Pauline d’Hoop is an interior architect, mother of 3 children and an art lover as well.She follows Frederic Forest’s artwork for years and we can say that she’s got a pretty nice collection of his drawings.
Here is her last appartment in paris. Here and there, she has arranged fetish objects and carefully chosen furniture that she was able to glean during her time. She lets the light through the volumes of the living rooms with its Parisian and casual style. A spirit that has already pleased many private customers, hotels, several restaurants such as Le Camondo and brands like Sézane
Frederic Forest’s works and limited prints arise and move according to his moods in the living room, the office and the lobby. The clear and delicate lines of his drawings are as light to place as to look. Architecture, body, dance, are all themes that could not cohabit together without the sensitivity of Frederic crossing them.
«I am always surprised that a Parisian or New York gallery has not yet presented him … I currently leave it to the precise selection of his work by Grammatical. »
ALBA is a visual essay inside the Barcelona Pavilion designed by Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich, a journey with the sculpture created by Georg Kolbe placed in a water basin.
The story told by the artist Frederic Forest and the photographer Quentin Simon follows a day of ALBA, her relationship with the architecture of this iconic place. The minimal drawings play perfectly with the silver photographies. ALBA meets and shares their vision of her feelings.
This graphic movie on paper shows the allure of light, the awakening of ALBA, stares the movement of her body dancing with the marble walls, her reflection, the nature that surrounds, and finally her escape to real life.

Frederic was glad to have been invited to decorate the rooms of the Barn hotel. You can find in each room of Barn hotel one of the drawings of the collection “Horse Series”
Set between the oaks, elms and silver birch, two large red-coloured barns emerge from the landscape. Tucked away in the Rambouillet forest, Le Barn lies in the heart of an estate covering more than 200 hectares where nature alone is master.
Wherever you look at Le Barn, there are horses. A veritable paradise for riders of all levels, you could almost believe that the Rambouillet Forest was created for riding.
Backing onto the Haras de la Cense stud, a major centre for the relationship between man and horse, Le Barn offers guests the opportunity to experience a personalized horse riding, as well as initiations to an approach of the animal on foot and on horseback, based on equestrian techniques and the knowledge on the horse’s nature revealed from the science of behavior: ethology.
