The Gallery – Brussels
A home which is also a gallery – a gallery which is also a home.
This is The Gallery – Brussels and its owner’s philosophy.
Konrad Kern moved from Cologne to Brussels, where he opened his first shop in 1994 together with the artistic consultant Marino Fermi. From the very beginning he addresses collectors especially by presenting limited editions or pieces produced in small series. Later he decides to combine gallery and home, work and private life in one space located in an industrial building from 1928 where he exhibits and lives. The furnishing becomes a combination of elements which create a living and constantly evolving domestic environment. Visitors are no longer anonymous passer-byers but friends, who are welcomed in a familiar environment where they can recognize and share the patterns of their daily life and passion as collectors. Since 2010 the gallery regularly produces limited-edition collections or one off pieces designed by designers of various nationalities.
