Saatchi Gallery and Phillips de Pury & Co

Simon de Pury once again played the elegant host at a party that featured some works by German artist Martin Kippenberger. If you saw the exhibition at MoMA earlier this year you would have seen some of the work Kippenberger did on Hotel stationary. I love the intimacy of these pieces, so small and delicate and vulnerable versus his larger manly works.

Again a super glam crowd and a wonderful space to exhibit art. Peter Coffin's Alice in Wonderland-like staircase greeted visitors on entering. I love that piece too. I would guess it came from Emmanuel Perrotin as I saw a similar one some time ago at his gallery in Miami.
