GANGIRL WITH TALENT: PAULINE VINCENT
HELLO PAULINE, WHO ARE YOU? CAN YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF?
My name is Pauline Vincent, I am 30 years old and I am curator and director of A REBOURS, the store of the contemporary art foundation of Galleries Lafayette. It is a new form of museum shop, halfway between a concept store and an art gallery. We only present objects made in small series; artists’ editions, but also of the fashion rather sharp, in short, things that one does not find anywhere else.
I have always been passionate about creation in all its forms since childhood. I love snooping, searching, digging, small objects, and clothes. I love the beauty of simple things that embellish everyday life. I grew up in Paris and after a business school and lived in Shanghai and Montreal I studied fashion at the French fashion institute. It is therefore naturally that I turned to the trade of buyer afterwards by joining the group Galleries Lafayette. I loved this job and that's where I made my weapons.
WHAT IS YOUR JOB AS A CURATOR OF A REBOURS?
My work is very much in connection with the artistic direction of the foundation. Following the rhythm of the exhibitions, I meet the artists to understand their work and select objects that will reflect their universe from creators and artisans. I also work a lot with the fashion director of Galleries Lafayette to find together the young creators still a little too young to be distributed to Haussmann.
WHAT PART OF YOUR JOB DO YOU LIKE THE BEST?
I love working with my creative team and especially traveling.
WHAT IS IT LIKE TO BE A GANGIRL SINCE THE BEGINNING OF GANG OF EARLYBIRDS?
I am very proud to be close to the project since the first few days and to see that Fanny's eye is always accurate, relevant and ultra desirable. (We love you Pauline!!)
