection of contemporary and ethnic art, minerals, objects and books, all channelling a message of wisdom, knowledge and heritage.

Through Créations Dragonfly, a line of objects that place the spotlight on the know-how of artisans, respectful of time and of natural resources. Through books, a selection of products and objects related to Nature and its observation, as well as specialties by local producers… which will soon complement the range.

And, today, through opening this “window”, dragonfly.fr, which will, I hope, reach your heart and your eyes, perhaps fill you with wonder, make you smile and, above all, reconnect you with the essential principles of Nature.

Anish Kapoor
Marble, gold leaf
95 x 61 x 58 cm

THE ARTWORK

A clepsydra of pure light. The precious setting of a solar eruption. Anish Kapoor reveals a unique radiance in the quietude of marble.

He is gifted with a cosmic intuition of materials. Turning emptiness into fulfilment. An accomplishment is attained in the encounter of forms, between the lines and the circularity, between the grey and the gold. A transformation. The alabaster alcove comes to life, the gold leaf makes the stone quiver. Each offers the other its dense and flowing power. They blend into one. At the back of the marble, the design of the future shape in a sharp stroke conjures up the artist’s intention, like the formula of the alchemist seized by a revelation

THE ARTIST

Born in 1954 in Bombay, India, this British artist has been producing a striking sculptural work for around forty years.

He interacts with each material, committed to its inherent quality, but also to its sheath as it encounters another force: whether another material, the body of the spectator or the surrounding air. Each piece then offers a sense of immanence and imminence. Here, the combination of marble and gold leaf produces a unique alchemy, as if the material had been altered. Like the beginning of life.
