We believe that a new axis is emerging between Asia and the Middle East, two of the most ancient and richest civilisations of humanity. This new axis, in our view, is well on its way of becoming the new nerve centre of the art market, establishing new balances of power and new issues. We could offer many examples, but in any case, it is manifestly clear that a genuine movement, if not an upheaval of the art market, is taking place before our eyes. Additionally, John Dodelande and partners current initiative is to build an ambitious contemporary art collection, as we believe that the new emerging axis between in China/Asia could be the next fundamental milestone in art history.
In the same way that we develop a passion, we "collect" different peaks in the East part of the world; Carstensz pyramid peak (4884m) in Indonesia, the peak of Middle-East and Damand volcano in Iran (5671m) to mention a few. It is also for this reason that we have baptised this new project “East Peak”.

XAVIER VEILHAN, BORN IN 1963, LIVES AND WORKS IN PARIS. MAJOR ARTIST OF THE FRENCH CONTEMPORARY ART, HIS EXHIBITION IN THE VERSAILLES CASTLE (VEILHAN VERSAILLES, 2009) LEAD TO A MORE SUBSTANTIAL INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION. XAVIER VEILHAN HAS BEEN DEVELOPING, SINCE THE LATE EIGHTIES, A MULTIPLE SHAPED APPROACH : SCULPTURE, PAINTING, ENVIRONMENT, SHOWS, VIDÉO, PHOTO… WHICH FALLS BETWEEN FORMAL CLASSICISM AND HIGH TECHNOLOGY. FOR HIM, ART IS « A VISION TOOL THROUGH WHICH YOU HAVE TO LOOK TO UNDERSTAND OUR PAST, OUR PRESENT, AND OUR FUTURE ». THE PRESENTATION CONCEPT IS THE HEART OF HIS APPROACH. XAVIER VEILHAN THEN CARRIES OUT EXHIBITIONS AS WALKS (VEILHAN AT HATFIELD: THE WALK, 2012) OR LIFE FRAMES (ARCHITECTONES, 2012). THROUGH HIS IN-SITU INTERVENTIONS, IN CITIES, PARKS OR HOUSES, XAVIER VEILHAN REFLECTS THE SOCIAL DIMENSION THAT CAN REPRESENT AN ARTISTIC PROJECT AND QUESTIONS OUR PERCEPTION.
